Terrible Casting Gives Away ‘Gone’ Killer in Trailer Premiere

It’s been quite awhile since we’ve heard anything about Summit Entertainment’s serial killer genre pic Gone, but the silence has been broken with the trailer premiere for the Heitor Dhalia-directed thriller arriving in theaters February 24.

We’ve added the trailer below that’s 50% awesome and 50% god awful.

The thriller revolves around a young woman named Jill (Seyfried) who returns home from her night shift to find her sister’s bed empty. She’s convinced the serial killer who kidnapped her two years before has come back to finish the job. But the police do not believe Jill, who knows time is running out. With no one to turn to, she sets off to find her sister and face her abductor once and for all.

All of the footage featuring Amanda Seyfried is pretty compelling, and I enjoy the motivation that she has to take matters into her own hands to catch the killer. This leads me to what I hate about the trailer: the police. It seems absolutely idiotic that the police wouldn’t believe her, and even more ridiculous that they’d be hunting her down — unless (spoiler warning) the killer is a man in blue. Based on the trailer, I’d bet a pretty hefty sum that Daniel Sunjata (“Rescue Me”) is involved with the kidnappings. Not to mention there are clearly two people during an assault towards the last shot of the trailer. Am I wrong? You tell me.
