I love everything Neill Blomkamp does. District 9 is still one of the best movies of all time. It was only fitting that the South African-born director who loves mechs and robots created an Anthem launch trailer to rival all launch trailers.

Last night, “Conviction” – An Anthem Trailer From Neill Blomkamp went live on YouTube and it presents a live-action take on the Anthem story. It features epic scenes set across the gorgeous open world, some fantastic acting by what sounds like South African actresses and actors, and a glimpse of the story to come in the game.
If anything, you would think that the trailer was a showcase of an actual upcoming film the way it has been presented. It oozes massive production costs and passion and it could be easily developed into its own movie or series at its current state.
Take a look at the epic trailer below;
Anthem releases today across Xbox One and PC if you are an Origins Access Premier subscriber and on 22 February 2019 for PS4. Xbox One subscribers will have a 10-hour trial of the game and progress will carry over to the main game. PC subscribers will have full access to the entire game so technically the game releases today for PC as long as you have a Premier membership.
