Movie Preview: Awake


Strangely, it appears that Awake was originally in production years ago, and is now scheduled to open November 30 but hasn't really been on anyone's radar at all. It stars Jessica Alba, Hayden Christensen and Terrence Howard, yet nobody's been talking about it — until now with the release of a full-length trailer.

The movie doesn't look like a total gem, and yet the trailer seriously freaked me out by tapping into a major fear. Christensen plays a man who experiences "anesthetic awareness." He goes under anesthesia for his operation but is still aware of everything around him. Terrence Howard plays his surgeon friend who operates on him, and Jessica Alba plays the confused wife. There looks to be an element of the supernatural to it all as well. To check out the trailer for Awake and tell me what you think,

Hayden and Jessica Alba look so much better together than Hayden and rat face Rachel Bilson in Jumper.

Seems like an OK idea, but I could never see anything with Jessica Alba in it.

I'm sure this will be a really good, intense movie. However, that whole scene where he is pulling the tube out of his throat is what is freaking me out the most. I probably will not be seeing this one.

Kinda reminds me of that recent episode of Grey's - only he was meant to be awake and this guy wasn't.

that is my university (Fordham university in ny) in the trailer, lol. The part where he is outside of the glass doors with the blue egdes. That's funny I didn't even know they had filmed a movie here.
