Paul Walker in Hours

Choose to fight. The Safran Company has debuted a trailer for the first film directed by screenwriter-turned-filmmaker Eric Heisserer, called Hours, starring Paul Walker in an interesting situation. The setting is during Hurricane Katrina, and Walker is stuck in a flooded hospital trying to keep his premature newborn alive by hand-cranking a battery for a machine the keeps it breathing. It plays better than it sounds, there's plenty of great tension, it has a tinge of The Impossible meets 127 Hours, but with a Katrina setting. It's premiering at the SXSW Film Festival coming up in March, and I expect it to get a lot of buzz. Check it out!

Watch the first official trailer for Eric Heisserer's first film Hours, via ENTV's YouTube:

Set mostly in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Hours is the story of a man (Paul Walker) who battles looters, the elements and exhaustion for two days in a hospital while his newborn daughter clings to life inside a ventilator powered only by a manual crank. The film is premiering at the SXSW Film Fest.

Hours is written and directed by first-time director and screenwriter Eric Heisserer, credited for writing on scripts for A Nightmare on Elm Street, Final Destination 5 and The Thing previously. We expect to hear reviews and more from SXSW in Austin, once it premieres in March. We'll keep an eye out. Looking good?

    Interesting cover of "In the house, in a heartbeat." I'm in...this actually looks decent. I'm a Walker fan.

    Actually looks pretty damn good, Im impressed. Of course its all on the shoulders of Walker...not sure he can carry a movie by himself.

    Ugh, this looks really good, but ever since having my baby I cannot handle seeing children in distress anymore. I -am- gonna watch it, but it's gonna be preeeetty rough, I think.

    Can Paul Walker pull this off? I mean the guy has the emotional expression range of ... Channing Tatum.
