Red Lights trailer rattles the table

Posted by CB Droege

Millennium Entertainment has released a new trailer for its upcoming paranormal thriller, Red Lights.

The film follows a young paranormal debunker, played by the up-and-coming Cillian Murphy, who is chasing down the truth about the most famous and celebrated paranormalist in the world.

Frankly, the film doesn’t appear to be particularly scary, but does seem like it will be pretty intense, if you’re into that sort of thing, and with a cast like this - including veteran, multi-award winning film actors Sigourney Weaver and Robert DeNiro - it would be hard for it to go wrong.

 

The official synopsis is thus:

Veteran paranormal researchers Dr. Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver) and Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) debunk fraudulent claims of ghost whispering, faith healing and other psychic phenomena by detecting what Matheson calls "red lights," the subtle tricks behind every staged supernatural occurrence. But when the legendary blind psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro) comes out of retirement after 30 years, his once-fearless adversary Matheson warns Buckley to back off, fearing reprisal from the powerful Silver.

Determined to discredit Silver, Buckley and his star student (Elizabeth Olsen) use every tool at their disposal to uncover the truth behind the charismatic, spoon-bending, mind reader. But Buckley is forced to reexamine his own core beliefs as his quest builds to a mind-blowing conclusion in this taut psychological thriller from award-winning writer and director Rodrigo Cortés ("Buried").

Red lights hits theaters July 13th, 2012.
