Triangle Trailer

I don't get excited for that many horror movies, but this one has piqued my interest. Empire just debuted the trailer for Triangle, which is short for the Bermuda Triangle. It's a lost-at-sea psychological thriller that looks like it gets crazier as time goes on. It starts out with a group of people, including the beautiful Melissa George, sailing on a yacht on the open sea who get caught up in a major storm. Once they make it out, barely alive, they come across a cruise liner, but once aboard they discover that it's completely empty. From there things get really twisted. It looks like it could be pretty good, so check out the trailer below.

Watch the trailer for Christopher Smith's Triangle:

The story revolves around the passengers of a yachting trip in the Atlantic Ocean who, when struck by mysterious weather conditions, jump to another ship only to experience greater havoc on the open seas.

Triangle is both written and directed by British filmmaker Christopher Smith, of horror films Creep and Severance previously. This was made for a modest $18 million and was shot in Australia last summer. Icon Entertainment is selling the film but hasn't found a distributor for the US just yet. Hopefully we'll see this sometime later this year, at least on DVD or otherwise. I'm looking forward to see it no matter what.

Meh dont know need a better trailer...reminds me a bit of a stephen king movie I saw on TV once with the abandoned cruise liner.

Right about one thing, "everything you see you have seen before" Seriously Alex, go take a week off and catch up on some movies and see how many times this has been done. Exciting? Thrilling? Twisted!?! About as Twisted as an M Night movie.

This IS pretty intriguing! This looks to be a cut above the standard horror flick! I'm there!

"When I have a bad dream, I close my eyes and thin of somthing nice." Aren't your eyes already closed when your having a bad dream?

looks worth a "rent".

Sancho on Jul 16, 2009


#6 people still rent?

ocp on Jul 16, 2009


pretty much the usual horror-standard-flick

leiner on Jul 16, 2009


Wasn't there an X-Files episode about this?

OG on Jul 16, 2009


The whole starting over thing reminds me of Hypercube.. but I very much doubt the reason it is happening on the Cruiser is the same as in the Cube

Bob on Jul 16, 2009

PJH on Jul 16, 2009


the trailer addict version is muuuuuuch better.

DLM Entertainment on Jul 16, 2009


The trailer addict version does get a lot better until it starts to give too much of the ending away

Shelby on Jul 16, 2009


i bet it's all a dream in the end hahhahahahahhahahahaha

wm on Jul 16, 2009


i bet it has to do with Aliens! anyways the trailer was pretty bad, didn't seem like they knew where they wanted to go with it. and it seemed like they just threw it together. ill still see the movie though, looks kinda badass i guess

DoomCanoe on Jul 16, 2009


Gotta say the 3 minute one that PJH posted is 10 times better I actually want to see it after watching that one.

Cody on Jul 16, 2009


This trailer is full of spoilers, but better than the last one, which shows nearly everything. And it looks too simililar to great spanish movie Timecrimes, but with changed exteriers.

xMort on Jul 16, 2009


Everything I saw I have seen before. Haunting.

MK-Ultra on Jul 16, 2009


sigh ugh fail

:( on Jul 16, 2009


Everything I saw I have seen before...Final Destination???

zth on Jul 17, 2009


Oh yeah, the Trailer Addict version was much better. WTF was with a flipping car though? I thought this was a movie at sea. Anyway, I usually hate horror movies but I'll be looking forward to this one.

Ariel on Jul 17, 2009


did anyone else think that the mask looked like the Scarecrow mask from Batman? Mas Puto!

that guy on Jul 17, 2009


Groundhog Day 2: The Triangle

Colin on Jul 17, 2009


Timecrimes on a Boat Everything you've seen before. How true. Also, looks exactly like the layout on the X-Files boat.

Greedo on Jul 17, 2009


#30 Haha, I was just about to say the same. Wasn't there a haunted cruise boat movie a while ago? Ghostship or something? Because that's what this reminded me off. Oh, but this one has Scarecrow in it, nowai! OMG! <..>

SuicidalOptimist on Jul 17, 2009


The VO turned me off, cause that's the same one from the Sci-Fi (now Syfy, lame!) channel.

Lar on Jul 17, 2009


This looks like Vantage Point meets Ghost Ship meets The Strangers, with a little more crap thrown in. I know you seem intrigued Alex, but I am not by what.

Big Red Moose on Jul 17, 2009


@23 and 30 exactly what I was thinking. still, I'll check it out either matinee or rental.

Tether on Jul 17, 2009


one thing we know for certain. it can't be as bad as transformers 2, right?

L1A on Jul 17, 2009


that three minute traileraddicts trailer is MUCH better, i'm definitely interested in this one

Jon on Jul 17, 2009


watch Time Crimes. it just repeats over and over again. >____> dude, i even bet that the person in the mask is her. or something.

Fc on Jul 18, 2009


Reminded me of a funny and artistic X-Files episode... with Nazis and Bermuda's triangle.

FlaWiio on Jul 18, 2009


she'll wake up, realize it was a dream. exactly. till she realizes that she's still on the same boat traileraddict trailer was pretty nice tho. cept for that random car flipping. -.-

lego on Jul 18, 2009


Reminds me of mathematician Terence Tao's thought experiment where Lara Croft stacks the corpes of her copies in order to reach a certain switch.

AprilCoolsDay on Jul 19, 2009


that was "timecrimes" on a boat all the way
