When Lionsgate picked up Buried they must have wondered how to deal with people, such as those with ADD, who can't keep interested on a single ongoing subject. Sure, the film is about to be suspenseful, but it sits entirely with Ryan Reynolds stuck in a coffin. The film is likely to be so dark, that the trailer decided to preview the film another way.
Paul Conroy is not ready to die. But when he wakes up 6 feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time - fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true.
Instead of showing actual footage from the film, Lionsgate took the other approach by playing soundbites while showing off critical acclaim. Okay, we get it, some critics like the film, but how about some idea on what we can actually see?
