An Interesting Teaser For 7500!! Stuck On A Plane With...???

Merrick here...
ABOVE: IGN's teaser for 7500, a new suspense piece from  Takashi Shimizu - director of THE GRUDGE and its sequel.  This one stars Jamie Chung (SUCKER PUNCH), Leslie Bibb (the first two IRON MAN movies and ZOOKEEPER), Amy Smart (the CRANK movies and SCRUBS), and the extremely awesome Ryan Kwanten (so hilarious and touching as Jason Stackhouse in HBO's TRUE BLOOD). This should be in theaters late Summer - Augustish I believe.  
I love the vibe here - but having recently seen George Miller's dazzling mini-epic NIGHTMARE AT 20, 000 feet (a segment of 1983's TWILIGHT ZONE movie), I have to wonder if anyone will ever equal or surpass that level of frenzied, claustrophobic, stuck-in-a-plane fucked-upness.  Maybe 7500 will do just that?  SNAKES ON A PLANE sure didn't...

    Ghosts on a Plane

    by Rev. Artemis Prime

    Looks like fun. Hopefully the ghosts/gobilins/gremilins whatever will pull Jamie Chungs shirt off before they kill her.

    Why the hate for the satire that was Snakes on a Plane?

    by irishraidersfan

    Was it a masterpiece? Hell, no - it reminded me of those fun, shlocky 80s movies like House, but completely taking the piss. Then again, US audiences don't seem to get that kind of humour...

  • Thanx Bay you wankstain. This Movie has no place in my life BTW.

    What, no obituary for Ian Abercrombie?

    by Jet Jaguar

    He was Mr. Pitt on Seinfeld, the Wiseman in Army of Darkness, and the voice of Palpatine in Star Wars: Clone Wars

    Fade to black fade up from black...

    by rawsleestak

    This had to be the cheapest trailer in the world to make, 50% of it is black. How much longer are the people cutting trailers these days gonna think this overused movie trailer cutting style is cool or clever or new or that people aren't becoming very aware that it's used in almost every trailer now and screams "I couldn't think of anything better so I cut it like everyone else does"?

    It will be interesting to see how this project compares to both Superman III (link) and the new Sesame Street Box Set (link). Although I also enjoyed Taxi Driver (link) and The Passion of the Christ (link).

    Amy Smart was in 2 episodes of Scrubs

    by matthooper8

    Is she really known for that?

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 11:20 a.m. CST

    bleh-that looked awful

    by Jack Desmondi

    A ghost on a plane? What the fuck's the point in that? And then just to scare and fuck with the passengers? If this was a typical Japanese "vengeful spirit", why wouldn't it just blast out the gasoline tank once it was over open water and couldn't get back and have everyone just go down screaming and die? This is some stupid shit.

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 11:22 a.m. CST


    by mojorising74 what I will repeatedly yell at the screen during the viewing of this. To what I can only assume will be the delight of those around me.

    Zombies (Flight of the Living Dead) on a Plane WASN'T Fun.

    by Jack Desmondi

    I watched it for free on either Chiller network of SyFy a couple months ago. The makeup and direction were "OK", but the CGI effects were shitty and the script was repetitive and tiresome. I fucking hated it--and this is someone who watched it for FREE.

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 11:24 a.m. CST

    So the Grudge...

    by MamboMan

    invaded Final Destination franchise. Death is coming for you... and she looks like a creepy Japanese schoolgirl ghost...

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 11:24 a.m. CST

    Horrifying choice of music for a shit trailer!!!

    by notcher

    I think whoever was supposed to edit the trailer together overslept and just through that shit together. What a total crapfest. No interest. Oh, and I work for an airline, electronics don't take down aircraft but they do fuck up the navigation systems, COMPLETELY TRUE.

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 11:33 a.m. CST

    Dear Hollywood. Quick camera cuts do not = scary.

    by The_Maltese_Vulcan

    And The Grudge sucked monkey balls.

