Watching the trailer, I got reminded of Stephen King's short story AUTOPSY ROOM 4. The two stories have the same basic plot, a man is supposed to be dead/knocked out, but actually isn't and can hear everything that's happening to him on the hospital table. The plot for AWAKE is: A successful young man is put to sleep for a heart surgery and suffers 'anesthetic awareness,' meaning he is actually awake and aware of everything going on, but is paralyzed. He must try and find a way to awake and save his life with the help of his wife while she battles her own demons.
The cast includes Hayden Christensen, Lena Olin, Jessica Alba (below), and Terrence Howard. From the looks of the trailer, this is a great cast for the film. It was written and directed by Joby Harold. To check out the trailer, you can head over here. It's a basic trailer that gives a great feel for the whole movie. It definately got me interested. Then again, anything with the words Jessica and Alba get me interested. The film is slated to hit theaters February 26, 2008.
Jessica Alba, I don't even need to add a comment, just enjoy.
