Full trailer for Red Lights with Cillian Murphy, Robert DeNiro, and Sigourney Weaver

Feb. 1, 2012by: Paul Shirey

The first full-length, English-language trailer for Rodrigo Cortes' (BURIED) RED LIGHTS is now online. Starring Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver, and Robert DeNiro, the supernatural thriller recently screened at Sundance to some pretty good acclaim.

Check out the trailer below:

I'm not into the barrage of supernatural movies as they seem to be a dime a dozen these days, but this looks very promising to me. The three main actors are all exceptional and Cortes has shown some great skill at creating some genuine tension (BURIED wasn't perfect, but Cortes definitely shot the hell out of a movie that took place in a box).

I can't think of a movie that's really tackled the "supposed" psychics who communicate with the dead before, so it's a ripe concept to exploit. I think its a much more compelling concept than the simple "this place is haunted" concept. If it's a success I'm sure it'll be beaten like a dead horse, complete with found footage movies, etc.

Either way, this looks like a damn fine thriller to me. No release date has been set yet, but expect an announcement soon.

Extra Tidbit: My favorite Cillian Murphy performance still rests with one of my all time favorite movies, Sunshine. What's yours?

Sadly the one thing making me wary is the phrase "starring Robert DeNiro". Somehow those words have gone from being a mark of quality to a sign of mediocrity. Hopefully this will break the pattern and begin a revival for DeNiro.

Obviously won't watch it and spoil the experience, but so can't wait.
Buried is one of the best films ever made and showed the director is one of the best ones ever. He truly knows about good filmmaking (making a 90 minute movie in ONE place more exciting than 99% of other movies out there). I still wished he would continue making true work of art like Buried and no mainstream movies, but well.

Looks good

Everything looks pretty solid here. Murphy was excellent in Sunshine and in his bit role in Inception, but even better in The Wind That Shakes The Barley, a fantastic historical piece about the Irish Revolution igniting the tragic Irish Civil War.

He was good in Sunshine. I also like him in Breakfast on Pluto and the underrated Intermission.

This looks like an interesting movie, definitely agree it seems better than the Poltergeist-style movies that have been done to death.

Trailer + CBum's review, SOLD

I'm liking all the spooky supernatural stuff that's coming our way.

I'm also liking that Sigourney Weaver is showing up in more and more movies lately. Nostromo Pictures? LOL nice coincidence.

That looks really cool. I'm not a believer in that kind of stuff, but it still intrigues me. I will probably check this out. Good cast too.
