The trailer for Carriers recently arrived online and appears to be the last breath of Paramount’s genre wing Paramount Vantage, but instead of Oscar-fare we are getting a PG-13 rated horror/thriller in the vein of 28 Days Later starring Lou Taylor Pucci, Chris Pine, Piper Perabo and Emily VanCamp.
There isn’t an official synopsis yet, but basically a virus has broken out and the infected (or “carriers”) are said to be the only thing more dangerous than the virus itself. The trailer has a certain edge to it, but the PG-13 rating may be a bit of a concern in this age where PG-13 thrillers have become quite tiresome. Let’s hope this one has a story as good as the trailer.
Take a peek below, it looks like it may be pretty good. Carriers hits theaters on September 4.
