Here is the first trailer for Rupture, a new film from director Steven Shainberg (who made Secretary, earning him a lifetime pass in my household) and co-written with Brian Nelson (the even-more-uncomfortable-than-you-remember-it Hard Candy).
It looks bonkers.
So, that looks delightfully weird, but maybe you're having trouble sussing out what the hell's going on here. Luckily, we've got an official plot description (via The Playlist):
Single mom Renee Morgan has learned to be strong by necessity. One day, after dropping her son off at school and going about daily chores, she’s suddenly abducted and locked away in a truck that drives off — and continues driving for days. Wherever she’s being taken, it’s very far away. The truck finally arrives at a large, mysterious facility that could be pharmaceutical, could be governmental, could be anything. A mysterious man begins to question her about her medical history. He then starts asking about her fears. Renee realizes just how irrational and frightening a situation she’s in. Others arrive, observing her. Why Renee? What could these people want? The answers to both questions lie far from any scenario she could possibly imagine.
Our own Meredith Borders caught Rupture when it screened during the Fantastia Film Festival, and her review convinced me this is a film I need to see. The director of Secretary? Co-writing a script with the dude who wrote Hard Candy? Insidious pyschological experiments? Noomi Rapace, Peter Stormare, Michael Chiklis and a snake? I could not be more onboard for these shenanigans if I tried. I'm in.
Unfortunately, I'm also unsure when I'll get to see Rupture: according to The Playlist's post, the film hits cinemas and VOD in the UK on November 4th, but as of yet there's no American release date on the books. Someone needs to pick this thing up so we can see it!
Stay tuned for updates as they roll in, folks.
