Another Forgettable John Cusack Role in the 'Reclaim' Thriller Trailer

It seems like every John Cusack movie lately comes and goes just as quickly as we briefly hear about it online. From The Prince to The Numbers Station and even Grand Piano (though it's pretty entertaining), they all offer nothing in the vein of memorable performances from the actor who once shined on the big screen. And it looks like another one is on the way in this trailer for Reclaim. This one is supposedly inspired by real events and follows an American couple who travel to Puerto Rico to finalize an adoption and pick up their seven year-old adoptee, but as you might expect, things aren't at all what they seem to be. Ugh.

Here's the first trailer for Alan White's Reclaim from USA Today:

Reclaim is directed by Alan White (Broken) and written by Luke Davies and Carmine Gaeta. The film follows Steven (Ryan Phillippe) and Shannon (Rachelle LeFevre), an American couple, who travel to Puerto Rico to finalize the adoption of their new seven-year-old daughter. However, when Steven clashes with an intimidating local (John Cusack) and things go from strange to absolutely terrifying when Nina disappears from her bed one night. Despite frantic efforts to recover their daughter, the young couple hit roadblock after roadblock and become increasingly desperate, finding themselves further entwined in a perplexing web of lies and confusion. Luis Guzman also stars in the film hitting VOD & limited theaters September 19th.

We don't get thrillers with real people protagonists very often and word is this one's going to be good-- a nice comeback for John and a breakout performance from Rachelle Lefevre. Lionsgate knew what it had when it picked it up.

The first sentence of this article makes it seem like this is a new occurence. Sadly,it is not.

That has to be the worst trailer ever! It feels like I've watched the entire movie! With a decent non-spoiler trailer I may have wanted to see the movie...
