A trailer for South Korean movie “The Terror Live” is coming under fire for ripping of the Battlefield 3 theme used in the trailer.
According to Korean site ThisIsGame, the trailer’s music style and build up are said to be too close to the Battlefield 3 ambient score featured in the game’s trailer.
The movie’s distributor, Lotte Entertainment, told ThisIsGame, “The Terror Live has elements in which a terrorist act is being covered live, and this could be similar to video games. Thus, since the movie tried to convey same feeling you get from video games through sound, it may have ended up evoking a similar sensation.”
There are certainly elements that seem similar—elements that are more than just sound.
Battlefield 3’s Korean distributor GamePia told ThisIsGame said it hadn’t yet full assessed the situation.
Check it out the trailer below. What do you think?
