Buried Trailer

Paul Conroy Isn't Ready To Die. We've seen a few official trailers for Rodrigo Cortés' Buried before today, but this new international trailer (via UK's The Sun) actually has some good footage in it. I think Lionsgate's trailers are very bold, but I liked that they didn't show much footage because there's only so much they can show without ruining it. As a quick recap, Buried is that one-man, buried alive, stuck in a coffin thriller that I raved about at Sundance. If you truly want to enjoy the experience, then don't watch this trailer. But if you still need a bit more to convince you it's worth seeing, there's just enough in here to do that. Check this out!

Watch the new international trailer for Rodrigo Cortés' Buried from YouTube:

If you haven't seen the original trailers, you can watch the full theatrical one or the "darker" teaser trailer.

A U.S. contractor working in Iraq awakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it's a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap. Buried is directed by Spanish filmmaker Rodrigo Cortés, of the films 15 Days, The Contestant, and Dirt Devil previously. The screenplay was written by first-time writer Chris Sparling. This was one of my favorite films from Sundance (read my review) and I can't wait for everyone to be able to experience it! Buried hits ALL theaters on October 8th.

Who has a cell that that gets that clear reception 6 feet underground?

Parker on Sep 2, 2010


^ Come on, all you people pick on is his cell reception. First off, he's not buried very deep (that's a key part of the plot, but not a spoiler in any way, don't worry). Secondly, if your cell phone can work beneath 100 stories of concrete inside of a skyscraper, I'm sure it can get a signal underneath a few layers of dirt. Thirdly, his lack of signal ALSO plays a key part in the script; the signal comes and goes, it's not "clear" the whole time!

#2 I was thinking the exact same thing...

This movie is taking on a Brokeback Mountain kind of feel. That movie was also shoved down our throats by the critic bandwagon to the point that potential fans of that movie rebelled and ignored it.

I'm gonna be so pissed if they changed the original ending!

SuicidalOptimist on Sep 2, 2010


I know what you mean Shauna, this movie is getting a lot of hype especially on this site. Avatar was hyped to death as well and look how disappointing that was. We'll soon see if it's as good as they say it is. Probably an amazingly well done movie, but like Brokeback, the premise of Buried just isn't doing much for me.

SuicidalOptimist they better not! or a riot will ensue!

In this trailer and the previous one, as soon as they mention a ransom of $5m, it makes me think this is some sort of scam/hustle. Or do I just have a vivid imagination?

A coffin caves in. Even a steel one at 6feet below, think it was on mythbusters they showed this. So Ryan is like 1 foot under in that shanty box. Why cant he break out? I can, I just get angry

David Banner on Sep 2, 2010


i would go crazy!!!!!! i'm closterphobic and i would kill my self if tht was me but i like it, looks okay dont want to get my hopes up.

Michael on Sep 2, 2010


everyone knows how you get out of his situation. ya say "ok Pai Mie.... here i come" *1 inch punch through coffin*

#12 haha Nice one... Well keep on guys, is a movie. Chill and relax, sometimes is okay to let go some sense like underground and reception. After all is a movie.

If this guy is with Verizon - he's certainly screwed.

tEDDY bESS on Sep 2, 2010


This is my favorite trailer yet!

Aaron on Sep 3, 2010


if he is with Verizon, can't all the people from the network just start digging? I mean--they do have the best network and all--so it should only take 1-3 minutes of digging with all of those helping hands. Perhaps this entire movie is actually just a cell phone add for Verizon? We all seem to be wondering how he gets cell reception while being buried, yet I have calls dropped while I'm in my building at work. Something isn't right. I just checked IMDB and Verizon is actually co-producing this with Lionsgate. If Ryan Reynolds had Sprint or T-Mobile, he'd truly be screwed. If that goofy Verizon guy shows up at the end of the movie after Ryan Reynolds escapes this predicament, I'm going to flip out...and yet applaud Verizon for employing such a creative advertising strategy. Just my thoughts....

The problem with this movie is that there are only one of two outcomes. He gets out of the coffin and lives. Or he dies. The few people that actually go watch this in the theater are going to get out of the theater and text their friends, "Yeah, jst saw buried, it sux. Dood's trapped in a coffin for like an hour, and then he dies. Totally gay."

john on Sep 4, 2010


I can't wait to see this movie besides that the movie is starring my favorite actor.

Fisherr on Sep 6, 2010


he should just ask the camera guy to let him out.

Ryan Reynolds in a box? Merry Christmas to me.

Anya on Sep 10, 2010


How does he have 911 in Iraq and get an English speaking operator?

Terry Myers on Sep 21, 2010


Ryan Reynolds is awesome. I agree with #20. If he dies, it definately sucks.

Nunya on Oct 9, 2010


You all are thinking too deeply about this. It's a movie made to entertain you. It doesn't have to all make sense!!
