Exclusive Debut: First Teaser Poster for Ryan Reynolds' Buried

April 26, 2010


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).

Buried Teaser Poster

As mentioned on the poster, Lionsgate has also launched the official website:

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.

    I can't believe this movie was executed so well. I thought for sure I was walking into a gimmick, but still knew I had to see it... I was definitely wrong about the gimmick part, and was surprised at how engaging the film was from start to end. I was also pleased that they stuck to the script, and hope that there are no alterations when released theatrically. Awesome Poster.

    Calling Oscar noms now. Best Actor = Reynolds; Best Original Screenplay = Sparling; Best Director = Cortes. Maybe even a chance at Best Picture for the film, but that might be a long shot.

    damn,, so emo right now all of a sudden
  • kLO
    Looks crap. For gods sake, why would anyone want to watch Ryan Reynolds in a coffin for 2 hours?
  • ryderup
    Cool. Wiould been more effective though if you could tell the coffin is underground.
  • RC
    Cool poster, but why does he have a lighter on? That's a terrible idea.
  • Nailed it!
  • Cineprog
    This is a good poster for Buried there isn't a lot in it but that why its so good it gives the feeling that he is all alone and scared for is own life.
  • Hattori Hanzo
    No doubt they are trying to find a way to justify doing this in 3D ...

    @10: The typeface fits actually, there is nothing outside of the coffin, nothing but darkness so they would need a typeface that fits that theme, very minimalistic. If they used an eye catching typeface it would have drawn my eye and completely ruined what they were trying to do with the poster. Eyes on coffin first, then the mass of black space and THEN the website. Love it. It just makes me feel... closed in, can't help but stare at Reynolds and that makes the blackness even deeper.
  • Now this is what I call an incredibly effective use of negative space!
  • Aimee
    wow... this poster was excellent. lol
  • dRailer

  • AgentMcQueen
