When 'Groundhog Day' goes really, really wrong
As I gear up for Toronto, I'm really second-guessing the choices I've made about what to see, and I am keeping my ears open for any buzz about movies playing, and I'm watching trailers trying to see what really jumps out at me. I'm also seeing as many films as I can before going up there, so I can have reviews ready for things like "Fubar II," "Let Me In," "Stone," and "Easy A," freeing me up to see even more films at the actual festival.
Since this is the first year I'll have a press badge for Toronto, I plan to use it constantly, and I've already scoped out wifi spots around the theater where all the press screenings will be, hoping to find a spot I can sneak away to quickly between films.
I'll have a full preview piece of the festival and what I'm seeing later this week, but for now, I'm pleased to bring you the debut of one of the Toronto trailers, for a film called "Repeaters".
I have a feeling you'll hear "it's a really dark 'Groundhog Day'" used a lot when describing this film. I love that you can go to one festival and see things like this and "Black Swan" and "127 Hours" and "The Illusionist" and "Super," that range of stuff. Keeps every day interesting.
Here's part of the official synopsis, edited to preserve some mystery:
