When he’s not starring in the latest Neill Blomkamp feature, Sharlto Copley has mostly taken the back seat in films such as The A-Team and The Europa Report, but alongside a villainous turn in this season’s Oldboy, he’ll get to lead his very own thriller. Directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego, who is thankfully coming back down to earth after Apollo 18, Open Grave features Copley as a man who wakes up amongst dead bodies and begins searching for answers.
The first trailer has now landed, which might give away a few too many shots, but sells a compelling, dark thriller. Set to hit VOD on December 24th ahead of a theatrical release on January 3rd, check out the trailer and poster below for the film also starring Thomas Kretschmann, Josie Ho, Joseph Morgan, Erin Richards and Max Wrottesley.
A man (Sharlto Copley, DISTRICT 9, ELYSIUM) wakes up in a pit of dead bodies with no memory of who he is or how he got there. Fleeing the scene, he breaks into a nearby house and is met at gunpoint by a group of terrified strangers, all suffering from memory loss. Suspicion gives way to violence as the group starts to piece together clues about their identities, but when they uncover a threat that’s more vicious—and hungry—than each other, they are forced to figure out what brought them all together—before it’s too late.
