The U.S. Trailer for The Outback


Australian for fear!

Two things strike me as funny about the trailer for The Outback, the Aussie import formerly known as Prey. One, the end of the trailer says “The Outback: Australian for Fear,” planting tongue firmly in cheek. Secondly, as the ensemble cast is identified with quick cuts and the actor’s names, Joe Hachem is seen sitting at a computer looking intense. The trailer then cuts to him playing solitaire. That’s the way you sell us on this character? Maybe he’s the comedic relief, but still…

Anyway, Xenon Pictures has picked the film up for U.S. distribution and a DVD release is planned for July 13. Jesse Johnson, Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Ben Kermode co-star.
