Eric Heisserer’s “Hours”, starring Paul Walker and Genesis Rodriguez, previously played at the South By Southwest festival. It’s currently being scheduled to open theatrically in December, though how big that release will be is the real question. Hopefully it’ll be bigger than Walker’s last movie, “Vehicle 19”. Yeah, you didn’t see that movie either, huh? Well, it was mostly a VOD/DVD title, so don’t blame yourself if you didn’t know it existed.
Here’s a new trailer for “Hours”. It’s similar to the SXSW one, with some new footage. Paul Walker is still battling Hurricane Katrina and looters.
Before sunrise on August 29, 2005 Nolan (Paul Walker) arrives at a New Orleans hospital with his pregnant wife Abigail (Genesis Rodriguez) who has gone into early labor. What should be one of the happiest days of Nolan’s life quickly spirals out of control when the birth goes tragically wrong and Hurricane Katrina ravages the hospital, forcing an evacuation. Told to stay with his child, who is on a ventilator, Nolan and his newborn are soon cut off from the world by power outages and rising flood waters. When no one returns to help, Nolan faces one life-and-death decision after another, fighting to keep his daughter alive, as minute by agonizing minute passes, becoming unimaginable “Hours”.
Starring Paul Walker, Genesis Rodriguez, Christopher Matthew Cook, Judd Lormand, Nick Gomez, and Kerry Cahill.
Opening December 13th.
