Here’s the first trailer for Open Windows which will be on theaters and VOD on September 29th, via thefilmstage.com:
After taking us on time-travel adventures in Timecrimes and exploring sci-fi comedy with Extraterrestrial, director Nacho Vigalondo‘s latest film takes a unique approach to the thriller territory. Open Windows follows Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey as the latter has been captured by a villain named Chord (Neil Maskell), and the film takes place entirely on a computer screen or various cameras.
We recently caught it at Fantasia, saying in our review, “One of the many films to open with the misdirection of a movie within a movie, Open Windows actually earns it, even if the effort it expends in doing so makes no effort in really separating the layers of cinema fantasy. Because while festival programming guides will like to label it as an update of the Hitchcock-De Palma voyeuristic thriller, Open Windows is, if anything, far more like a Feuillade serial: one cliff-hanger after another — which is perhaps why the film runs 100 minutes, instead of the usual gimmick film’s 80 — including criminal underworlds, wild plot twists, and shifting identities.”
The first U.S. trailer has now landed ahead of a fall debut, and one can see it below:
Jill, the most exciting actress of the moment, refuses to have dinner with Nick, a fan who won a date with her in an Internet contest organized by the distributor of her latest film. In return, a guy named Chord, posing as Jill’s campaign manager, help Nick to follow in the footsteps of the actress from his own computer. Nick starts a game in which he realizes that is only a puppet into the manic plans devised by Chord, to hunt down the star.
