The Voices

"Sometimes I talk to my pets, and they sometimes talk to me." After debuting at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the twisted, dark comedy The Voices starring Ryan Reynolds is finally heading to limited theaters and VOD next month. The film follows a disturbed man who avoids taking his prescribed meds and ends up hearing some convincing arguments from his cat and dog to become a serial killer. It's just as weird as it sounds with our own Alex Billington saying, "I'm honestly not sure if I was amused and entertained or completely horrified watching it." Sounds like you'll just have to see this one for yourself. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for Marjane Satrapi's The Voices, originally from Entertainment Weekly:

Check out the teaser poster for The Voices from the Sundance Film Festival right here.

The Voices is directed by Marjane Satrapi (Perseopolis) and writer Michael Perry (Paranormal Activity 2, "The River"). This genre-bending tale centers around Jerry Hickfang (Ryan Reynolds), a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for attention from a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn, Jerry's evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog lead him down a fantastical path where he ultimately finds salvation. Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick and Jacki Weaver also star in the film which premiered at Sundance in 2014, and hits VOD and limited theaters on February 6th.

As I was watching, I kept thinking that this is me because I love my animals. I had no idea how wrong I was as the trailer continued. I love the morbid sense of humour in this .

i don't like ryan renolds in action movies ,he is not badass enough but in this kind of movies he is the perfect man! great trailer and got my attention!

ari smulders on Jan 8, 2015


he doesnt do serious action movies though. Blade 3, RIPD, Green Lantern. He's allowed to be his usual comedic self in all of them, not a great list of movies but ive enjoyed HIM in all of them.

Jon Odishaw on Jan 8, 2015


realy serious action movies he didn't but the movies you called i didn't like hime! Maybe its something personal, i don't like bryan cranston or shia lebeouf either but in fury he was awesome!

ari smulders on Jan 8, 2015


There are actors that a lot of people don't like and its completely understandable. Ryan Reynolds and Shia Lebeouf fit cozy on that list(im a big fan of both)

Jon Odishaw on Jan 8, 2015


That was unexpectedly awesome.
