Watch This: Official Trailer for Thomas Jane’s Dark Country


Sony Pictures and Stage 6 Films have provided us with a cool first look at the first trailer for Dark Country, the directorial debut of Thomas Jane, best known as the Punisher and for his current work on HBO’s new hit show Hung. The film follows the story of a newly married young couple, played by Jane and Lauren German (Hostel: Part II), who are driving back to Los Angeles from Las Vegas when they come upon a mysterious stranger. After almost killing the stranger, they pick him up and begin their journey again — only to find that the road ahead is far bumpier than expected.

I know that it sounds pretty generic, a la every other ‘driving through the desert, picking up a stranger’ movie, but you have to love the noir feel that Jane has chosen for the film. The early word was that they intended for this movie to be released in 3D just like My Bloody Valentine 3D, but I suppose funding issues got in the way. Also starring Ron Perlman, Dark Country will now be released on DVD on September 3, 2009. It is sad to see, as we’ve been excited for this little thriller ever since its inception, but at least this film will be seeing the light of day — I know a few horror hounds here at Reject HQ who will certainly be picking it up come September 3.

Check out the first trailer via the video player below.
