Teaser trailer and clip from "Buried" starring Ryan Reynolds
The teaser is certainly intriguing, but the clip is worrisome. First, why is the coffin so damn big? If there's something bigger going on, then we'll just have to wait and see. The camera work (if all of it is like that) was getting on my nerves a little. 90 minutes of a spinning camera isn't something I want to sit through. The film will premiere at Sundance and has yet to find a distributor. I'm interested to see what the early response is like.
Synopsis: Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is a U.S. 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.
