Yesterday I posted the first image from Chernobyl Diaries. Today, as promised, we have the first trailer.
It is another found footage film but setting it in Chernobyl gives it a very eerie feeling (plus reminds me of that bit in Modern Warfare – Ghillies in the Mist).
The bit in the trailer with the little kid did creep me out a bit.
“Chernobyl Diaries” is an original story from Oren Peli, who first terrified audiences with his groundbreaking thriller, “Paranormal Activity.” The film follows a group of six young tourists who, looking to go off the beaten path, hire an “extreme tour” guide. Ignoring warnings, he takes them into the city of Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor, but a deserted town since the disaster more than 25 years ago. After a brief exploration of the abandoned city, however, the group soon finds themselves stranded, only to discover that they are not alone…
Brad Parker directs. The film stars Jonathan Sadowski, Jesse McCartney, Devin Kelley, Nathan Phillips, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Dimitry Diatchenko, and Olivia Taylor Dudley.
Chernobyl Diaries is out on May 25th.
