I am happy to admit to being very excited about seeing Buried director Rodrigo Cortes’ new film, Red Lights. I am even happier that the film has been brought forward a week here in the UK and will now arrive in UK cinemas at the earlier date of 15th June! Even though the film had some mixed reviews during its festival run, I think the film looks pretty intense and incredibly exciting, and seeing one of my favourite actors of all time, Robert De Niro venturing away from comedy again can only be a good thing.
A new US trailer arrived this week, so check it out below. It is basically an extended version of the UK trailer released in April, but as expected, extended means more new footage!
The impressive cast includes Robert De Niro, Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver, Elizabeth Olsen, Joely Richardson, Toby Jones, Craig Roberts and Karen David. Rodrigo Cortes both wrote and directed the film.

“Two investigators of paranormal hoaxes, the veteran Dr. Margaret Matheson and her young assistant, Tom Buckley, study the most varied metaphysical phenomena with the aim of proving their fraudulent origins. Simon Silver, a legendary blind psychic, reappears after an enigmatic absence of 30 years to become the greatest international challenge to both orthodox science and professional sceptics. Tom starts to develop an intense obsession with Silver, whose magnetism becomes stronger with each new manifestation of inexplicable events. As Tom gets closer to Silver, tension mounts, and his worldview is threatened to its core.”
