The trailer and Comic-Con poster have gone online for Charles de Lauzirika‘s psychological noir Crave. The film stars Josh Lawson as a crime scene photographer who begins to fall deeper into his dark fantasies about becoming a vigilante who can save the world from evil. Judging by the trailer, I like the contrast between Lawson’s gentle, everyman look (he comes off as a guy you could chill out with at a party), and the violent, aggressive character he’s portraying.
Crave will have a panel in Hall H tomorrow, July 11th with de Lauzirika and Lawson presenting the trailer along with an exclusive 7-minute clip from the movie. Attendees will also be getting the limited edition Comic-Con poster while supplies last. Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars Emma Lung, Edward Furlong, and Ron Perlman. Crave will world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal on July 24.

Here’s the synopsis via Crave‘s official Facebook page:
Aiden (Josh Lawson) craves a better life. A life away from his gruesome job as a crime scene photographer, working alongside his detective friend Pete (Ron Perlman). A meaningful life where he can escape the hard streets of Detroit, fall in love with the perfect woman and save the world from evil. As Aiden’s dark fantasies begin to invade his reality, he meets Virginia (Emma Lung), a younger woman with her own dilemmas and desires. Estranged from her deadbeat boyfriend Ravi (Edward Furlong,) Virginia explores an uncertain relationship with Aiden, who becomes increasingly emboldened to live out his vigilante fantasies. But as Virginia is faced with the disturbing truth about Aiden’s inner life, he unwittingly starts down a dangerous path blurring fantasy and reality into actions that could have devastating consequences for himself and everyone around him.
