Buried new trailer New Trailer for Buried

Once all the explosive summer blockbusters have come and gone, we can look forward to some serious and up-close-and-personal movie fare to fill the Fall and Winter (read: films that are more likely to get Oscar attention). One of those is films is Buried, an upcoming psychological thriller starring Ryan Reynolds.

In case you couldn’t surmise from the title, Buried is about a man who gets buried alive. But if you want a bit more than that to get you interested, here’s the official synopsis:

“Paul is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.”

Now take a look at the awesome new trailer, which mixes the styles of Saul Bass (Vertigo, Psycho) with the panels of a comic book:

You can watch the trailer in HD over at Yahoo.

I’ve always dug films (get it?) that are set within just one location (12 Angry Men, Saw etc.) and it goes without saying that Buried takes that concept to the extreme. Films like Frank Darabont’s Buried Alive and Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol.2 featured scenes of someone buried alive, but as far as we know, Buried is set entirely within the coffin.

In that way the film falls pretty squarely on the shoulder’s of star Ryan Reynolds. He’s become known as the action star (Blade: Trinity and the upcoming Green Lantern), the good-looking jokester (Van Wilder, Two Guys and a Girl) and the hunky rom-com leading man (The Proposal). Buried is a completely different challenge for the actor, but I’m sure he’ll carry the film well.

  1. Reynolds was brilliant in two guys and a girl! it’s one of the funniest sitcoms i know of. im really looking forward to this movie though, it looks interesting :)

  2. I’m very excited. What a creative premise.

    • seriously neon tiger we dont really see creativity these days in movies. its sad too cuz there so many things you can do on film but this looks awesome as well as paranormal Activity 2.

  3. I’m a big fan of Reynolds, but i’m wondering if we’ll sit in the coffin with him for 2 hours and listen to his phone conversations or we’ll bounce back and forth between callers to see some action. Or this movie could just be one big mindfvck inside a coffin.

    • I honestly suspect the latter. It might sound like “How can they drag that out for a full movie?” but quite honestly I would rather they give it a go and fail than play it safe.

  4. This new trailer wasnt as exciting as the last…..

  5. I. Love. Ryan. Reynolds!
    In a totally, dudely way…

    And I am really intrigued by this film. It’s an interesting concept with one of my favorite actors in it.
