Buried has a simple premise: Being buried alive would suck. Being buried alive in Iraq would be even suckier.
Debuted at Sundance ’10 and picked up by Lionsgate for a fall release, Buried follows a U.S. civilian (Ryan Reynolds) who is buried in the Iraqi desert after his contractor outfit is attacked. Word is, the film mostly takes place in the box, but is loaded with twists and turns– which should make both claustrophobic and twistaphobic audiences all kinds of queasy.
Check out the trailer below which, incidentally, must hold some kind of record for the least expensive (but nonetheless, effective!) trailer ever made.
