The new 'official' trailer has been released! It's much shorter and VERY similar to the commercial currently found on networks everywhere. It has a few significant changes, though: it reports that the movie is 'now in theaters', and shows short scenes to include Burrows and Karyo with the cast members mentioned in the narration.
Reports from all over North America are coming in - the Wing Commander Movie Commercial has been seen on TNT & the Canadian SPACE channel as well as the originally reported MTV.
After learning that Wing Commander Movie commercials are being shown on MTV now, I popped in a tape and recorded whatever I could find. I was able to catch one - here's exactly what's in it. If someone can make a realmovie of one of these commercials, it would be much appreciated!

Gaming news giant Gamespot has mirrored the Wing Commander Movie trailer! You can read their article and download their version at Headline Gamespot here! No more waiting in line...
Following up on the news update from this morning, CIC visitor Maik Knopf has translated the German news updates mentioning Wing Commander at gamers.de and rivazone.de. He sent us this snippet.
Jibbo noticed a rather odd easter egg in the Confederation Handbook. Turn to page 116 and find the image captioned "View of Savant's deep layers of brain tissue between brain stem and left frontal lobe." Now compare that picture of Pilgrim brain tissue to the below image of the Lagoon Nebula, taken in 1995 by the Hubble Space Telescope. Eerie...
The Dude has kindly provided us with another mirror for the Wing Commander Movie trailer! You can grab the large version here.
Wing Commander Movie-Trailer released
The trailer for the Wing Commander-Movie was released recently. The result was that many download sites broke down due to heavy traffic. WCNews offers a list of mirror sites.
As reported on gamers.de, the Wing Commander Movie trailer is out now. You can download it here.
More sites that were kind enough to mention the CIC: GameArt, The Silicone Edge & Online Gaming... thanks!
The CIC has found a pair of German news sites referring to the movie trailer (we get more hits from Germany than any other country except the US). The first is gamers.de here and the other is rivazone.de here. Even if I can't read anything on the site, they both look cool. There is also 3dnews.net's mini-article. We also have a more permanent listing of links to the trailer in our Files area here.
