Brad Anderson's Vanishing on 7th Street

I forgot this was even being made! Our friends at Quiet Earth somehow got their hands on a few low quality photos from the upcoming apocalyptic thriller Vanishing on 7th Street directed by Brad Anderson, of The Machinist and Transsiberian previously. Now that I'm reminded that it exists, I do actually remember writing about the casting news last year because it sounded like an awesome concept. Set in a once-thriving city where shadowy forms have caused residents to simply vanish, leaving only their clothes and possessions behind, a small handful of survivors band together in a dimly-lit tavern on 7th Street, struggling to survive.

Brad Anderson's Vanishing on 7th Street

Originally, Vanishing on 7th Street is described as more of a psychological thriller about these five survivors who are fighting to stay alive "while grappling with the meaning of existence," since they realize they may in fact be the last people on earth. Sounds like a Stephen King-inspired thriller about some people trapped in this one location, which reminds me a bit of The Mist. I hope this is much better than that film (I didn't love it), but with Brad Anderson directing, I don't think we have to worry. Vanishing on 7th Street stars Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo, but doesn't have a US distributor or release date.

  • dexter
    I'm huge fan of The Machinist and really enjoyed Transsiberian too. So, I'm gonna give this a chance. I wish there's a trailer.
  • splinter
    u didnt like "The Mist"???u poor thing...
  • Ian Kuah
    agreed splinter, i personally loved The Mist. This one sounds interesting as well.
  • ItsME
    #5 and #6 agreed. The Mist was a great movie.
  • The Mist was a fantastic "trapped in a closed space apocalyptic ensemble film"...I really enjoyed it. I love the Machinist, but Transsiberian was just okay so I'm on the fence about this one, but I can't wait to see a trailer.
  • Sharlto
    thats a terribly cliche scene for the top pic
  • vold
    The Mist was one of the best movies i've ever seen. The ending is one of the best ever. If this is even half as good it will still be awesome.
  • Dave Lister, J.M.C.
    I agree with #3, the top pic looks way too much like The Happening; and that association can only hurt. Add to that the fact that Hayden Christensen is in it and this film is on strike two before it's out of the gate.

    How is this different from the tons of other movies with the same concept. Eh I'll pass.
    Sounds more like THE LANGOLIERS, than the Mist.
  • The mist a good movie.. i like it..but this one..i dunno..maybe i will see it.. but just dvd disc..not at the movie theaters
  • Brett
    Night of the Comet.
  • chris c
    the mist was great.
  • seanathan
    13 stole the words out of my mouth- totally a langoliers feel!!! gotta wait for the trailer on this one- hayden always worries me, and those pics make him look like he's playing a whiny bitch again.
  • Loser
    The Mist felt like a really crappy 80`s tv-movie to me, very bad.
  • Derek Carter
    i'm pretty sure thats a screen shot from the happening.......... this next decade is going to be the decade of the recut.......... studios will just pay a new editor to recut the film and give it a different twist.......... sigh.

    lol @17

    The plot sounds kinda cool...not loving the cast though. Leguizamo is just annoying, and I think we can all agree that Hayden just stinks up the screen.
