Retreat trailer hints at real answer?

Retreat.jpgThere's a new trailer out for the film Retreat, starring Cillian Murphy, Thandie Newton and the only one with an easy to spell name, Jamie Bell, and set on a remote Scottish island. The film sees a couple alone on an island until a soldier is washed up on shore in a biohazard suit. He claims that the world has been beset by a disease and they have to hold themselves up in the cottage and stay away from the outside world.

Of course they doubt his story, but is it worth the risk? While the trailer is good at putting doubt in our heads it's also rather good at pointing us in the direction of the answer.

Oh I'm sure we were all thinking that this would be the way Retreat would go, but wouldn't it be nice to keep the uncertainty going and having a trailer that delivered either side with equal possibility?

I should say that the new trailer for Retreat is good and this doesn't mean it's the actual way that the story would go, it could be a misdirection, and it's not going to stop me seeing the film for I hope there are going to be some good twists and turns and there are three strong reasons to go and see it - Cillian Murphy, Thandie Newton and the excellent Jamie Bell.

Here's the trailer for the film with Empire found. It looks good and the three actors look set to deliver strong performances, even in the trailer you can see they are on top form.

The film is directed and co-written by Carl Tibbetts who is a first time writer and director for film, his writing partner Janice Hallett is the same, but from the trailer you'll be inclined to agree they're delivering something that could provide for a strong psychological thriller.
