New THE LOFT Trailer Takes Karl Urban and Wentworth Miller to the Height of Paranoia

by     Posted 9 days ago


We saw the first trailer for The Loft more than two years ago, and now the film will finally see the light of day. Open Road Films has acquired The Loft from Universal and just released a new trailer and poster. The film stars Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, and Matthias Shoenaerts as five married friends who share a secret penthouse where they can cheat on their wives and indulge in whatever fantasies they chose without leaving a paper trail.  Their party train quickly derails when they find the body of a dead woman in the loft and fall to paranoia as everyone begins to suspect one another.

The movie looks like it could be trashy fun, but none of the characters come across as particularly likeable, just a bunch of entitled dudes cheating on their wives.  It’s hard not to like Urban and Marsden though, so maybe the casting will make up for the off-putting nature of the characters. The film also stars Isabel Lucas, Rhona Mitra, and Rachael Taylor and opens in theaters January 23, 2015. Check out the first The Loft trailer after the jump.

Red-Band Trailer for THE LOFT Starring Karl Urban, James Marsden, Eric Stonestreet, and Rhona Mitra

A red-band trailer has gone online for the thriller The Loft.  The film centers on five friends who have a loft where they can go to cheat on their wives.  Their perfect locale hits a bit of a snag when they find a woman brutally murdered in the loft, and they don’t know who’s responsible.  I first thought that this would be a claustrophobic film where the five friends would be turning on each other since they each have a key to the loft.  Instead, they start suspecting their wives to be jealous murderous who discovered their husbands’ secret.  It’s an odd approach, although it makes sense since the guys seems sleazy enough to distrust the woman they’ve wronged rather than the dishonest guys in their company.  The only question is whether or not we’ll care what happens to the five adulterers, and if we’d rather see them get their comeuppance than solve the mystery.

Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer.  The impressive cast features Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, Rachael Taylor, Rhona Mitra, Valerie Cruz, and Isabel Lucas.  The film currently has no release date.
