Lionsgate has just released a new teaser trailer for Buried and it’s a great one. You might have heard about Buried earlier this year during the Sundance Film Festival. That’s because the film was one of the most talked about during the festival due to some good word of mouth and its unique premise. If you haven’t heard it, it’s basically “Ryan Reynolds trapped in a underground coffin in Iraq for 90 minutes.” The teaser trailer does a great job of setting that premise up and making sure that you are left wanting more. In other words, it does exactly what a teaser trailer should do. You can check it out after the jump and you can also click here to read Steve’s thoughts on the film.
Buried opens in select theaters September 24th and nationwide October 8th.

If you want to know a bit more about the film, here’s the synopsis.
“Paul Conroy is not ready to die.
But when he wakes up 6 feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time- fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true.”
