Solstice Pictures have released the official trailer for upcoming thriller Unhinged starring Russell Crowe.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Single mother, Rachel, begins to be stalked and tormented by a stranger following a road rage confrontation at a red light.
While the premise is simple and the film could potentially be entertaining, the use of Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ and how it’s spliced into the trailer doesn’t really sell it and just feels distracting. And while it has that VOD feel to it, Solstice president/CEO Mark Gill has announced that they plan to have the film hit theatres (in the US at least) in July, becoming one of the first films to test the water once lockdowns of the coronavirus pandemic are eased in the country. Gill said:
We made this decision after extensive consultation with the National Association of Theatre Owners and leading theatre chains. Those conversations have convinced us there is a way to meet pent up demand for the theatrical experience safely.
The film is directed by Derrick Borte, written by Carl Ellsworth and also stars Caren Pistorius, Gabriel Batmen, Jimmi Simpson, Anne Leighton, Michael Papajohn, Lucy Faust, Austin P. McKenzie and Devyn A. Tyler.
Unhinged is ‘scheduled’ for cinematic release (US only) on the 1st July 2020.
