"He's one guy... and there's three of us!" Remember the Ryan Reynolds' film Buried set entirely in a coffin? Take the guy who wrote that, combine his ideas with Phone Booth, and you've got ATM, his newest "stuck-in-one-place" thriller about three coworkers who get trapped in an ATM booth by a menacing man outside. Thanks to The Playlist for finding the first official trailer for ATM, directed by David Brooks from Chris Sparling's script, starring Alice Eve, Josh Peck (from The Wackness) and Brian Geraghty. This looked okay until it gets really cheesy with the water and parka man hacking up people, but it could be fun. Enjoy!
Watch the first official trailer for David Brooks & Chris Sparling's ATM, via Playlist:
On a late night visit to an ATM booth, three friends and coworkers (Peck, Eve, Geraghty) end up in a desperate fight for their lives when they become trapped by an unknown man standing ominously outside.
ATM is the feature directorial debut of David Brooks, a producer and director of a short titled Gone from 2009 previously. The screenplay was written by up-and-comer Chris Sparling, who wrote Buried and An Uzi at the Alamo previously. While this hasn't premiered at any film festivals or shown anywhere else yet, IFC Midnight already has distribution but hasn't set an official release date at the moment. ATM was filmed up in Winnipeg, Canada last year, so we expect to see it arrive in theaters by the end of this year. Thoughts?
