First five minutes of Blindness

I love when studios release the first few minutes of their movies because in those 5 or 10 minutes, you can tell a lot about a movie: plot, basic themes, characters, and most importantly if you should dish out $8 on opening weekend. The BLINDNESS trailer pretty much convinced me to surrender my hard earned cash, but this 5 minute clip sealed the deal.

In the movie, a city is ravaged by an epidemic of blindness (yes, people suddenly going blind). The premise reminds me a bit of CHILDREN OF MEN in that it explores how society can crumble when a simple thing that we take for granted everyday is taken away. The clip certainly puts this in perspective by showing us how just one guy afflicted by this disease can bring about chaos. Multiply that by a few hundred. The movie opens tomorrow but you can check out the clip right now!
