Watch: Eric Heisserer's 'Hours' Trailer Unveiled Starring Paul Walker
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?
