A Dark Truth trailer shows strong cast

AndyGarcia.jpgWhile the trailer for A Dark Truth or simply The Truth, does show a great cast it is getting a release on iTunes before a release in American cinemas and nowhere else so it might suggest that it's not up to scratch for a full cinematic release. Mind you, while the trailer does carry a hint of not quite the big budget film you'd expect it does look good.

One of the things that makes it look good is the cast - Andy Garcia, Forest Whitaker, Kim Coates, Deborah Kara Unger, and Eva Longoria all appear in the trailer for A Dark Truth that also stars Kevin Durand.

A Dark Truth is written and directed by Damian Lee and sounds like an odd role for one of my personal favourite actors Andy Garcia, here's the blurb to tell you more:

Garcia plays a former CIA operative turned political talk show host, who is hired by a corporate whistle blower (Unger) to expose her company's cover-up of a massacre in a South American village. When he arrives, he is plunged into a violent and chaotic situation, with the military cracking down on a group of protesters led by a pair of activists (Longoria and Whitaker). The ever-increasing depletion of earth's natural resource of water serves as the backdrop for this tense environmental thriller.

Interesting that you never get the hint of the thriller aspect from the trailer, it's all about the action with Garcia as the leading ex-CIA agent carrying out the private mission which gets him embroiled with the CIA once more.

It's a role that seems somewhat out of sorts for the actor and the roles he normally takes but considering he's in there with Forest Whitaker I'd be tempted to see this. Problem is I'd have to watch it on iTunes, and I don't use iTunes so I'm all out of luck.

You can see the trailer for A Dark Truth over at Apple Trailers and it's worthwhile because it does look rather good and it's the line-up of actors that's selling the trailer for me, however I'm rather surprised that it takes this more conventional route and there's a fair amount of the story missed out from the trailer that's covered in the blurb.
