Trailer Watch: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s Intruders

Courtesy Yahoo! Movies comes the full trailer for 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo supernatural thriller, Intruders. The film stars Clive Owen, Carice van Houten, Daniel Bruhl, Pilar Lopez de Ayala and Kerry Fox and centers around “two families whose lives are disrupted by menacing apparitions: in Spain, a mother tries to protect her son from a faceless stranger, while in Britain, a young girl has terrifying dreams of a demon who becomes a real danger to her and her family.”

Intruders premieres at the 59th San Sebastian Film Festival on September 16th and will be released in the US, the UK, Spain and Ireland on October 7th.

Trailer Watch: Killer Elite rocks you like a hurricane

Based on Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ novel, The Feather Men (not the Sam Peckinpah film, The Killer Elite), Killer Elite — purported to be based on actual events, but I’m gonna gets veerrryy loosely — is about an “ex-special ops agent (Jason Statham) who is lured out of retirement to rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro). To make the rescue, he must complete a near-impossible mission of killing three tough-as-nails assassins with a cunning leader (Clive Owen).” Chuck‘s Yvonne Strahovski gets fourth billing as a ridiculously hot blone woman who seems to be friendly with Statham’s character.

Director Gary McKendry is a new one to me; the Irish commercial director has only one short film to his credit on IMDB, but this action in this trailer looks pretty ace. We’ll see if he can tell a story as well on September 23.
