Stephen Dorff Stuck in a Car Trunk in First Trailer for Thriller 'Brake'

In 2010 I found myself completely impressed by the claustrophobic thriller Buried starring Ryan Reynolds which takes place entirely in a coffin buried underground. Now a similar concept comes along in the form of Brake, a new thriller starring Stephen Dorff. However, this film seems to raise the stakes and promises plenty of suspense as it follows a secret service agent who wakes up stuck in the trunk of a car and soon discovers that he's part of a bigger terrorist attack that has car bombs blowing up all over Washington D.C. The film was shot in just 11 days, and it really looks like it could be something pretty damn cool. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Gabe Torres' film Brake, originally via Collider:

Gabe Torres directs the singularly located thriller Brake starring Stephen Dorff. Jeremy Reins (Dorff) is trapped in the trunk of a car and as his captors reveal themselves and their motives, Jeremy realizes he won’t be set free until he gives up the whereabouts of “Roulette,” a secret location where the U.S. President is taken in the event of a terrorist attack. The film hits VOD February 17th and select theaters March 23rd.

I have a feeling that this won't be as good as Buried

All I can Say is it looks better than Buried, because Ryan Reynolds is not involved.

Im not saying Buried wasn't good, it was, I'll give it that much

Looks pretty funny. What crazy things will the terrorists think up next?

Interesting! Yes, he gets out, obviously! But, I think it's a gimmick that leads to an outcome we won't be anticipating! I'll check this out!...............And yes, "Buried", was a pretty good flick!

It looks and sounds like a special event episode of 24.  This didn't look like anything better than a tv show.

I was invited to a screening of Brake.  I went in expecting to not like it, but came out of the theater loving it!  This movie is highly suspenseful and thrilling. I actually didn't get bored of watching Stephen Dorff stuck in a trunk! His acting is excellent and it was definitely worth my 88 minutes
