Watch: Early Sales Trailer for Virus Film 'Retreat' with Cillian Murphy
A world away from everything you know. An early promo trailer for a new thriller called Retreat has popped up online via Vlicious that I highly suggest watching as soon as you can. The film stars Cillian Murphy and Thandie Newton as a couple who head out to an island for some quiet time, only to find a man who wakes up claiming that a virus is sweeping across Europe. This is such a cool concept, kind of a reverse twist on 28 Days Later or even Night of the Living Dead, but it looks good. Jamie Bell, who you may recognize from King Kong or Jumper, plays the crazy guy. This does seem to show a lot, so watch out.
Watch the first promo trailer for Carl Tibbetts' Retreat:
Kate and Martin (Newton and Murphy) escape from personal tragedy to an Island Retreat. Cut off from the outside world, their attempts to recover are shattered when a Man (Bell) is washed ashore, with news of airborne killer disease that is sweeping throughout Europe. Produced by Gary Sinyor of Magnet Films.
Retreat is directed by first-time filmmaker Carl Tibbetts, from a screenplay co-written by Carl Tibbetts and Janice Hallett. This was produced by Ripple World and Magnet Films in the UK last year and was shot mostly in Wales. As far as we know, it doesn't have a US distributor and this is only an early sales trailer for it to find distributors soon. We'll keep you updated on its status and any release plans. Look interesting?
