Imprisoned Trailer

"I thought I paid for my past, but it doesn't seem it was enough." Cinema Libre has debuted the official trailer for an indie drama titled Imprisoned, set mostly at a prison about an inmate trying to put his past behind him and move on. Juan Pablo Raba stars as Dylan Burke, hoping to move on and focus on his relationship with his true love, Maria, played by Juana Acosta. He soon realizes that his past will continue to haunt him, when he learns the new local prison warden, as played by Laurence Fishburne, has not forgiven him for an old crime against his family. The two end up in a confrontation facing off against each other during a prison riot. The full cast includes Esai Morales, Edward James Olmos, John Heard, Jon Huertas, Fernanda Urrejola, Ana Isabelle, and Luis de La Rosa. We haven't heard of this film before today, which most often isn't a good sign, but it seems like a solid prison drama anyway. Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ two posters) for Paul Kampf's Imprisoned, direct from CL's YouTube:

In the thriller, Imprisoned, Dylan Burke (Juan Pablo Raba), attempts to move on from his former life as a criminal, with his true love, Maria (Juana Acosta). He soon realizes that his past will continue to haunt him, when he learns the new local prison warden, Daniel Calvin (Laurence Fishburne), has not forgiven him for an old crime. Calvin does everything in his power to make sure that Burke pays for his past mistakes, even going as far as to frame him for a murder he didn’t commit, landing him back in jail. When the prison erupts into a riot, Burke and Calvin are each forced to make a choice between righteousness and revenge. Imprisoned is both written and directed by American indie filmmaker Paul Kampf, director of the films Brothers Three: An American Gothic, From Grace, Amnesia: Who Are You?, Brad's Untitled Restaurant Project, and Best Fake Friends previously. This hasn't premiered at any festivals or elsewhere. Cinema Libre will release Kampf's Imprisoned in select US theaters starting September 13th. Interested?

The music is horrible, while the story looks so-so ...

Ha! I just ran into my old friend Laurance F. the other days in Ralph's (it's a grocery store here in L.A.) of all places. It was good to see him, but this has to be an old film because if John Heard is in it he's dead and has been for a while now. Fish has had a long lasting career and this movie is just another of many that he's been in. He's a good guy too...always has been.

Oh, I believe he is. Yes, he realy has had great roles and the only reason I might consider watching this is him. Which means, I wasn't really talking about him but much more about the production of the film. Anyway, if you see him again, say hello.

Not sure I'll even watch this regardless of Fish being in it. We'll see. If it comes around to cable. I'll tell him if I see him again that I know a guy on the internet from Croatia that likes his'm sure he'll like that. Who wouldn't. I'll ask him if he's ever been there. Cheers

I don't remember him being here ever. Usually, that kind of thing hits the media here. But nevermind, it's good to wish people good. Enjoy yourself ...
