Marina Antunes [Film Festival 08.18.10] post apocalyptic movie trailer news scifi drama



Aside from Aronofsky’s Black Swan (trailer), one of the other films premiering at TIFF that I’m pinning at the bit to see is Brad Anderson’s Vanishing on 7th Street.

A PA styled thriller about a global blackout that causes huge chunks of the population to simply vanish, Vanishing sounded (and looked) like the kind of film we sometimes wait entire years to see. Now that a trailer for the film has appeared I’m still excited to see it but I’m also a little concerned.

Yes, even through the grain of this low quality trailer it’s clear that Anderson’s film looks fantastic but I’m worried about Hayden Christensen who has managed a couple of decent performances in his short career but who seems to be reaching a little too far as the lead here. I’m hopeful his performance isn’t this bombastic throughout the entire film.

Trailer, via STYD, after the break.

This looks like a great 'last man on earth' flick.

I like the horror angle that seems to come out of nowhere, but I hope the hook is unique enough that it doesn't just end up being a cheap scare tactic. Based on the clip of Thandie looking at the baby pram, I'm guessing it's an alien psychology test of some kind. Guess we'll see.

How long can planes stay in flight without a pilot? Seems like the vanishing itself only happened minutes before he went outside.

I'm looking forward to this and all, but am I the only one who thinks that is some seriously cheesy CGI?

Couldn't agree more, Hayden Christensen sucks as an actor. Must be a nice guy or something but he's painful to watch. I've never seen anything that I thought he was good in. Bummed Brad Anderson picked him. PS. I read this script about two years ago and the trailer looks true to the script.

Looks like the comic "The Light" where light from the power grid kills people.
