24 Day 7 World Premiere trailer online
Now I know this isn't film, it's Television, but the box set could be thought of as a serialised film, and in fact the production values are so good and story line is so intense that it might as well be.
So here is the trailer for 24 Day 7, and this is the reason I'm posting this, is because it really is surprising and the plot is being taken forward leaps and bounds.
There's going to be the obvious comparison with Die Hard 4.0 (Live Free or Die Hard) (Filmstalker review), but you know with twenty-four hours to go, that there will be much, much more than just what is shown. In fact that's probably just the opening plot twist.
You can see the trailer right here, but you may need to install the DivX player, don't worry, it doesn't take up much space.
For those of you who aren't going to install the player, here's a quick rundown of series seven of 24.
CTU is shut down for good and Jack Bauer, played by cool Kiefer Sutherland is facing a Congressional Committee, or some such politically askew witch hunt. However right around the corner is a national security issue that results in the FBI borrowing Bauer to try and stop a new band of terrorists, cyber terrorists, led by someone Jack thought was dead...Tony Almeida.
Yes, Carlos Bernard is back, and despite there being no CTU, so are Mary Lynn Rajskub, playing Chloe O'Brian and James Morrison playing Bill Buchanan. The President this time is played by Cherry Jones, with Bob Gunton and Colm Feore as her Chief of Staff and the First Gentleman.
Honestly this series looks pretty intense, as was the last one. I really don't see how they can bring this sort of constant pressure and raising of the stakes hour by hour to the big screen.
I really do believe that television series are outdoing films these days, and not just because they have more time to spend on the story, but in the writing and direction.
