For an intense thriller about a guy who is trapped in a coffin under ground by Iraqi terrorists, the full trailer for Rodrigo Cortes and Ryan Reynolds’s “Buried” is surprisingly slick. Makes me think there’s one of those “Gotcha!” twists at the end. Of course I could be wrong, but that’s just my sense.
Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is not ready to die. But when he wakes up 6 feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time— fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true.
Starring Ryan Reynolds, Robert Paterson, José Luis García Pérez, Stephen Tobolowsky, Samantha Mathis, Warner Loughlin, Ivana Miño, Erik Palladino, Heath Centazzo, Joe Guarneri, Anne Lockhart, and directed by Rodrigo Cortés.
