We all loved King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters for its David and Goliath story and its peek into the hardcore geek life of competitive arcade gaming. Whether it was completely accurate or not (it was NOT, by the way), it was something that gamers and non-gamers were able to enjoy and have fun with. I’m not sure who is making this, and I’m not sure when it will be out, but Bangback: The Pinball Movie looks to be providing a similar experience. Rather than a David and Goliath story, however, this one focuses on the return of the man who used to rule competitive play in pinball tournaments. The former #1 player simply disappeared from competition roughly ten years ago, but now he’s ready to come back. Check out the trailer below.
Oh, excuse me, but I was just informed that I should not be calling it a comeback.
And as an added bonus, quite possibly the greatest music video of all time.
