Reasonable Doubt

Despite the release date placement of this new thriller Reasonable Doubt, the presence of Dominic Cooper and Samuel L. Jackson actually have me giving it a second glance. The first trailer for the film makes it feel like a thriller that wouldn't be out of place in the 90s, as a District Attorney who thinks he's responsible for killing a man in a hit and run accident, inadvertently sets free the accused killer, thinking he's innocent. The only downside here is that the trailer seems to give away the whole movie, unless there's a twist that will save it. Still, this one looks better than most of the films coming to theaters early next year.

Here's the first trailer for Peter P. Croudins' Reasonable Doubt, originally from Yahoo:

Reasonable Doubt is directed by newcomer Peter P. Croudins and written by Peter A. Dowling (Flightplan). When up-and-coming District Attorney Mitch Brockden (Dominic Cooper) commits a fatal hit-and-run, he feels compelled to throw the case against the accused criminal who was found with the body and blamed for the crime.  Following the trial, Mitch’s worst fears come true when he realizes that he acquitted a guilty man, and he soon finds himself on the hunt for the killer before more victims pile up. Samuel L. Jackson and Gloria Reuben also star in the film which Lionsgate will send to theaters and VOD on January 17th.

  • Just in case you can't read or think, the trailer spells out the plot so you can avoid actually having to watch it.

      Geez, what's up with these trailer boys&gals these days. They somehow think they need to cover every plot-development in a 2 minute preview. This is how you make an audience not interested...
      • I think the film companies seem to believe that everyone is so stupid that they need to see the whole plot before they will go to watch a film. I have read peoples comments that on seeing a film where the trailer wasn't like the one above and the film had twists or turns that they were let down. Similarly, I used to design a lot of club flyers in the late 90's, it was quite free in the beginning, but eventually we basically had to make the information so big that there was no design left. this was because the club promoter also felt his crowd were too stupid to take in subtle design.

    Darn, they don't give away who get's hit by a bullet in the last 5 minutes, Cooper or Jackson. Now I have to watch the whole movie...

      Im so mad that you beat me to this comment. Well said sir.

        Thank You sir! And sorry for being first. But it's just the first thing that comes to mind when watching this trailer; al that is missing is "who-shot-who-in-the-last-5-minutes". And I'm afraid for the makers of this movie that that's the kind of question nobody is interested in...

          it honestly looks like a movie with no substance and a poorly executed story arc, so they are just targeting the people who dont really aim for that at the movies. just the shoot em up crap and the samuel l jackson B movies.
