We just told you about our visit to this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and one of the movies that will be playing is the Ryan Reynolds‘ flick Buried. Earlier we brought you some photos from the set of the film, and now a trailer has finally been released. Over at MTV, they were given the heads up on the latest from director Rodrigo Cortés, and the trailer really highlights the feeling of claustrophobia.
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. This is a huge step away from Reynolds work as the stressed out assistant in last summer’s The Proposal.
It looks like the majority of the film will take place in one confined area, without a lot of distractions. The only thing that continues to boggle my mind is the character’s ability to get reception with his cell phone. My phone goes out in the elevator, yet his stays active inside a concrete coffin? How is that right?
Here’s the poster and trailer…
What do you think of the trailer and poster for Buried?
