New Buried teaser clips


21st January 2010

Ryan Reynolds is in a tight box. [Insert Scarlett Johansson joke here]

Here is a couple of new teaser clips for Buried, a film which almost entirely consists of Ryan Reynolds trapped in a coffin with only a mobile phone and a lighter to help him get out. Betcha MacGuyver could get out.

Here's the usual PR synopsis:

"Paul Conroy (Reynolds) is a US citizen working as a contract driver in Iraq. After a swift and sudden attack on his convoy, he awakens to find himself buried alive inside a coffin with nothing more than a lighter, a cell phone, and little memory of how he ended up there.

"Faced with limited oxygen and unlimited panic, Paul finds himself in a tension-filled race against time to escape this claustrophobic deathtrap before it's too late."
Gotta love that "unlimited panic" line. Makes you think we'll be watching an hour of Reynolds going "AAAARGHHH!" before a long drawn-out asphyxiation. We can but hope.

Otherwise, this film looks pretty much like Colin Farrell's Phone Booth set underground, just with lots of that irritating rotating camera work and, more than likely, a few never-saw-that-coming gimmicks added.

As it stands, the film intrigues me but I can just imagine that half the film will consist of endless shots of his phone battery running low. I could watch that now for free (*unplugs charger*) See?
