The Oxford Murders Trailer Debut

Add this to the long list of "came from nowhere" movies that I didn't hear about until just recently and now have an interest in. Elijah Wood and John Hurt star in The Oxford Murders, a movie about a professor and a grad student that work together to try and stop a potential series of murders seemingly linked by mathematical symbols. It seems like some sort of odd combination of The Da Vinci Code and a horror movie. Whenever I hear John Hurt I can't get the first Hellboy out of my mind, his aged voice is what embodies that movie. Either way, this is a pretty interesting trailer to check out.
Watch the trailer for The Oxford Murders:
The Oxford Murders is written and directed by Spanish filmmaker Álex de la Iglesia, who directed The Day of the Beast, 800 Bullets, and The Perfect Crime previously. The film is based on the novel (Amazon.com) by Guillermo Martinez of the same name. The Oxford Murders arrives in theaters in the US courtesy of ThinkFilm at some point in 2008.
This looks quite fantastic. I saw the Spanish trailer a while back but I couldn't understand anything. This trailer grows in intensity and the music is great. I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for this one.

Looks good. Frodo gets some action.

Hey, this looks like it might be decent. I have this intuition about the climax of the film (not elijah's...lol) but I'll keep that hush-hush until I see for myself.

Did the scene where the man snarls at Elijah (01:27) remind anyone else of when Bilbo snarled at Frodo?
