‘The Signal’ Trailer

The Signal trailer

It’s not unusual for a Sundance movie to take a year or more to hit theaters, but we’re always pleased when the process doesn’t take quite so long. Especially when the film in question is as buzzed about as this one.

In advance of the movie’s June theatrical release, Sundance has released the first The Signal trailer. It’s an odd, riveting watch. Brenton Thwaites plays a college kid who’s apparently being interrogated by Laurence Fishburne about his contact with alien life, or something like that. It’s tough to say because the promo purposely keeps the premise mysterious. Watch it after the jump.

As you’d predict, it all goes terribly awry. Also as you’d predict, the film purports to be based on a true story. Hit the jump to see the first trailer.

There was a moment when Hollywood seemed to think that turning boardgames into movies was a brilliant idea, but so far we’ve heard about far more failures than successes. Battleship was a notorious disappointment (it did do better overseas than in the US), and after years of development Candyland, Monopoly, and Hungry Hungry Hippos have yet to get off the ground.

Nevertheless, Ouija is still determinedly chugging along, and now it even has the beginnings of a cast. Olivia Cooke (A&E’s Bates Motel), Douglas Smith (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), and Daren Kagasoff (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) have just boarded the picture, which is being produced by low-budget horror master Jason Blum. Get plot details and more after the jump.
