Update: Sorry gang, it looks like Rockstar's managed to pull down all instances of the trailer from YouTube. Don't fret if you missed it -- the official trailer releases this Monday.

Quickly now, gumshoes -- somehow, the trailer for Rockstar's upcoming detective opus LA Noire which was due to drop this Monday has released a great deal earlier than that. Folks on the YouTubes have uploaded leaked versions of the trailer with haste, and, while it's still available, you can watch it just after the jump.

It is, as you might expect, super hot -- though the most attractive thing about the video in question isn't all the crazy-good facial animations or stellar voice acting: It's the announcement of the game's May 17 release date. It cannot come soon enough. No, seriously, it can't. To the time machines!

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
