We're proud to exclusively debut this first official teaser poster for Rodrigo Cortés' Buried starring Ryan Reynolds and only Ryan Reynolds trapped inside of a coffin, buried alive, in the middle of the desert. After its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Lionsgate bought Buried and is bringing it to theaters in October. This is their first official teaser poster for the movie and they've decided to take a very bold step in marketing by showing nothing but Reynolds buried alive and that's it. I actually think it's a gorgeous poster that's very striking. It's a good way to introduce audiences to the film (especially if they've never heard of it).

As mentioned on the poster, Lionsgate has also launched the official website: ExperienceBuried.com.
Buried is directed by Spanish filmmaker Rodrigo Cortés, of films 15 Days, The Contestant, and Dirt Devil. The script was written by first-time writer Chris Sparling. This was one of my favorite films from Sundance (read my review) and I can't wait for everyone else to be able to experience, too! Buried arrives in October.
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.
