First Trailer for Ensemble Drama 'Disconnect' with Jason Bateman
"Everyone is fighting to get ahead." LD Entertainment has debuted a trailer for a film called Disconnect, an ensemble drama about how disconnected we all are in this world, thanks to all the technological devices we have, and "a group of people searching for human connections in today's wired world." Unfortunately this is one of the most boring topics to see on film, and this trailer does nothing to change that. The cast is lead by Jason Bateman, but includes many more: Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Michael Nyqvist, Paula Patton, Andrea Riseborough, Colin Ford, Alexander Skarsgard and Max Thieriot. Give it a look.
Watch the first official trailer for Henry Alex Rubin's Disconnect, in high def from Apple:
A hard-working lawyer, attached to his cell phone, can't find the time to communicate with his family. A couple is drawn into a dangerous situation when secrets are exposed online. A widowed ex-cop struggles to raise a mischievous son who cyber-bullies a classmate. An ambitious journalist sees a career-making story in a teen that performs on an adult-only site. They are strangers, neighbors and colleagues and their stories collide in this riveting dramatic thriller about ordinary people struggling to connect in today's wired world.
Disconnect is directed by Henry Alex Rubin (of Murderball, Who Is Henry Jaglom?), from a screenplay by Andrew Stern. LD Entertainment will be releasing Disconnect in limited theaters on April 12th. Anyone?

I don't know what you're talking about Alex, that looks phenomenal and it's really nice to see Bateman show some dramatic acting chops for once.

Agreed about Bateman. I'm looking forward to seeing him get his more serious side on again.

Yes! It is very refreshing to see Bateman in a drama. I've always been a huge fan of his, but seeing him doing Comedy after Comedy was becoming too much.

Sorry Alex, I disagree.This is a very relevant topic, and an important issue going on in homes and work around the world, and I think this trailer really brings it to life. I'm definately interested in seeing this movie.
Max Alnutt on Mar 1, 2013
I agree with you as well Max: Identity theft, children amiss due to distant parenting, internet sex and scamming...Looks topical.

So it's Crash with the internet/social media?
JoeyBones on Mar 1, 2013
Yeah, uh what the hell are you smoking Alex? This show looks pretty good.
Rain Spider on Mar 1, 2013
Wow! Boring topic? I respectfully disagree Alex. This film looks amazing, I cannot wait to see it!

looks excellent. i'm not sure why the writer thinks this looks boring.
dianeT on Mar 1, 2013
I'm guessing Alex doesn't like it because it's about social interaction. Now, if it had some spaceships...
calleduout on Mar 1, 2013
Like the majority, this looks worth watching
Jason on Mar 1, 2013
I don't find this boring at all, the topic is one that's pretty serious within the real world and it looks to portray that message in a deep and meaningful way.

Agreed with everyone else here, as a father I am glad to see this very important topic getting some attention. Looks like this is your next Lincoln boring poster Alex..

Definitely a problem in today's society. Looks alright though.
Carpola on Mar 1, 2013
This movie looks awesome, attention worthy, good to see this topic getting covered, have a younger sister who was being bullied via social media that has resulted in court case. Topic hits close to home. Alex understandably may only find it boring because how "Connected" he needs to stay(his job).

Cast. Sold. Me. The son from Crazy Stupid Love and the son from We Bought A Zoo...good to see them again.
Xerxexx on Mar 1, 2013
This looks like a potential Oscar sleeper along the lines of American Beauty mashed up with Crash retold with the modern element of social media. It could just be a well done trailer, but as long as it doesn't get terribly off track and unrealistic towards the end this could be more than just a simple spring thriller (although its April release date is concerning. That usually shows that the studio doesn't have much faith in it.).
ImaginaryVisionary on Mar 1, 2013
Oh I'll watch that, I really hope this goes well.
Oriyan J. Ovadia on Mar 2, 2013
Another movie trying to demonize the internet. Pass.
Michael P. Shipley on Mar 3, 2013

uuhhh was that designer Marc Jacobs?
Beau Monde on Mar 3, 2013
How the FUCK is this a boring topic? Its pretty much a reflection of our current zetigeist. If it only did not have Jason B in it. I cannot stand him. Really, one of the most overrated actors in this business making money. Still, movie looks good.
buzzfunk on Mar 4, 2013
Yeah this looks great. Nice to see Bateman branch out a bit more. I'll be seeing this for sure.
Jeff Metzger on Mar 4, 2013
The Facebook chat sound effects are distracting.

I watched Disconnect at TIFF 2012 - it was a great movie and well acted. One of my favorite movies that I saw at TIFF.
