It was announced yesterday that Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has picked up all North American rights to Magnet Films’ thriller Retreat, which stars Cillian Murphy, Thandie Newton and Jamie Bell.
While we scored the first ever still and sales art, this afternoon we finally got our hands on a trailer. It looks kinda boring, and kinda stupid. In fact, it looks like it wishes it were 28 Day/Weeks Later. What say you?
Carl Tibbetts makes his feature directorial debut on the film, which “finds Murphy and Newton heading to a remote island cottage to rebuild their frail marriage. When a wounded and armed stranger (Bell) shows up at their door with news about a deadly airborne virus, they must seal themselves inside the cottage, where the tension starts to escalate from psychological to physical.”
