Movie Trailer: Buried

When Lionsgate released the first teaser trailer for the Ryan Reynolds one-man thriller Buried in April, some people complained that it didn’t show much. But others argued that it was the perfect tease, a great example of a good teaser trailer. Lionsgate has just released the full length trailer for the film, and it doesn’t show a second of footage from the film.

Why is Lionsgate so scared of showing moviegoers footage from the movie? Are they afraid that once they realize that the whole film takes place in a coffin buried underneath the ground, that they won’t buy a ticket? They have instead constructed a trailer using soundbites from the movie, on top of images that appear to be strung together by one of those guys who puts together the title sequences for television shows.

You might remember that the independent film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to critical and audience acclaim, sparking a multi-studio bidding war. The story follows a private contractor who is kidnapped in Iraq and buried alive. He has 90 minutes of air left until he dies, and has access to only a phone and a lighter. The entire movie takes place in the coffin, with Ryan Reynolds providing the only on screen performance. I attended the film’s premiere at Sundance and was blown away (you can read my review here).

Watch the trailer embedded after the jump, and please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Official Teaser Trailer: Buried

Lionsgate has released the first teaser trailer for the Ryan Reynolds one-man thriller Buried. You might remember that the independent film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to critical and audience acclaim, sparking a multi-studio bidding war.

The trailer is a cool tease of the concept, especially for anyone who hasn’t heard of the film thus far. I know I was heavily critical of Lionsgate’s marketing campaign for Kick-Ass, but this trailer and the previously released teaser poster show that the studio knows how to market horror/genre films. Hey, I’ve always been impressed by the posters for the Saw franchise. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump, and please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Buried

We have a bunch of cool new movie posters today, including Lionsgate’s first teaser poster for Buried (one of my favorite movies of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival), an international poster for Get Him To The Greek, four international character posters for The A-Team, and another cool international one-sheet for Toy Story 3. I really love the minimalism of the buried teaser poster, although I believe they should have done without the stupid website url and actually have included the title of the film. Check out all the posters now, after the jump.
