The new trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ Buried is another instance (like The Company Men, in the previous post) where a studio is once again trying to make a low-budget indie film a little more palatable to mainstream audiences. Not an easy task for a movie filmed entirely inside a coffin buried six feet under the ground. How do you work around that? Flashy images and audio-only, of course.
Still, I am so all over this movie. It’s too bad that Reynolds’ doesn’t have that Green Lantern ring with him, though. He’d turn that dirt into cotton candy and eat his way out of the ground.
