Japanese director Takashi Shimizu is probably best known to casual movie goers as the director of The Grudge and its sequel, and he’ll be once again exploring the wrath of the supernatural in 7500.

The trailer for the film attempts to give us all one more reason to hate airline travel, as ghosts now seem to travel in first-class style (coach only when they have to).

Check out the trailer for 7500, which features a plethora of young actors and familiar faces, including True Blood star Ryan Kwanten, Iron Man‘s Leslie Bibb, Crank‘s Amy Smart, Entourage‘s Jerry Ferrara, Scout Taylor-Compton (Halloween), and Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch):

The idea of ghosts being on a plane is different, to say the least – but it’s also a concept that script writer Craig Rosenberg better explain quickly and effectively in the film, otherwise, the whole premise is going to unravel pretty quickly.

While I personally enjoyed The Grudge (and even its sequel) it’s clear that not everyone is a fan of his idea of a ghost story. At this point though, I’m willing to try anything that is different from the now done-to-death haunted house yarn. If the film does its job effectively, airplanes will get scary for a whole new reason.

7500 will be in theaters on August 31, 2012
