Unhinged is a new Russell Crowe film where the star plays a man who goes crazy with road rage. The premise sounds a bit like SAW mixed with Falling Down. The film will be released into theaters on July 1st, becoming one of the first to get a wide release since the beginning of March. Solstice Studios is taking advantage of the lack of releases to get a lot of eyes on Unhinged that otherwise wouldn't have. You can check out the trailer, synopsis, and poster for the thriller down below.
"Award winner Russell Crowe stars in Unhinged, a timely psychological thriller that explores the fragile balance of a society pushed to the edge, taking something we've all experienced- road rage – to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late to work when she has an altercation at a traffic light with a stranger (Crowe) whose life has left him feeling powerless and invisible. Soon, Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who decides to make one last mark upon the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse that proves you never know just how close you are to someone who is about to become unhinged."
I don't know; this looks like one of the best movies of 2007. The whole reason this film is getting a ton of play is the announcement that it will play in theaters. It screams VOD release, but kudos to Solstice for taking Unhinged and going for it. I am sure they will make more money than they thought they would be going straight to streaming.
