The Bandito Brothers, the production company behind the commercial hit Act of Valor have released a teaser trailer for their sci-fi attempt, The Prototype. The story follows a humanoid robot (or a roboticized human) from a government program that goes rogue.  As is the case when your superhuman test subjects break free, anything goes in the attempt to bring them down, regardless of how much money you pumped into their creation.  The Prototype, written and directed by Bandito Brothers’ Andrew Will, stars Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger), Joseph Mawle (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and Anna Anissimova.  Hit the jump to check out the teaser. 

Check out the teaser trailer for The Prototype below (via Deadline):

Personally, I think the character looks a bit like Hellboy’s Abe Sapien decided to try on The Rocketeer’s helmet, or a stealthier version of the none-too-friendly bots from I, Robot. That being said, the trailer looks like it could be a fun ride.  Comparisons have already been drawn to District 9 as far as themes go (I can buy a line about an individual going through a transformation and all the Kafkaesque complexes that come with it; not so much the racial thru lines, however).  The trailer has also been compared to such video game fare as inFamous and the awkwardly similarly titled, Prototype. As you can see from the teaser, there is no expected release date just yet.  Do the Bandito Bros. have another winner with The Prototype?  What do the rest of you think? Please let us know in the comments below.
