Trailer Park Tuesdays: Back open for business.
This week's trailer is for an indie sci-fi mind-bender.
Here's the official synopsis:
On the night of an astrological anomaly, eight friends at a dinner party experience a troubling chain of reality bending events. Part cerebral sci-fi and part relationship drama, COHERENCE is a tightly focused, intimately shot film that quickly ratchets up with tension and mystery.
Sounds good, right? This looks to be one of those low budget, puzzle box kind of movies. It has been getting some good press after doing the festival circuit earlier this year and, to me, this is one to definitely check out. I'm always looking and rooting for an underdog picture to come out of nowhere and knock it out of the park (or at least solidly entertain). Is Coherence one of those movies? Maybe.
Check out the official movie trailer:
Yeah. I'll see that.
For further evidence of the film's mood and premise, here's a teaser clip:
Coherence was written and directed by James Ward Byrkit, who has been working with Gore Verbinski for a number of years in a conceptual consultant capacity (he also has co-story credit on Rango ). This was his first feature film.
The cast includes Emily Baldoni, Maury Sterling (Homeland), Nicholas Brendon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Elizabeth Gracen (Marked for Death), Lauren Maher (Scarlett in the Pirates movies), Hugo Armstrong, Lorene Scafaria, and Alex Manugian (who also conceived of the story for Coherence).
Coherence is being released by Oscilloscope Laboratories and will be playing select cities (LA and NY) starting June 20th before spreading out elsewhere along the west coast (it opens in my neck of the woods July 11th).
For everybody else, the film is also available on VOD. Check out the official website for more info.
Here's the one-sheet. It's rad:
