You think you have a bad day.
As the pandemic ensues, road rage film Unhinged, starring Russell Crowe, opens on July 1st to mark the first theatrical film release. It is pending on state-by-state guidelines with their own public health department safety guidelines.
Solstice Studios may not be one of the major studios, but its strategy is sound to pivot against Warner Bros. Pictures’ Tenet and Disney’s Mulan later that month. It is still unclear whether the public will return back to the theaters this summer, but independent films have more to gain with smaller budgets.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Unhinged, a timely psychological thriller that explores the fragile balance of a society pushed to the edge, taking something we’ve all experienced—road rage—to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late to work when she has an altercation at a traffic light with a stranger (Russell Crowe) who life has left him feeling powerless and invisible. Soon, Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who decides to make one last mark upon the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse that proves you never know, just how close you are to someone who is about to become unhinged.
The film also stars Gabriel Bateman, Jimmi Simpson, and Austin P. McKenzie. Derrick Borte (American Dreamer) directed the film from a script written by Carl Ellsworth (Red Dawn, Disturbia).
Unhinged may be the welcome theatrical release during this pandemic crisis. Russell Crowe does look like a psycho you don’t want to cross. The trailer gives me vibes of the 90s psychological action flicks. At this point, I’ll watch anything in the theater seats again.
The film will be released on July 1st. Check out the trailer above.
