Earlier this week, we brought you the teaser poster for Rodrigo Cortes‘ upcoming thriller, Buried. The film stars Ryan Reynolds opposite a cell phone, a lighter, and a coffin. If the image of Reynolds being stuck six feet under had you shaking in your boots, we’re sure the trailer will have you running for the hills. Take a look…
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 his claustrophobic death trap.
The majority of the trailer is filled with darkness along with a conversation between a panicked Reynolds and a random 911 operator. Why is it that every time someone needs help in a movie, the police are never able to give it? In this trailer, he states that he was hit in the head and he doesn’t know where he is. She replies with “How are you calling me?” Shouldn’t she be trying to keep him on the line so she can trace his signal and possibly save his life?! Ugh, Hollywood.
What do you think of the teaser trailer for Buried?
