Open Grave

After a breakthrough performance in District 9 and taking strong supporting roles in films like The A-Team and Elysium (plus a promising villainous turn in Oldboy), Sharlto Copley is back in the lead with Open Grave. The first trailer for the thriller from Gonzalo López-Gallego has arrived, showing off the story of a man who wakes up in a pit of rotting corpses with no idea how he got there. He begins having flashbacks of himself murdering people and starts to think that he might be responsible for the pile of bodies surrounding him. This looks intense, and we're hoping the January release date isn't a bad sign. Watch it!

Here's the first trailer for Gonzalo López-Gallego's Open Grave, originally from Apple:

Open Grave is directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego (Apollo 18) and written by newcomers Eddie and Chris Borey. A man (Sharlto Copley) wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but then they uncover a threat that's more vicious than each other. Thomas Kretschmann, Josie Ho and more also star in the film which Tribeca Films releases early next year on January 3rd.

Yup, but perhaps in a good way. I am curious for the next trailer.

Had the feel of a zombie movie then transformed into a open like Saw world feel but then that last shot with the huge grave was something else... not sure how I feel but I'll watch of course.

I think everyone's had a night out that ends a bit like this. Looks good, will be peeping it.

And no one can concentrate on the themes of this trailer because we all like, "That's Sharlto Copely--that's Sharlto Copely..." O.O
