Christopher Webster [Celluloid 03.09.10] United Kingdom movie trailer news thriller drama

A ton of clips have appeared for this long overdue British kidnapping thriller, but this is the first we're seeing an international trailer (thanks to filmstaker for the heads up). Ben called the film's acting "stellar" in his review (something I've heard from others as well) and the script is supposed to offer some great twists.

Two men line the inside of a transit van with plastic. Shopping, they buy a drill, a mattress and other supplies. In a small flat they assemble a bed for the mattress and staple foam insulation and board to the walls and windows of a bedroom. Then, their meticulous preparations complete, they kidnap a young woman. They drag her from the street into the back of the van and, with a bag over her head and ball gag in her mouth, take her back to the flat, tying her to the bed in the room they have converted into a prison cell.

Terrified and immobile at first, it soon becomes clear that Alice isn’t about to let her captors use her as capital without a fight. As determined to escape as Vic and Danny are to succeed, Alice enters into a battle of wills which strains the already fractious relationship between the two men. As the deadline for the exchange draws nearer, all three are brought close to breaking point, with Vic and Danny’s foolproof plan descending into a desperate struggle for survival.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed stars Gemma Arterton, Martin Compston and Eddie Marsan and has yet to find distribution. With the arrival of this trailer though we're hoping to see it released quite soon.

Thanks for the mention guys.

Eddie Marsan would seem to be the big draw here, but from what I hear Gemma Arterton is quite a surprise in the film, and certainly does seem to be a different actress from the one we've seen in some of the films she's been in of late.
