New Trailer for VANISHING ON 7TH STREET

by     Posted 3 years, 298 days ago

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.

    Wise of them to show as less Hayden talking as possible, Leguizmo and Thandie are always a treat and look to be making up for him.

    I also liked the old trailer that didn’t have those lame ‘shadow people’, more mysterious and less cliche.

    Well, I won’t play follow the leader here. I think Hayden looks/sounds good in the trailer. It looks like something different from him. Why not give it a chance.

    I saw it on Torino Film Festival.
    It’s a really dark film…

    This movie will suck. How do I know? Did I see it already at a festival or something?
    No, I saw the cast and read the words “John Leguizamo”. I can’t name one movie he’s been in that did not suck. He’s like a banner waving over any project that reads “Now with 40% MORE SUCK!”.

      Rome + Juliet was good and he was in it. So there goes your theory.

        LOL. Oh you mean the Romeo+ Juliet that came out in 1996? So he was in a good movie 14 years ago that just happened to be based on one of the greatest plays ever written in the history of the English language. Well I sure stand corrected.

        Carlito’s Way, Ice Age, Land of the Dead, Moulin Rouge, Spun, Summer of Sam, Spawn, Die Hard 2.

        Leguizamo has been in a lot of great movies and he is a talented actor, always love to see him in new movies. His performance in Summer of Sam was amazing. I don’t know what crack you are on, hard to imagine a guy dissing on Leguizamo when Christensen is in the movie.

        The only really terrible movie he was in was the Super Mario Bros. movie which really was more funny than it was bad.

    I’m curious how hard it is to keep a light on at night? I mean, the whole world is your playground and you can’t find a couple of batteries and maybe a generator to get you through the nights? Talk about pathetic.

    This movie, if done right, could be fun in a way. But it can’t be taken seriously. I’m also curious why it is called on 7th street, doesn’t everybody in the world vanish ?

      I like Hayden Christiansen. Thought he looked good in the trailer and the movie seems good too. I’ll see it!
