Buried is about a man who is kidnapped in Iraq and buried alive in a coffin with a cell phone and a lighter. He is being held for ransom and the only way to get the money or be rescued is via the cell phone. This is basically a one man show with Ryan Reynolds at the helm. The teaser was very well done. Imagine watching that teaser in a dark movie theatre. It works. The second trailer that popped up today is not so good. It’s just images, lines from the movie, review snippets, and what I think are bars from a cell phone running through the trailer.
Buried was at the Sundance movie festival in January and will finally make its way to theatres with a limited release September 24, 2010 and a wider release October 8, 2010.
