The first trailer has dropped for Gone, Heitor Dhalia‘s thriller about a young woman named Jill (Amanda Seyfried) who comes home to find that her sister Molly (Emily Wickersham) has mysteriously vanished. Jill is sure Molly’s been kidnapped by the same serial killer Jill escaped from two years prior, but the police aren’t convinced — so Jill takes matters into her own hands to rescue her sister.
It’s a standard-issue thriller premise, and there’s not much about the trailer that really sets Gone apart from dozens of similar movies. (The utterly forgettable, SEO-unfriendly title doesn’t help matters, either.) Still, there’s always the possibility it’ll wind up a satisfying if not especially imaginative take on the genre, and Seyfried usually makes for a compelling lead. Watch the trailer after the jump.

The J. Edgar casting train keeps on chugging. Clint Eastwood is in the midst of shooting his J. Edgar Hoover biopic, with Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role and Armie Hammer as Hoover’s colleague and reported lover Clyde Tolson, but more and more actors continue to fill out the cast. First Stephen Root was added, then Jeffrey Donovan (of Burn Notice fame) joined, and now Miles Fisher has made the list as well. Fisher probably won’t be familiar to many of you, but he was recently cast as one of the leads in Final Destination 5, and has also appeared in shows such as Mad Men and Gossip Girl. (Amusing side notes: He also played Tom Cruise in Superhero Movie, and starred in that Pinkberry: The Movie video that made rounds last summer.)
More on Fisher’s role after the break, along with a casting update for the Amanda Seyfried thriller Gone. Read More »
