Sony Playstation and Deutsch L.A. follow up last year's "Michael" film with "All-Star," which brings together the biggest stars from the Playstation world in one film, doing what they do best: throwing a few punches.

Created to promote the new Playstation Game, PS All-Stars Battle Royale, which lets characters from different games come together to duke it out, the film does the same thing, just in real life -- along with an appearance from the gamer who brought them together in the first place. Director Simon McQuoid at Imperial Woodpecker directs the fun, high-octane film, which was shot in Prague.

The commercial was previously teased by Playstaion through 15-second videos, which can be seen on YouTube. The brand also included 23 Easter Eggs, like the typewriter that types in a foreign language, seen in the first few seconds of the film -- can you translate the text?
