Buried poster

We got our first look at Ryan Reynolds in the new thriller BURIED back in August. Now, on the heels of the revelation that the movie will receive its world premiere at Sundance, we get our first look at the official poster.

Pictured above, it's one of the few horizontal posters I've seen, but that makes perfect sense considering the subject matter. I'm the film, "a U.S. contractor (Ryan Reynolds) working in Iraq awakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap."

The movie features a single location: the coffin. Though I think the art of the perfect buried alive/coffin escape scene was perfected in KILL BILL, I can't wait to see what Spanish director Rodrigo Cortés does with the movie. Read on to see two rejected BURIED posters that didn't make the cut.
