We would expect a pretty cool trailer from Daniel H. Wilson's Robopocalypse -- it is, after all, in the works to become a Steven Spielberg film.

The coolest part about this trailer, however, is that it was made by a fan for a contest hosted by Doubleday. Contestants were provided with images of the cover, excerpts from the book, advance praise and audio clips (including an interpretation of Archos, the robot leader).

The following trailer by Stephen Lunsford was the winner:

I was lucky enough to review Wilson's debut novel, and I found it haunting, mostly for the humans' reactions to the robot rebellion.

What do you think? Has the winner earned it?

The book's on shelves now. Are you grabbing a copy?
