When I first heard about the concept behind the upcoming film AWAKE
, I was disturbed. Its an absolute nightmare. A man is put under anesthetics for heart surgery, but although hes paralyzed, he can still hear and feel everything. I couldnt imagine a major motion picture being made on this subject. I use the word major because it stars Hayden Christensen, Jessica Alba, and Terrence Howard. Would the whole movie take place during the surgery, or would it focus on the trauma endured afterwards? Now that Ive finally seen the newly-released trailer, theres a conspiracy element present that I didnt anticipate, and the second half does in fact appear to be taking place in his subconscious, while he tries to figure out what the hell is going on. An out-of-body experience, if you will. I still dont know how theyre going to pull this one off exactly, but its easily one of the most intriguing trailers Ive seen in a while. And using Sias Breathe Me as the soundtrack (remember the song that closed out SIX FEET UNDER?) doesnt hurt. That song can make even a funeral seem emotional. The film is released on November 30 and you can check out the trailer HERE
