The domestic trailer for Trust has gone online. It’s better than the promo trailer for the film since it moves away from the revenge-thriller angle and sets up the movie more as an emotional family drama. Unfortunately, it still feels a bit too much like a Dateline piece and at any moment Chris Hansen might come in and ask someone to take a seat. I’m holding out hope for the flick even though it received a lukewarm response when it played at the Toronto Film Festival.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Trust stars Clive Owen, Catherine Keener, Liana Liberato, Jason Clarke, and Viola Davis. It opens April 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Trust:
A suburban family is torn apart when 14-year-old Annie (Liana Liberato) meets her first boyfriend online. After months of communicating via online chat and phone, Annie discovers her friend is not who he originally claimed to be. Shocked into disbelief, her parents (Clive Owen and Catherine Keener) are shattered by their daughter’s actions and struggle to support her as she comes to terms with what has happened to her once innocent life.
