While we’ve all got July 17th and the debut of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet as the bellwether for the future viability of theatrical releases, there’s another movie with an A-list actor that will beat it by a couple of weeks. That movie is the Russell Crowe road rage thriller Unhinged, which has a new trailer that could convince audiences to come out of shelter a bit early.
Unhinged finds Russell Crowe going…well, unhinged, as a man who is pushed over the edge by an incident at a traffic light and proceeds to stalk the woman involved. Caren Pistorius (Slow West, Gloria Bell) plays Crowe’s target, with Gabriel Bateman and Jimmi Simpson co-starring. The film is directed by Derrick Borte, who made his debut in 2009 with The Joneses.
So will people show up for Unhinged when it opens on July 1st? We’ll just have to wait and see.
SYNOPSIS: Academy Award winner Russell Crowe stars in Unhinged, a timely psychological thriller that explores the fragile balance of a society pushed to the edge, taking something we’ve all experienced- road rage – to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late to work when she has an altercation at a traffic light with a stranger (Crowe) whose life has left him feeling powerless and invisible. Soon, Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who decides to make one last mark upon the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse that proves you never know just how close you are to someone who is about to become unhinged.
