Fernando Meirelles' Blindness Teaser Trailer

The first teaser trailer for Fernando Meirelles' Blindness has finally debuted. I've been anxiously waiting for the first footage ever since I first heard about it back in 2006. My life was changed when I first saw Meirelles' City of God and since then I've been following him feverishly. While I wasn't really blown away by The Constant Gardener, I've been looking forward to Blindness quite a bit. Starring Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, and Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal, Blindness is about an epidemic of blindness that mysteriously overtakes a city. This trailer is definitely a solid tease to get us in the mood for more of what's to come.

Watch the teaser trailer for Fernando Meirelles' Blindness:

A doctor's wife becomes the only person with the ability to see in a town where everyone is struck with a mysterious case of sudden blindness. She feigns illness in order to take care of her husband as her surrounding community breaks down into chaos and disorder. I'm guessing there is a lot more to the story then what's written in that brief synopsis. However, I prefer to go into this completely blind and with as little knowledge as possible - I think there will be much more to take away from it going in that way.

Blindness is directed by legendary Brazilian filmmaker Fernando Meirelles of City of God and The Constant Gardener previously. The film is based on a novel by Nobel Prize winning author Jose Saramago with a script written by actor-writer Don McKellar, of Highway 61, Last Night, and The Red Violin. Blindness is currently set to open in theaters on September 19th.

  • I loved Cidade de Deus and the concept of Blindness sounds very promising so I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie!

    I'm guessing there is a lot more to the story then what's written in that brief synopsis. Confusing then for than.
  • E
    Actually, jro, nope ... not much else to it. The book was UTTERLY disturbing and really upsetting when everything breaks down ... On screen I would image it to be much much worse.
  • Melissa
    ooo. Now I have to decide if I want to pick up the book first- or wait for the movie. What do ya think E?
  • Christopher Goudos
    The novel is a disturbing look at the breakdown of society and the millions of things we are blind to everyday. Its awesome
  • Love Julianne Moore and this looks awesome.
  • Melissa: The book. Definitely the book. If the movie is even half as good, it's going to be a winner. But I always read the book before the movie.
  • Young
    the premise of the book & the film is captivating. I'd love to see how Moore and the director make this cinematic leap. I hope it's a great film.
  • Kevin
    Mark Ruffalo AND Sandra Oh in the same movie? This astoudingly powerful book has an even bigger handicap against becoming a good film then I would wish on even the worst storyline. Ugh.
