I think Lionsgate are handling the marketing for Buried really well as I think it’s pretty hard to sell to a mainstream audience but the way they have teased the conceptual elements and what appear to be Hitchcock influences, without giving away too much could really suck people in.
Buried is receiving a limited release in the US on September the 24th and then opening across the country on October the 8th. Still no word on a UK release date though.
Synopsis: Paul Conroy is not ready to die.
But when he wakes up 6 feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time – fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true
