Stay in the light. When we noticed there was a nifty new poster for Brad Anderson's creepy post-apocalyptic thriller Vanishing on 7th Street, I knew there would more to come, and here it is. Yahoo has debuted the first trailer for the film, starring Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo and Jacob Latimore as a group of survivors of a mysterious mass disappearance. There's some creepy weird darkness that has spread across the city and after a power outage, causes most of the population to disappear. I first saw this in Toronto (review here) and enjoyed it but didn't totally love it. Check out the official trailer below.
Watch the official trailer for Brad Anderson's Vanishing on 7th Street from YouTube:
Originally, Vanishing on 7th Street is described as more of a psychological thriller about these five survivors who are fighting to stay alive "while grappling with the meaning of existence," since they realize they may be the very last people on earth. The film is directed by Brad Anderson, of Happy Accidents, The Machinist and Transsiberian previously. The screenplay was written by Anthony Jaswinski of an indie called Killing Time. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in the Midnight Madness category and was acquired by Magnet Releasing. Vanishing on 7th Street will arrive in theaters and on VOD starting February 18th. Interested?

Looks pretty good, I just don't like Hayden Christensen acting period

So looking forward to this - hope it delivers. Concept reminds me of a John Carpenter movie.

Sounds like Darkness Falls but looksWAY more interseting!

Darkness Falls meets The Langoliers meets Alan Wake

Saw this at TIFF and thought it was awful. I'm a big Brad Anderson fan too but couldn't like anything about this movie.

croatoan was an awesome addition.

It's an interesting idea but I'm not sure how they're going to string out the tension of people staying in the light for a whole movie. Seems it'd just get annoying after a while (certainly felt that way for just the trailer).

Anybody notice there was very little dialog for Hayden Christensen.... wonder why? I mean he's a great actor... right? DVD for me, i'll see it for Leguizamo.

I loved Session 9. I thought The Machinist was really good except for one scene. This movie looks creepy enough but has such a terrible cast.

Looks like they pinched the essence of a Dr Who episode I just happened to catch last night when nothing else was on, Silence in the Library. A couple of quotes from a wiki page: "they find it completely devoid of humanoid life" and "the Doctor organises the archeology team to make sure the area is well lit as he explains that they are surrounded by Vashta Nerada, microscopic carnivorous creatures that disguise themselves as shadows to hunt and latch onto their prey."

Croatoan? Isn't that the word left on a vanished outpost in America in the 1700's?

Croatoan? Really? I've had enough crypto-history for one lifetime, thank you very much.

looks like the retarded love child of Night of the Comet and Pulse. Besides, I'm still pissed at Hayden Christensen for prison fucking Star Wars.
Tenacious V on Dec 9, 2010
ugh...hayden...ruined star wars and jumper...otherwise the movie looks ok, cool use of simplistic effects

Looks like the kind of movie that´s got you on the edge of your seat not knowing what the hell is going on and with such a plot, that in the end they rather end it by bringing things back to normal giving us no explanation whatsoever of what ever happened.
