New Trailer for VANISHING ON 7TH STREET

     December 6, 2010

Magnet has released a new trailer for Vanishing on 7th Street, with enough footage not found in the first to be worth a look.  Directed by Brad Anderson (The Machinist) follows a group of strangers who survived when “an unexplained blackout plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, and by the time the sun rises, only a few people remain.”  Hayden Christensen (Takers), John Leguizamo (Gamer),  Thandie Newton (2012), and newcomer Jacob Latimore star.

Hit the jump for the trailer and official synopsis.

Despite the generally unnerving on-screen presence of Christensen, the trailer almost had me.  I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic imagery, and the production design team has made the most of their budget.

Yet the shadows which chase and engulf our protagonists look kinda… lame.  Could totally be saved by a strong story.  We’ll see.

Vanishing on 7th Street is available as video on demand starting January 7, 2011, with a limited theatrical release slated for February 18th.  Click to Yahoo! Movies for HD.

An unexplained blackout plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, and by the time the sun rises, only a few people remain — surrounded by heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. A small handful of strangers that have survived the night each find their way to a rundown bar, whose gasoline-powered generator and stockpile of food and drink make it the last refuge in a deserted city. With daylight beginning to disappear completely and whispering shadows surrounding the survivors, they soon discover that the enemy is the darkness itself, and only the few remaining light sources can keep them safe. As time begins to run out for them, darkness closes in and they must face the ultimate terror.
