Watch: First Five Minutes of The Disappearance of Alice Creed

July 4, 2010

The Disappearance of Alice Creed

We normally don't condone the viewing of actual clips from movies because I believe they ruin scenes which are best experienced in theaters in the proper context of the movie. However, I'm making an exception today to feature the first five minutes of The Disappearance of Alice Creed, a British crime thriller about two guys who kidnap Alice Creed (played by Gemma Arterton). We featured the official trailer back in April and I gave the film a solid 7.5 out of 10 in my review from the Toronto Film Festival. It's a great film and these first five minutes are some of the best, setting an intense tone that should make you want to watch the rest.

Watch the first five minutes of J Blakeson's The Disappearance of Alice Creed:

Two men fortify a nondescript British apartment so it can serve as a prison, then kidnap a woman and tie her to a bed. Before there's even time to react, we're plunged into a nasty situation, but not a simple one.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed is written and directed by up-and-coming British filmmaker J Blakeson, who made his feature debut on this after a few shorts. It first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and also showed at the London Film Festival. Anchor Bay Films is distributing in the US. They'll be bringing The Disappearance of Alice Creed to limited US theaters and VOD starting on August 6th later in the summer. I highly suggest seeing this!

    I like the idea that they showed the work that went into the kidnapping before it actually happened. I have to finish it now.
  • Daniel Felts
    Yea I want more.

    Wow... kind of pissed I watched that because now I have to wait until Aug. 6th to see the rest.
  • Very good. Wonderful marketing, too. I wish more small films did this.
  • Brilliant. That was just enough to get me hooked in. I saw the trailer as well and it was equally tantalizing. I hate when trailers show you all of the money shots and you feel like you've watched the whole movie. This one just shows you A) She's kidnapped, B) They're idiots, and C) they picked the wrong girl to kidnap. :)

    Looks ok I guess. I liked it up until the part where they are choosing a bed and give a cheesy nod to one another. I could have done without that but all in all it looks pretty good.
