BRMC featured in trailers for The Counselor and Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag

Last month, there was some excitement because BRMC’s song “Sell It” is in a trailer for the film The Counselor, which comes out this week. Here’s the trailer and a short synopsis:

Movie: The Counselor
Genres: Crime, Drama And Thriller

This is a David and Goliath story of one veterinarian’s battle to protect her patients (tigers, lions and even house cats) from big corporations, with their big corporate money, that will shamelessly do anything to animals to increase their bottom line. She starts a grassroots movement that is fueled by passion, but appears to be losing the battle. Then, unexpectedly, she realizes that the corporations accidentally left her a giant loophole. In a scramble to take advantage of this unforeseen gift, she leads the crusade passing legislation protecting animals from de-clawing in seven cities in just six weeks.

A little bit earlier in September, PC Gamer and Tech 2 posted about BRMC’s song “Hate The Taste” playing in Ubisoft’s trailer for multiplayer in the new Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag game (release date 10.29.2013 on XBOX 360/Ps3/Wii U and Day 1 for whenever PS4 and XBox One). Phil Savage of PC Gamer writes “This multiplayer trailer is packed full of violence. And also the band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, for some inexplicable reason.”  Shunal Doke of Tech 2 writes: “The trailer is comprised entirely of gameplay footage taken from cinematic angles with the song I Hate the Taste by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club playing in the background.” Well, close enough. This Assassin’s Creed game is very pirate-themed, so appropriate for BRMC’s music.
