Hold Your Breath Trailer

"Special suits let patients go out. Then anything's possible." Signature Entertainment has debuted a brand new UK trailer for the indie survival thriller which they're now releasing with the title Hold Your Breath this fall. The film is originally titled Dans la Brume in French (which just means In the Fog) but has also had other international titles like Just a Breath Away and Toxic. The movie is about a "toxic mist" that covers the streets of Paris. Only those lucky enough to escape to the rooftops of the city were able to survive. Mathieu and Anna must face the fog if they have any hope of saving their daughter, who is trapped in a medical tank down below. Starring Olga Kurylenko & Romain Duris, with Fantine Harduin, Michel Robin, Anna Gaylor, Réphaël Ghrenassia, and Erja Malatier. This is yet another high concept urban survival thriller but it actually looks pretty cool, another take on the scary mist/fog horror. It's worth a look.

Here's the new UK trailer (+ two French posters) for Daniel Roby's Hold Your Breath, from YouTube:

Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Romain Duris (All the money in the world) star in this gripping, high concept disaster thriller, set on the roof-tops of Paris. Mathieu and Anna are desperately trying to save their daughter from a deadly toxic mist that has engulfed Paris, when the city of lights is hit by an earthquake that fills the streets with a mysterious gas. Only those lucky enough to escape to the rooftops of the city were able to survive. Mathieu and Anna must face the fog if they have any hope of saving their daughter, who is trapped in a medical tank below. Hold Your Breath, also known as Just a Breath Away or Toxic or Dans la Brume, is directed by Canadian filmmaker Daniel Roby, director of the films White Skin, Funkytown, and Louis Cyr previously. The screenplay is written by Guillaume Lemans and Jimmy Bemon & Mathieu Delozier; from an original idea by Guillaume Lemans & Dominique Rocher. This originally opened in France last spring, and has already played in most of Europe. Signature will release Hold Your Breath on VOD in the UK starting September 30th this fall. There's still no US release date yet. Anyone interested?

What I don't like about this is the story of a sick girl. It's an obvius tear jerking piece that is too obvious. Not cool ...

I was in as soon as I read Olga Kurylenko was in I watched the trailer. I don't know. It's got a very bad American title. In The Fog was the original and that works. But Hold Your Breath? It so typically American simplification for the dumb masses here. I think the trailer looked good, but the fog or mist thing kind of takes it down a level or two into silly horror. Still...there's

i have to ask: this is a french film being given the title "hold your breath" as to market the trailer in the UK. so, HOW do you come up with the notion it's an american title and an "american simplification for the dumb masses here"? - if true, wouldn't they be marketing this trailer with this title in the US? and i'd love to know know how you differentiate between the 2 titles as one being ok and the other being an american simplification? even though, the name change goes with this new UK trailer. both titles have a way of being descriptive of the movie. i don't see the problem with either title. (actually, i prefer "hold your breath" and "in the fog" to "just a breath away" or "toxic".

Gee, I really need to explain to you how I differentiate between things? I smell you taking my opinions and observations personally and seem to remember bumping heads with you before over such petty and trite arguments on your part. Perhaps I know that Signature is an American company located in Beverly Hills and that this film is heading here and having been involved in the film industry for many years am familiar with American distributors 'dumbing down' titles to better appeal to the dumbed down American audiences. That you don't see the problem with the two simplified titles and actually prefer the dumb 'hold you breath' kind of makes my point. Regardless, different strokes for different folks and one man's ceiling is another man's floor. I hold fast that this was dumbed down for dumbed down audiences. If you've a problem with my observations I can only suggest you get a grip and learn to live with it...or even learn something about the film business you might not otherwise know. This kind of thing changing titles of foreign film for American or even UK audiences is nothing new, bubba. I hope you are able to relax with my explanations that I didn't really owe to you and maybe learn something.

you could have saved yourself a lot of writing and simply said you can't explain it- because you didn't. but that's ok, bo. your pseudointellectual nonsense is very entertaining to read.

7 really get under your skin, don't I Danny boy? I thought my explanation was pretty simplistic, but it still flew over your head? Wow! It's okay. I can see how intimidated you are by me and I don't even try. Ya gotta work on your insecurity, danny really do...or not. Now to block that means I won't see if you reply, which I'm sure you will anyway...that's the way with guys like bye now.

Since it's a French movie it should have been titled "Hold your Nose".
