Engaging trailer for UK terrorism thriller Closed Circuit starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall

This one was never on my radar until today, but after seeing the trailer for CLOSED CIRCUIT I'm certainly intrigued. Starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall as ex-lovers put on the defense team of a terrorist who carried out an attack on UK soil, the suspense thriller has all the usual ticks you look for in the genre; political intrigue, mysterious motives, and...closed circuit cameras. It makes sense given the setting, as the UK has one of the largest collections of closed circuit cameras stationed around their country (4.2 million closed circuit TV cameras; one per every 14 people), which makes for some interesting crime solving techniques. The real sell here is Bana and Hall, two solid actors who look like they can manage some good chemistry.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

In this international thriller, two ex-lovers, Martin (Eric Bana of "Hanna") and Claudia (Golden Globe Award nominee Rebecca Hall), find their loyalties tested and their lives at risk when they are joined together on the defense team in a terrorism trial.

CLOSED CIRCUIT, directed by John Crowley and starring Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Ciaran Hinds, and Jim Broadbent is set to open on August 28, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I was underwhelmed by Hall in Iron Man 3, but don't blame her. She's shown more than enough potential in pics like The Town and Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
