Manhattan Night Trailer

"Some secrets should never come to light." Or maybe everyone prefers that kind of creepy tagline better? "No reporter can resist a siren." Lionsgate has unveiled a trailer for a crime thriller called Manhattan Night, a sort of contemporary noir starring Adrien Brody as the pulp writer stuck in the middle of a crazy mysterious story of sex and lies and deceit. The cast includes Jennifer Beals and Yvonne Strahovski, plus Campbell Scott, Linda Lavin, Steven Berkoff and Kevin Breznahan. The trailer sets up the plot better than any text explanation can - this nice family man meets a "seductive stranger" and gets wrapped up in his own twisted story. This seems to be cutting it close to being straight-to-TV quality, so watch out.

Here's the official trailer for Brian DeCubellis' Manhattan Night, direct from YouTube:

Manhattan Night

Based on Colin Harrison's acclaimed novel Manhattan Nocturne, Manhattan Night tells the story of Porter Wren (Adrien Brody), a New York City tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy and anything that passes for the truth. At home he is a model family man, devoted to his loving wife (Jennifer Beals). But when a seductive stranger (Yvonne Strahovski) asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her filmmaker husband Simon (Campbell Scott), he can't resist. In this modern version of a classic film noir, we follow Porter as he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail — one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life. Manhattan Night is both written and directed by Brian DeCubellis, nased on Colin Harrison's novel, making his feature directing debut after a couple of shorts. Lionsgate will release Manhattan Night in theaters + on VOD starting May 20th this year.

Yay! Another crazy lady movie! It's been too long...

Wasn't just the lady who was crazy. With the exception of Brody's character, the men were all perverted, evil, and/or nuts. Don't watch this one on a full stomach.

This should be an upscale Lifetime movie...

I feel sorry for Adrien Brody, he's a good actor and is almost all the time picking wrong movies ... But I believe he'll make better in the future ...

I'd like to feel sorry for him, but he's actually one of the producers of this dreck.

It's business decision. Everybody's aware of that fact. However, I sense and agree partially with your argument. But I also believe that being creative director outside of the process of creating a movie is pretty light burden comparing to the inside perspective. So, along my comment regarding his acting, the same goes for his producing ...

Chinatown meets Fatal Attraction meets Death Wish equals LOAD OF CRAP.

So she is some kind of black widow type? Looks bad.

MaqueeStalker on Apr 15, 2016


One of the trashiest, almost laughably bad movies I believe I've ever seen.
