Earlier in the month we featured an international red band trailer for Chloe, the new film from director Atom Egoyan starring Amanda Seyfreid, Julianne Moore, and Liam Neeson. Now Sony Pictures Classics has released an official green band trailer that is decidedly less European; that is to say, it features nearly all the same scenes but none of the nudity. From the very tense footage on display, Chloe looks to be an escalating cat-and-mouse thriller infused with lust and betrayal a la Fatal Attraction. Seyfreid seems perfect for her assigned role of seductress, given her uniquely lovely features, while Moore and Neeson are sure to bring gravitas to their potentially melodramatic roles. More after the jump:
I am particularly interested in the shot that concludes the trailer, featuring Seyfreid looking directly into the camera. In Egoyan’s 1999 film Felicia’s Journey, there is a memorable sequence where star Bob Hoskins likewise stares into the lens. Sure enough, Journey features Hoskins breaking the fourth wall as one of the final scenes of its own trailer. I’m not smart enough to know what that means cinematically (something about voyeurism?), but it’s certainly an interesting motif from the Armenian-Canadian Egoyan that perhaps one of you wonderful commenters could enlighten for me.
Check out the official green band trailer for Chloe, and compare it to the aforementioned trailer for Felicia’s Journey after the jump. Chloe is slated to hit theaters on March 19th, 2010.
