Red Lights Trailer Touts The Power Of De Niro
Spanish director Rodrigo Cortés first drew notice Stateside in 2010, when his claustrophobia-inducing drama Buried became the talk of the Sundance Film Festival. So it's little surprise that Cortés brought his follow-up, the star-studded Red Lights, back to the prestigious cinema celebration this year to seek a distributor. With big names like Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver, Cillian Murphy and Elizabeth Olsen attached, Red Lights quickly secured a domestic distribution deal with Millennium Films, despite the fact that Sundance audiences generally jeered the paranormal thriller.
Red Lights' theatrical release will begin in Spain, as such the first full trailer to be released was overdubbed by Spanish-speaking actors. But now, Shock Till You Drop has garnered the English-language version, where these lauded stars speak for themselves:
"There are two kinds of people out there with a special gift: the ones who really think they have some kind of power, and the other guys who think we can't figure them out. They're both wrong."
Red Lights follows a pair of skeptical investigators (Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy) on their mission to bust hoaxes. But this is no Ghostbusters tale filled with goofy ghouls. Instead, this scientifically minded team of a psychologist and a physicist seek to debunk self-proclaimed psychics with their masterful deduction skills. In fact, they're so deft at what they do that Weaver's jaded investigator laments there's no challenge left. However, this all changes when Murphy's daring upstart looks to investigate a celebrity psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro), a reckless decision that throws him and his new girlfriend (Martha Marcy May Marlene's Elizabeth Olsen) into a jarring world of intrigue and unexplainable phenomena.
Red Lights opens in Spain March 2nd. Plans for the U.S. release have not yet been revealed.
