Since buzz started coming from this movie following its appearance at numerous film festivals, I’ve been keeping an eye on the updates. Now the movie has a distributer in the form of Lionsgate, a new Saul Bass- Hitchcock style trailer has been released which you can check out below. The movie follows Ryan Reynolds as an American contractor in Iraq who is abducted and buried in an unknown location and left with only a mobile phone and a zippo lighter. He now has to find a way to give his captors the ransom on his life before he runs out of time. It’s an interesting concept and should give Reynold’s a real chance to flex his acting muscles and prove he can carry a film on his own.
The Rodrigo Cortés’ directed movie is expected to hit UK theatres on October 1st.
