When it comes to dramatic effect, Academy Award winner Russell Crowe knows how to drive things home, and in his latest film, the high-stakes thriller Unhinged, he unleashes the monster and lets loose with an utterly terrifying performance.
Watch the intense and shocking new trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
A single mother (Caren Pistorius) begins to be stalked and tormented by a stranger (Russell Crowe) following a road rage confrontation at a red light.
Directed by Derrick Borte, Unhinged takes the concept of road rage and dials it up to 100 as a single isolated incident becomes an increasingly dangerous game of cat and mouse as single mother Rachel (Pistorius) finds herself targeted by a dangerous and aggressive stalker (Crowe) who wants to take out his raw rage upon her.
Crowe has completely transformed himself for the role of The Man, and his ordinary guy character becomes a seemingly unstoppable aggressor as he looks to take out all of his life’s frustrations on Rachel and her family over this single slight. It’s a terrifying performance on behalf of Crowe and he will seriously have you on edge with this character.
Crowe is joined by fellow Kiwi Caren Pistorius as Rachel, a single mother who herself is going through hard times, only to find herself under the threat of this unstoppable aggressor. It’s a great role for the young actress and she looks to hold her own against Crowe.
This trailer will seriously have you on edge, and Borte’s direction promises a film that will have you gripping the corners of your seat, while your heart rate skyrockets!
In an interesting update, Unhinged has also been moved forward from its original release date of September 4, 2020 to July 1, 2020, and is being used to test the waters for cinemas and this new cinematic experience that we now find ourselves in with COVID-19. It’ll be interesting to see how it develops from here and whether Unhinged will make it’s new July release date, but if it does come together we could have a template for future releases to follow this year.
Unhinged will arrive in cinemas on July 1.
