We have to say, this first trailer for Saban Films The Vanishing looks really damn promising. Gerard Butler, Peter Mullan and Connor Swindells star as lighthouse keepers trying to hide the secret of a chest of gold, and it's apparently based on a true story.
Kristoffer Nyholm directs from a script by Celyn Jones and Joe Bone:
Tense, action-packed thriller based on true events. After three lighthouse keepers arrive for work on a remote Scottish isle, they make a fateful discovery: a wrecked rowboat—with a chest full of gold. As a mysterious boat heads toward the island, the three men make a choice that will change their lives forever, ensnaring them in a web of greed, paranoia, and murder.
On an uninhabited island 20 miles from the rugged Scottish coast, three lighthouse keepers arrive for their 6 week shift. As they settle into their normal quiet routine, something unexpected, potentially life-changing occurs – they stumble upon gold. What follows is a tense battle for survival, fed by isolation, paranoia and greed, leading three honest men down a path to destruction.
The Vanishing will hit select theaters and On Demand starting January 4th, 2019.
