John Cusack Holds Elijah Wood Hostage in First 'Grand Piano' Trailer
After premiering at Fantastic Fest this year (check out a review from Jeremy Kirk), the thriller Grand Piano is coming to theaters next spring (and VOD earlier in the year). Elijah Wood plays a concert pianist attempting a comeback after a career-crippling performance in his past. The pressure is already on, but then things get even more stressful as he finds a note scrawled in his sheet music saying he will be killed if he plays one wrong note. It's basically Phone Booth at a piano but with John Cusack on the other end of the threats this time. Our review says calls it a "stylish, quirky thriller that never hits too heavily." Watch now!
Here's the first trailer for Eugenio Mira's Grand Piano, originally from Apple:
Grand Piano is directed by Eugenio Mira (Agnosia) and written by Damien Chazelle (The Last Exorcism Part II). Tom Selznick, the most talented pianist of his generation, stopped performing in public because of his stage fright. Years after a catastrophic performance, he reappears in public in a long-awaited concert in Chicago, but Tom finds a message written on his score: “Play one wrong note and you die.” Without leaving the piano, Tom must discover the anonymous sniper’s motives and look for help without anyone realizing. Magnolia Pictures releases the film to iTunes on January 30th and limited theaters on March 7th, 2014.
