Despite the fact that Eli Roth is all over this trailer for “Aftershock” (onscreen and in the credits), the film is actually directed by one Nicolás López. The trailer is SFW, but I get the feeling there’s a Red Band version coming along very soon. The film looks like a schlocky good time, with a bunch of clueless American tourists (are there any other kind?) getting stuck in a nightclub during an earth quake. Bad, right? Well, it gets worst when the prison next door also dumps its prisoners onto the streets. Uh oh.
But hey, these kids are Americans, with American know-how, and plus, they have Eli Roth. I’m sure they’ll make it. (Probably.)
In Chile, a group of travelers who are in an underground nightclub when a massive earthquake hits quickly learn that reaching the surface is just the beginning of their nightmare.
Starring Eli Roth, Andrea Osvárt, Ariel Levy, Nicolás Martínez, Lorenza Izzo, Natasha Yarovenko, and Selena Gomez.
No word on a release date yet, but you’re probably not looking at something that’s going to hit theaters. Or if it does, don’t expect to see it at a mall cinema near you.
