"Battleship" isn't the only other piece of board game cinema coming at you this summer.
"All the excitement of the game without the hassle of playing it and with none of the excitement" (don't think about that too hard) is the way at least one board game aficionado describes the upcoming "Guess Who: The Game, The Movie," a heart-pounding mix of "Die Hard With a Vengeance" and pretty much any "Scream" movie.
This mock trailer comes courtesy of the gang at Uncle Dave's Video, who have also conjured brief looks at what will comprise the onslaught of board game movies for many summers to come, including "Operation" (Summer 2013), "Don't Wake Daddy" (Summer 2014), "Sorry" (Summer 2015) and "Jenga" (Summer 2016). That last one looks like it could be the disaster movie to end all disaster movies!
Personally, we always thought "Operation" would make a great "Saw"-ish horror movie … if people, you know, still made movies like that.
Check out the trailer for "Guess Who: The Game, The Movie" (and many more) below, courtesy of YouTube. It's "Definitely a movie based on a board game!"
