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.
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.