    That OTHER Shatner horror on a plane film...

    by solitaire

    Anybody else ever see Horror at 37,000 feet? It was a tv movie with charles Napier as the captian and Shatner as a cowardly drunk. It was about a flight from england back to the states, and some gamook thinks it will be smart to ship a haunted druid alter home in the cargo hold. Hauntings and hijinks ensue, including an attempted exorcisim, a hooded figure and a frozen dog. It scared the shit out of me as a kid. I'd say this has more than a little bit owed to that film.

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 11:35 a.m. CST

    'interesting and 'teaser' are not two words i'd link to this...

    by cameron

    ..'fucking' and 'shit' seem more fitting. To me people, just to me.

  • seen it and done it!

    How the fuck am I supposed to take anything seriously that stars that fucking guy?

  • It drives me up the fuckin' wall. It's like watching a film through someone else's eyes, but they keep blinking.

    Speaking of Snakes on a plane.

    by lsrdsc

    Is that the movie that this called "Brilliant": and hyped the total shit out of?

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 1:41 p.m. CST


    by yourebreakingthejacket

    Yup, I remember that one from way back. It was scary when I was a kid. The Hooded figure was creepy and I remember the lady crying about her dog.

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 1:44 p.m. CST

    Y A W N !

    by Sluggolicious

    'Interesting?' Really?! Invisible threat throws people around a plane somehow magically passes for 'horror.' If they'd had a budget that didn't require cheating around the fact there's no 'creature' and the passengers were trapped with a guy/girl who transformed into a say . . a werewolf? . . then it might've actually been interesting.

  • I like this kind of basic scareathon. Think this'll be good (for what it is).

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 2:59 p.m. CST

    The plane was built on an idian burial ground!

    by Big Bad Clone

    7500. 7 + 5 + 0 +0 = angry ghosts hurting innocent people for no damn reason.

  • I've always wanted to see that one done again, even though the original Twilight Zone one and the one from the TZ movie were both great. I think it could work as a nice brisk 90 minute suspense/horror flick. Maybe build up to the gremlin on the wing a bit longer due to having more time to play with the pacing.

    Captain, I think we've picked up a Longelier.

    Jason Stackhouse is an epic himbo

    by smackfu

    The first time I saw him on True Blood, frantically masturbating to CNN Iraq war updates, I knew I was home.

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 5:13 p.m. CST

    I'm ashamed to admit

    by smackfu

    my favorite recent horror film is Grave Encounters. It's a found footage deal about a 'ghost hunters' type tv show that runs into the real thing. I became jaded to horror films a loooong time ago, and this was the first one in a long time that actually gave me the heebie jeebies. It's cheesy and unoriginal, but it did the trick.

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 5:49 p.m. CST

    Looks like fun.

    by MisterManReturns

    And Google the "Nightmare" TV movie - it's online.

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 5:51 p.m. CST

    And excellent use of the song.

    by MisterManReturns

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 6:40 p.m. CST

    Watch it with with sound off

    by Player01

    I'm at work, and I watched this with the sound off so no one knows. And you know something, without the sound, this trailer is not remotely scary or interesting, so I'm guessing it's completely shit.

    Ghost of John Denver

    by artdude102

    The ghost of John Denver terrorizes the flight for such a crappy drool inducing version of his song.

    Butterfly Effect was good

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    very good along the lines of Donnie Darko... but it has Ashton in it and people here hate guys who girls would want to suck off unless its Bale, Gibson, or maybe even Brian Cox PS: is the Brian Cox meme over yet?

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 8 p.m. CST

    Amy Smart was also good in Road Trip

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    mainly because she played a psycho slut who showed her boobs... it was weird seeing her go from the girl next door in Varsity Blues to a psycho slut in Road Trip... guess it was the blonde dye job

  • Jan. 31, 2012, 8:25 p.m. CST

    Jamie Chung would look great

    I'm right there....

    by Clio

    If it's terror on an airplane, I'm buying a ticket. Snakes, zombies, freaking demons, you name it......I'll watch it. I know, I know, but I can't help it.....horrible things happening at 30,000 feet is deliciously appealing to me......even if it's just Jodie Foster losing her kid on a flight.
