Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.31.08] movie trailer news thriller

Based on this trailer we just got our hands on I'd say it's a safe bet that Scottish director Richard Jobson's upcoming thriller, New Town Killers, will be a frenetically paced and twisted little chase film. To quote Cyberhal; "it looks well good."

Two private bankers, Alistair and Jamie, who have the world at their feet get their kicks from playing a 12 hour game of hunt, hide and seek with people from the margins of society. Their next target is Sean Macdonald a parentless teenager who lives with his sister on a housing estate on the outskirts of Edinburgh. She's in debt, he's going nowhere fast. Sean agrees to play for cash. He soon realizes he's walked into twelve hours of hell where survival is the name of the game.

New Town Killers is currently in post-production and is skedded to premiere in the UK sometime in 2009. It stars Dougray Scott (Hitman, tv's Jekyll & Hyde), Alastair Mackenzie, and ames Anthony Pearson (Control, Kidnapped).

Editor's Note: The producers of New Town Killers has asked us to take down the trailer. However, they've promised us a new one shorty.

Fking cool! Reminds me of a shitty vandamme movie's plot from the early 90'3 I saw when I was younger. But this looks cool.

looks pretty great - especially if there's a few extensive Parkour scenes. This seems like just the type of movie to have it.
I'm just sort of pissed that the trailer gave away a HUGE plot twist. seriously..WTF?
