One of the films I’ve been most curious about in the Toronto International Film Festival line-up is Nick Cassavetes‘ indie drama Yellow. After showing off some stills, the first trailer has arrived today, which includes tons of crazy imagery from freefallin’ women to flooded classrooms to chain-smoking clowns.

Yellow premieres at TIFF.

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
