A movie that debuted right here on /Film just make it big. Aftershock, directed by Nicolás López, starring and produced by Eli Roth, was just acquired by Bob Weinstein’s Dimension Films at the Toronto International Film Festival. Based on Lopez’s experiences during the Chilean earthquake of 2010, the film centers on a group of friends who strive to survive after a massive earthquake hits Chile, freeing prisoners and unleashing other kinds of insanity.

Aftershock won’t premiere at TIFF until Tuesday September 11. The Weinsteins were confident enough in it, Lopez and Roth to not only purchase the film, but also take the rights to another Roth-produced horror film called Clown, based on a fake movie trailer. Learn more about both after the jump. Read More »

Eli Roth is making the earth move. The man behind the Hostel series, co-star of Inglourious Basterds and producer of The Last Exorcism has teamed up with successful Chilean filmmaker Nicolás López to make Aftershock, an English-language action-thriller inspired by the Chilean earthquake. It follows a group of six friends (including Roth, several international movie stars and a cameo by pop superstar Selena Gomez) struggling to survive after a massive earthquake hits their city and society crumbles around them. Most of the film will include realistic, practical effects.

Aftershock is still shooting in Chile but Lopez and Roth are ready to debut the first official images from the film exclusively here on /Film.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers?
