Trailer for Black Rock starring Kate Bosworth and Lake Bell tries to be a female Deliverance

Nov. 29, 2012by: Paul Shirey

So, here's the trailer for BLACK ROCK, the new horror-thriller from actress/director Katie Aselton, starring Kate Bosworth, Lake Bell, and Aselton as a group of childhood friends who decide to reconnect by taking a rickety boat to a tiny island off the coast of Washington. Seems legit, yeah?

The trailer is kind of like a paint-by-numbers guidebook to cutting a trailer in film school, but it almost works as a kind of comical piece, as you will likely be asking yourself, "Wait, are they serious?" The film premiered at Sundance earlier this year to ho-hum reviews, but with a miniscule budget, the pic will likely turn a decent profit by the time it's released. Hopefully, they'll cut a new trailer, which either makes it look more legit or more like the B-movie it likely is. My idea for a tagline? BLACK ROCK - "No means No."

Head to the island:

BLACK ROCK is slated for release on May 17, 2013. So, you can catch this or watch IRON MAN 3 again. The choice is yours.

Extra Tidbit: My snark gets the best of me, so I'll be honest...this is something I'll absolutely give a go on Netflix or HBO. It's a total Mystery Science Theater screener.

Mark Duplass?

Edit: I'm an idiot. Didn't realize that Mark Duplass not only worked with Katie Aselton on nearly every film he directed with his brother, but she is also his wife. That makes this the opposite of a surprise. It makes perfect sense, in fact, even though Mark Duplass has been associated with better,

The biggest surprise for me from this trailer didn't come until the end, and it was in the credits: the script was written by Mark Duplass, actor, director, and writer best associated with the

The biggest surprise for me from this trailer didn't come until the end, and it was in the credits: the script was written by Mark Duplass, actor, director, and writer best associated with the mumblecore genre. Now that seems totally unexpected and the only intriguing thing about this film. How did Mark Duplass become involved in this?

hey zoneill, chill the fuck out. it was an honest question. He was simply giving his 2 cents on the trailer and had a question about something innocent. Sometimes people on the internet would rather ask a fellow schmoe for an answer than take the easy (and lonely) way out. Take your douchebaggery somewhere else and let the rest of us discuss films in peace.
