The biggest surprise of Nacho Vigalondo‘s latest film isn’t its unique visual language. It’s that the director of Timecrimes and Extraterrestrial is finally telling a story grounded in reality. After tackling time travel and apocalyptic love stories with his first two films, the filmmaker now brings us the computer thriller Open WindowsElijah Wood stars a super-fan of an actress played by Sasha Grey. When he’s given direct access to her computer, he finds himself positioned to try and save her life as a mysterious man prods him to push the access further.

A cool story to be sure but Vigalondo is rarely that simple. To give the film a Nacho twist, Open Windows is told in real time and totally through a computer screen. We’d previously seen a glimpse of what this might mean but now a first trailer for the thriller is out.

Thanks to Panda Security (via The Film Stage) for this trailer. It’s in English with Spanish subtitles.

There’s also a new poster for the film.

Somehow this film is not scheduled to play Fantastic Fest this year (Vigalondo and Wood are frequent attendees) but I imagine it might be a secret screening. Keep checking back for more on the film.
