New trailer for Brad Anderson's Vanishing on 7th Street appears online

Aug. 18, 2010by:

Director Brad Anderson (THE MACHINST) is back in the genre game with the horror/suspense thriller VANISHING ON 7TH STREET, a film that appears to be harkening back in some ways to his 2001 film SESSION 9. Starring Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, and John Leguizamo, the film will be playing at this year's Toronto International Film Festival as part of the "Midnight Madness" line-up (which includes the cool-looking BUNRAKU, a film we first reported on a little earlier today).

The trailer below comes courtesy of ShockTillYouDrop, and they point out something kind of interesting that I didn't catch: "If you look closely, there's a reference to 'Croatoan' - a nod to the Roanoke Island colony disappearance in 1597 - which might be a clue as to where Anderson is going with this film."

So, what say you?

Synopsis: When a massive power blackout causes the population to inexplicably vanish, a small handful of survivors (Hayden Christensen, Thandie Newton, John Leguizamo) band together inside a desolate tavern struggling to survive as the darkness hones in on them. From director Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Transsiberian) comes an apocalyptic thriller with a terrifying vision of our world's end and a story that wrestles with the nature of existence itself. You can read a longer, more in-depth description RIGHT HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Sadly, I'm not a fan of this film's cast.

Loves me some Brad Anderson movies--this looks like a cool premise, and I will be seeing it most likely. I almost wish he could get more of a budget for one of his movies someday, but no doubt that equates to less creative control.

I'm down. I'm not a Christensen fan, although under skilled directors, like directors that actually give direction, I think he can pull it off. "Shattered Glass" is a great movie and Hayden actually brought something to the table in it.

Damn you Christensen!!!!!!

I'll still see this because BA kicks asses, but man, why sully a potentially good movie with Manakin Skywalker? Really the only thing he was tolerable in was Shattered Glass and only because Sarsgaard rocked that shit and you were meant to not like Haydens character, which is quite easy, obviously. BTW, if you haven't seen one of the best horror films of the decade, check out Andersons awesomely disturbing Session 9, doc.

Anderson's 'Masters of Horror' episode was the best one of the lot that I saw--"Sounds Like". Definitely a must-see. I thought "Transsiberian" was overlooked as well.

Loved The Machinist. But hate Christensen with a passion. Dude is a shitty actor.

This doesn't look bad. I will probably see it mainly because Anderson's previous works, The Machinist and Session 9
