As Miramax Films launched the official site of its latest drama thriller "Blindness", the brand new teaser trailer of the film starring Julianne Moore has come out in the interwebs. The creepy video footage lasts up to one and a half minutes.
Started with the sound of a beeping digital alarm clock, the teaser continues with the shot of Moore and Mark Ruffalo's characters in their shared bed. The footage then follows the couple as they are preparing their day. But, their day soon turns to the worse as Ruffalo's character finds out that he is losing his sight. As the story is progressing, it can be seen that the blindness has become an unexplained epidemic and the once-populated city becomes a ghost town.
Based on Jose Saramago's best selling novel, the film has been described to be a psychological thriller about the fragility of mankind as it follows the story of a group of people who were trapped in a quarantine as their city were hit with a blinding plaque. According to MovieWeb, the film that is also starred by Gael Garcia Bernal, Danny Glover and Sandra Oh is scheduled to hit theaters on September 19, 2008.
