ryan reynolds buried 2

After X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Proposal, I haven’t seen Ryan Reynolds out and about for a hot minute. While following those movies, perhaps it’s a good thing that his upcoming project is Buried. Have you heard much about this film? A couple of photos have been released from it via the Spanish site Allidos. Allow me to school you on the basics of it. All the info you need is below.

Buried is about a guy named Paul (Reynolds) a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After he’s attacked by a group of Iraqis he randomly wakes up to find himself buried alive inside a coffin! Armed with only a lighter and a cell phone he’s in a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap. Are you kidding me? Isn’t that the opening scene of every Saw movie? Waking up in some type of restrictive space or device and not knowing how you got there?

Ryan Reynolds buried coffin

I’m happy to see Reynolds in something that doesn’t involve super-mutant powers or romance, but come on? Is that a cell phone in the above photo? I’m assuming he’s using it for light, because if I can’t get service in a parking garage there’s no way he’s getting any bars in there! Buried is set for release next year, but a specific date hasn’t been set. It’s directed by Rodrigo Cortes.

What do you think of Ryan Reynolds in Buried?
