Cannes 2010: A Trailer For Hideo Nakata's CHATROOM
About to make its debut at the Cannes Film Festival, Kick-Ass' Aaron Johnson continues his ridiculous year bouncing from being John Lennon (Nowhere Boy) to superhero stardom and now on to the biggest film festival in the world. The film is Ringu director Hideo Nakata's screen adaptation of Enda Walsh's play.When jaded teens Jim, Eva, Emily, and Mo meet William online, they're seduced by his charisma. But William isn't what he seems. He's calculating and manipulative and doesn't have time for people in the real world. Jim is vulnerable and has no idea how dangerous his new friendship with William will be. When Jim confesses he's on anti-depressants, William knows he's found a victim. He vows to help Jim get off his drugs, and the rest of the group fall in line.
Honestly I'm not sure how I feel about this one. The stage origins are obvious and the editing on the trailer feels clumsy but at the same time the cast - which also includes Imogen Poots (Centurion) looks quite strong. Clumsy trailer for a good movie? Or is Nakata still looking to regain his early form?
