Watch: First Crazy Trailer for Trapped-Inside-a-Car Thriller 'Detour'
What would you do to survive? Gravitas Ventures has debuted the first trailer for another contained thriller called Detour, this time taking place almost entirely inside of a car. The story is simply about an "ad man" named Jackson, played by Neil Hopkins, whose car gets trapped in a rock/mudslide and he ends up stuck. Yea it's a lot like Buried or Devil (it even has a two-syllable one-word name), but inside of a car, and it looks like things get crazy. It looks like there's flashbacks, of course, which is where actress Brea Grant comes into play. As wild as this looks, I can't help but say I need to see it to find out what goes on, and how it ends.
Watch the first official trailer for William Dickerson's Detour, in high def from Apple:
Synopsis for Detour from Apple: On the road to a high-powered lunch meeting, smooth-talking ad man Jackson Alder (played by Neil Hopkins) is brainstorming his next big pitch when he is blindsided by Mother Nature. Swallowed up by a devastating mudslide, he awakens to darkness. Alone underneath an avalanche of mud, his certainty of rescue gives way to a horrifying reality—no one is coming. With oxygen and time running out, Jackson clings to the unfinished life he left behind. Pushing himself beyond his own physical and mental boundaries, Jackson must ask himself the ultimate question: What would you do to survive?
Detour is the feature directing debut of William Dickerson (Shadowbox), screenplay by Dickerson & Dwight Moody. Gravitas Ventures will release Detour in theaters and on iTunes starting March 29th next month.
