Universal has been promoting the hell out of As Above, So Below on Twitter, but I have to say, the Thursday night press screening they’ve set up for the film here in Seattle isn’t typically a good omen considering I’ll probably be walking out of my screening 27 minutes before the first Thursday night screenings begin, not to mention East Coast moviegoers can probably see it before me.
However, this is a horror film and it’s another found footage film and so perhaps Universal just thinks it’s not a typical film for most critics. I tend to enjoy horror movies and while I’m tiring of the found footage genre I’m giving this one a go and hoping for the best.
Tonight I have for you an extended, three minute and 30 second red band trailer for the upcoming movie that takes place amidst the twisting catacombs that lie beneath the streets of Paris, a team of explorers venture into the uncharted maze of bones, uncovering the dark secret that lie within this city of the dead. Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman and Edwin Hodge lead the cast with Jon Erik and Drew Dowdle (Devil, Quarantine) directing.
Check out the trailer below and look for the film in theaters this Friday, August 29.
