I’d heard about Ryan Reynolds’ claustrophobic new thriller Buried and was rather put-off by it all, but now that I see the actual trailer, I can say that it truly looks horrifying. It’s pretty self-explanatory: Reynolds’ plays a man buried alive with ninety seconds minutes of oxygen, a lighter, and basically no way to get out. Squirming in full effect here, people. It’s a miracle I even got through the sixty seconds of this trailer.
If you’re feeling brave, take a looksie.

Wouldn’t the lighter burn up the oxygen?
If this plot line does not star Jack Bauer I want none of it.
I was thinking the same thing about the lighter… And I don’t know sh*t from apple butter when it comes to chemistry. Or physics. Or whatever.
I, too, thought the same thing. Maybe the writers should have consulted Bill Nye the Science Guy…
Or maybe there’s a work-around, like the scene in Thank You for Smoking where Rob Lowe discusses a movie with cigarettes in space. Just throw in a line like, “it’s a good thing I bought this non-oxygen-consuming lighter at 7-11 yesterday.”
That’s gonna be one short movie if he only has 90 seconds left!! 😛
Beatrix Kiddo had a flashlight and strong fingers.
HOLY – CRAP!~
Well, all I can say was (a) that trailer was effective, but (b) I’ve never liked a movie by Lion’s Gate. They should stick to work-out DVDs
Well, now after watching, I never realized before how much Ryan Reynolds reminds me of Jack on Lost. For a minute I thought he’d blurt out “WE HAVE TO GO BACK!” Then I realized it wasn’t Jack.
He lit his coffin on fire? What an idiot.
I was doubting that RR could pull off drama and carry the movie, but I’m glad he has.
I’ll be looking forward to this one.
You are dead wrong on this one. Saw it at Sundance and it was fantastic, stayed with me for days afterward. I was on the edge of my seat for the whole thing. Love your blog and sense of humor, but totally disagree on this one.
I only said it looked horrifying. I didn’t say it looked bad! I just, unfortunately, can’t do the whole buried alive thing. TOO MUCH.
I can’t even muster the mental fortitude to click the “play” button. Hy-per-vent-il-ate-ing.
