Sleepless Trailer

"You touch my son, I'll kill you." Open Road Films has unveiled the first full trailer for an action film titled Sleepless, the American remake of one of my favorite French films titled Sleepless Night. The original film is set almost entirely inside a nightclub in Paris, with some sleek action cinematography. This new one stars Jamie Foxx as an angry father who goes into a nightclub to search for his kidnapped son. The cast features Michelle Monaghan, David Harbour, Dermot Mulroney, Gabrielle Union, Scoot McNairy, T.I. and Sala Baker. There's plenty of violence in this, with guns galore and much more. I'm still partial to the original film, but this doesn't look so bad. Not sure if it'll be set entirely in the club, but Foxx looks wicked.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Baran bo Odar's Sleepless, direct from YouTube:

Sleepless Poster

A cop with a connection to the criminal underworld scours a nightclub in search of his kidnapped son. Based on the 2011 French film Nuit Blanche, also known as Sleepless Night. Sleepless is directed by Swiss filmmaker Baran bo Odar, of the films The Silence and Who Am I previously. The screenplay is written by Andrea Berloff (Blood Father, Straight Outta Compton), based on the original 2011 film written by Frédéric Jardin & Nicolas Saada. Open Road Films will release Sleepless in theaters starting February 24th, 2017 early next year. Stay tuned for more footage, and watch the original French film. Who wants to see this one?

        Remember Collateral? That shit was so good.
        • Not bad. Wish they cast someone else to give the character more depth on the psychological level.
    This looks quite good. // One of Foxx's best films is the little known, often disregarded LAW ABIDING CITIZEN.

    That poster is LAZY. It's a direct ripoff of the following Denzel movies: Out of Time, Training Day and Man on Fire. That photoshopped badge is shite too. I like Jamie Foxx though, solid actor, but I feel like he's above this. I'll watch it on Redbox/Cable....
    • Exactly, why spend the extra cash and spring for Denzel? Is he, supposedly, too old?

    Good production. Watchable cast. Standard narrative. Definitely waiting cable ...
