Australian Crime Thriller 'Transfusion' Trailer with Sam Worthington
"Will I be brave like you one day?" Madman Films in Australia has unveiled a trailer for an Australian crime thriller called Transfusion, marking the feature directorial debut of former rugby player Matt Nable. It's set to open in January in theaters Down Under, during the middle of Australia's summer, but has no other international dates set yet. A former Special Forces is operative thrust into the criminal underworld to keep his only son from being taken from him. In between performing his roles in the Avatar sequels for James Cameron, which were filmed in New Zealand, Sam Worthington took on this lead role as well. He plays a father suffering from PTSD and without identity after retiring from the Special Air Service regiment (SAS) of the Australian Army. The cast also includes Phoebe Tonkin, Edward Friday Carmody, Matt Nable, Jeremy Lindsay Taylor, and Sam Cotton. This seems like it could be solid, it's definitely worth a look.
