“Buried” Teaser Trailer: Ryan Reynolds in a Coffin

30 Apr 2010

The thriller “Buried,” which sparked a ferocious bidding war after its Sundance 2010 premiere, has unleashed its first trailer.

Directed by Spain’s Rodrigo Cortés, the film stars Ryan Reynolds, Robert Paterson, Samantha Mathis and Stephen Tobolowsky. The premise is risky, but also potentially electrifying:

The film follows Paul (Ryan Reynolds) 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.

I’ve read the script, and from the way it plays out on paper, I was already on the edge of my (love)seat. The entire film takes place in the coffin, but to imagine such a situation in the first place already makes for nerve-wracking drama.

Here’s to hoping that Reynolds has the acting chops to pull audiences in. With the supporting talent of characters actors like Stephen Tobolowsky (Sammy Jenkis of “Memento”) involved, I have great confidence. Reviews from Sundance have been more than enthusiastic – many highlighting it as one of the exceptional films of the festival – so I’ll be sure to check it out.

“Buried,” which was ultimately picked up by Lionsgate, will enjoy a limited release on September 24, 2010 with a wide release on October 8, 2010. See the trailer below:
