Video Trailer For The Oxford Murders Starring Elijah Wood

The Oxford Murders Trailer: Murder by Numbers

Remember when Elijah Wood was a nerdy high school kid trying to track down a murderous alien in The Faculty? Well he's taking another stab at playing a student trying to solve a mystery in the new thriller The Oxford Murders. Wood stars as a grad student who discovers a dead woman's body and sets out to uncover her murderer with help from his logic professor (John Hurt). To give them clues, the killer is marking each of his victims with symbols for the teacher and pupil to decipher — before he adds even more innocent people to his tally.

Normally a movie like this would give me the heebie-jeebies, but I'm intrigued by the mathematical component (whatever, call me a nerd). After making the rounds overseas, the film is finally getting distribution in the US Aug. 6. Watch the preview when you
