Trailer: Buried

There are no two ways about it, this is a cracking trailer:

Sure the poster* is a total Vertigo rip off (homage?), and yes we've seen this plotline play out on an episode of Alias, but Rodrigo Cortés' film nevertheless has my interest piqued. 

Official synopsis:

Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is a U.S. citizen working as a contract driver in Iraq. After a swift and sudden attack on his convoy, he awakens to find himself buried alive inside a coffin with nothing more than a lighter, a cell phone, and little memory of how he ended up there. Faced with limited oxygen and unlimited panic, Paul finds himself in a tension-filled race against time to escape this claustrophobic death-trap before it’s too late.

Australian release date: 7 October 2010

*This poster is also worth a look.

And let's not forget that episode of CSI directed by Quentin Tarantino which had the same basic idea (which he used again in Kill Bill Vol 2).

The difference of course being that Kill Bill is good, Buried looks good and CSI is effing terrible.

I haven't seen that ep of CSI, but definitely should have thought of Kill Bill - good call!
