Watch: Elijah Wood Spies on Sasha Grey in 'Open Windows' Trailer
Following the first poster in February, we now have a trailer for Nacho Vigalondo's new thriller Open Windows, featuring adult film star Sasha Grey as an actress named Jill who finds herself in danger as a fan named Nick (Elijah Wood) watches from his computer. But the fan isn't the one threatening her life in this game that unfolds through the Internet. Despite the unique presentation of the narrative, this looks much more generic than we hoped, and also annoying as hell because it presents a computer interface unlike anything real users actually have. Anyway, maybe Wood can make this somewhat enjoyable? Watch!
Jill (Sasha Grey) is a famous actress who has refused to have dinner with Nick (Elijah Wood), a fan who won a date with her in an Internet contest organized by the distributor of her latest film. In return, a guy named Chord (Neil Maskell), posing as Jill's campaign manager, tries to help Nick by letting him watch her through his computer. But the superfan soon realizes he's just a pawn in a dangerous game devised by Chord in order to hunt down the star. Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial, The ABCs of Death) writes and directs Open Windows which will likely hit theaters and VOD sometime in 2014. Interested?

Hard to hope for much from a movie that stars a Porn star. Exception Boogie Nights.

The trailer seems to show way too much so I stopped it halfway through, but I'm definitely intrigued by another work by Vigalondo. Also, Elijah did a fantastic job with the Maniac remake so that has me hooked as well...

Nacho Vigalondo kicks ass, and the whole visual style of this thing looks really slick. Definitely liking what I'm seeing so far.

Actually looks pretty interesting.

Sasha Grey naked in front of a shitty digital camera. Nothing new here.

It looks bad but I think that might be more the editing of this trailer than anything else. Did the producers not pay the editor? Also, hands up who thinks they know how this will end. o/

This is embarrassingly bad on all levels.

I would put this one down as a possible rental.

I apologize but I can't take Sasha Grey seriously as an actual "actress".

Well that escalated quickly... doesn't really bode well when the best thing about the idea of this film (and the trailer) were the opening tags. =/

I intend not to sound prude, but do we really need to let Sasha Grey cross the line into legit films? I recall when Alisha Klass tried, but failed - she had a scene cut from Cruel Intentions. I think we have Soderberg to blame for this. Yes, she is hot and sexy. And I can tell you I've seen her "true" work. But, I always thought that the crossover was forbidden. I mean, (and cover your eyes if you don't want to be grossed out) she's been paid to drink her own urine, eat out male anus (and probably female, lol), take multiple things in both of the "downstairs" holes, etc. So, again, not sounding prude cuz I do enjoy some porn. This film will no doubt be R-rated, but there will be those 17 year old high schoolers who go see this, look her up, and think her porn is perfectly normal - thus skewing further the lines of acceptability for our youth. They will see a mainstream actress on the big screen and think that her "other" job is totally normal. Anyhow, just my thoughts. And, come to think of it, if we are trading actresses from one side of the business to the other, I think we can let Miley head on over to the porn side for a bit; she's halfway there already. 🙂
