First Official Trailer for Brooklyn-Based Indie Action Movie 'Bushwick'
"Some people know better than to stick around in a war zone?!" RLJ has unveiled an official trailer for the action film Bushwick, a very low budget project that first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight category this year. This has a cool concept - it plays out as one single shot following a woman, Brittany Snow, who emerges from the subway in Brooklyn, NYC to discover the city is being invaded by the military. The backstory is that Texas is seceding from the US, and NYC is under attack. She runs around trying to get home and befriends Dave Bautista. The cast includes Christian Navarro, Arturo Castro, Jeremie Harris, and Jeff Lima. As cool as this may seem, it's actually a terrible film. I saw it at Sundance and hated it, does not live up to expectations at all. I suggest skipping this, it's really not worth your time.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Murnion & Milott's Bushwick, originally from Yahoo:
The story of twenty-year-old Lucy (Snow) and war veteran Stupe (Bautista). Texas is trying to secede from the U.S., and NYC is being used as a negotiation tool. Lucy meets Stupe after coming up from the subway into the military invasion of Brooklyn. Together they decide to cross the treacherous five blocks of Bushwick - littered with looters, local militias, the invading forces, and one crazy cousin - in order to get home and be reunited with Lucy's grandmother. Bushwick is directed by filmmakers Cary Murnion & Jonathan Milott, both of the film Cooties previously, and episodes of "The Off Season". The screenplay is written by Nick Damici & Graham Reznick. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight section. RLJ Ent. opens Bushwick in select theaters + on VOD starting August 25th this summer. Anyone?

If it's as bad as Alex says it is, it's a shame... From the looks of it, it could have been a modern take on "The Warriors"...

Ridiculous excuse for film about nonsense shooting and preaching. Those are becoming worse and worse ...

The plot makes absolutely no sense. Might as well watch Michael Moore's "Canadian Bacon."

LOLLLL martial law, fighting and killing ?? Texas seceding would result in amazing celebrations in the remaining 49 states along with most countries on Earth. The only fighting would be among the #faux45 zombies back in the Lame Star "former state".

The premise is laughable and is obviously an attempt to make a money around "guns are bad and make people violent and Texas is the worst about it!". Also a single state would not secede. If Texas were to leave the rest of the Rust belt and the Farm belt would go as well.

Aesop Rock did the score. That may be the only redeemable factor.
