trailer break: ‘Carriers’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

I liked this better the first time around, when it was called The Stand. Or 28 Days Later. Or Dawn of the Dead. Or Mulberry Street. Or the Resident Evil movies.

No, scratch that: I don’t actually like the Resident Evil movies.

Still, I have this terrible feeling of deja vu. Perhaps that’s why Paramount Vantage is opening this flick tomorrow on only 100 screens in the U.S., before it goes straight to SyFy as a Saturday night flick (or so I presume will happen). None of those 100 screens appear to be in New York or Los Angeles, so it’s been effectively kept from critics.

Oh, and you’ll be shocked to discover, I’m sure, that the faults lie not in the virus but in ourselves:

Over the course of four days, the group is faced with moral decisions that no human should ever be forced to face. They discover that their greatest enemy is not the microbe attacking humanity, but the darkness within themselves.


Carriers opens in the U.S. on September 4; no U.K. release date has been announced.
