The Mist HD trailer stuns
I've just been blown away by the trailer for Stephen King's The Mist from the superb Writer/Director Frank Darabont. Seriously, it has put me straight into the mood for some tense horror action within seconds of pressing play, and what's more is it looks fabulous in HD.
Going by the trailer it looks like Frank Darabont has done an amazing job of adapting Stephen King's story for the big screen, the effects look good, the performances look strong, and there's not that feeling of cheese that there so often is with King adaptations. Plus it looks like a great cast mix on screen.
The story is about a group of people who get caught in a supermarket when a strange mist descends on their town. Normally a thick fog like this wouldn't really bother people, but when a bloodied survivor runs into the store shouting about the terror that's within it, people listen and their fear takes over.
Toby Jones, Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden, William Sadler, Andre Braugher, Laurie Holden and Chris Owen are probably the most recognisable names from the cast, and a few of them are quite a surprise to see here.
What looks great about the trailer for The Mist is that it seems to be concentrating on the fear and division of the people more than the creatures, although that said I could have done without seeing the creatures at all, I would have thought the threat and the interactions in the surviving group would have been tension and suspense enough.
It looks like there are going to be some powerful scenes in here, and well worth watching in HD.
