Beyond a Reasonable Doubt trailer online
A trailer for Peter Hyam's Beyond a Reasonable Doubt has arrived online, and while the trailer doesn't look the best it does convey the feeling that this could be a strong thriller.
The film is a remake of the 1956 film, and the remake stars Michael Douglas, Jesse Metcalfe and Amber Tamblyn, and Douglas is looking superb in it, playing the malevolent looking bad guy.
Peter Hyams has a number of strong thrillers behind him, so there's a good chance that this could turn out to be another strong film to add to his career of films such as Capricorn One, Outland, The Star Chamber (also starring Michael Douglas), 2010, Running Scared, The Presido, Narrow Margin, Timecop, The Relic and End of Days.
The story sees an investigative journalist, Jesse Metcalfe, frame himself for murder in order to get into the court system and expose the corrupt district attorney, Michael Douglas, in court. However his plans begin to go horribly wrong.
The idea is superb and I'm quite taken with the story and casting, as well as that rather Hitchcock style poster. I haven't seen the original film starring Dana Andrews and Joan Fontaine, but it was directed by the great Fritz Lang.
