An eerie vibe - The East - Official Trailer
I get a pleasantly eerie vibe from this trailer for The East, a new thriller with Alexander Skarsgard.
I think it kind of suggests there's always a way to find a fresh take on a genre. The plot involves an undercover operative falling for the leader of an eco-terrorist group.
We've seen that plotline before, of course. Betrayed with Debra Winger comes to mind. But harnessing our familiarity with the activities of Anonymous and other elements of our current moment, it looks new, tense and exciting.
Definitely on my "To See" list.
