Along with their very cool booth at Comic-Con, the folks at Lionsgate are looking to generate some heat and invoke more Hitchcock references with a new trailer for Buried, the movie that sees Ryan Reynolds buried alive for the entirety of its run time. The new trailer (seen after the jump) reveals much more of the plot, including some of the obstacles that get in between Reynolds’ character and his escape. But there’s still plenty of mystery. In my review from Sundance, I applauded the film for being “an interesting and bold piece of filmmaking.” It shows a great deal of potential in director Rodrigo Cortes. However, I was not then (nor am I now) convinced that it will catch the eye of the mainstream. This new trailer may help, but only time will tell.
Check out the synopsis and trailer after the jump…
Paul Conroy (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 deathtrap before it’s too late.
Buried is in theaters in limited release on September 24, then nationwide on October 8.
