Sundance 2010: Ryan Reynolds is Buried, And He Needs Our Help

By  · Published on January 21st, 2010

Saturday night will be the world’s first chance to see the Rodrigo Cortés directed film Buried, which is one of the more fascinating films of the 2010 Sundance line-up. In all likelihood, I will be there to see what happens when a crowd sees Ryan Reynolds, all alone in a box for the first time. It should be quite a treat. Or it will be an awful experience. Could go either way.

Until then, we have a new trailer and poster for the film, which you can see without being here in Park City. The prospect of such an ambitious, single character, single setting, claustrophobia-inducing is great. The risk is also sizable. The trailer below is simple and expository in a way that doesn’t allude to anything else about the movie. This man is trapped in a box, and he needs our help. We’ll see if we’re still willing to give said help after Saturday night.
