Quarantine trailer online
The trailer for Quarantine, the Hollywood remake of [REC] has arrived online and it plays out pretty well. Now I've not seen the original film so I can't make a comparison, but from what I'm told, trailer wise, it looks almost identical.
On that vein, I believe it may be identical in showing the last few scenes of the film in the trailer too, and if not it's showing what could be just about every death in the film!
Mind you, never mind, I think that same closing scene is on the poster too! Idiotic marketing and trailer people.
The story for Quarantine goes like this, a television reporter, played by Jennifer Carpenter of Dexter fame, is following a Los Angeles fire crew on night shift when they get a call out to an apartment building. When they get there officers are already on scene and investigating terrifying screams coming from an apartment.
A group enter to investigate with the camera crew following close behind, there's confusion as a couple of them are attacked by some wild person inside the room, and as time goes on they realise that there's something very wrong with some of the residents of the building, and that they are all in mortal danger.
When they try to leave the building, with as many residents as they can find, they discover that the building is in the process of being sealed, i.e. Quarantined, to ensure that no one gets out alive and infects the general population.
The trailer does look great, but then remember that it is almost a direct remake of the original film [REC]. Still there's some good cast to be had, there's Carpenter, Rade Serbedzija, Greg Germann and Jay Hernandez.
Have a look at the trailer below from the superb Quiet Earth, and if you've seen [REC] I'd be interested to hear what your thoughts are.
