Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall bite off more than they can chew as defense lawyers for a bombing suspect in the upcoming thriller Closed Circuit. When they take on the case of a young man accused of setting off a bomb in a crowded London market, they dig too far and find out — via a nosy New York Times reporter (Julia Stiles) — that their client may have been recruited to be an informant by the British government, before "it all went wrong." Dun, dun, dun!
While I'm excited to see Riz Ahmed, a young actor who displays some real talent in this year's The Reluctant Fundamentalist, pop up here, Closed Circuit isn't really grabbing my attention. I like that it's exploring the idea that all those closed-circuit cameras can be used to help — or thwart — criminal cases, but I hope there are more twists than the ones already exposed in the trailer. The movie won't be in theaters until Aug. 28, but watch the trailer after the jump.
