Having seen a good portion of Alexandre Aja's Mirrors in the editing room, I was a bit disappointed in the official trailer that just came online. It felt completely generic, like a bad Ghost House Pictures movie. As a response, the good people at Fox threw us this juicy new featurette, which is a much better representation of the nightmarish, eye-popping nature of the flick. Beware of a few brief spoilers!
UPDATE: The trailer for Mirrors is now online and embedded below! Alexandre Aja's remake of of Mirrors is slowly pulling me in. Sure, it's a remake of a Korean ghost story and those are becoming old hat, but something about casting Kiefer Sutherland in it gives the film and edge that the others lack. Too bad we haven't seen a trailer yet, and the release is just a couple months away. Oh Aja! Why do you tease us!
Just found a couple of new stills and cool behind-the-scenes look at Alexandre Aja’s Mirrors in my inbox, and since Fox has been so cool about sharing info with us on the flick, I thought we’d share ‘em with you guys!
The idea of yet another Asian horror remake, especially from a French director, doesn’t exactly thrill anyone. But it’s a different story when the man pulling the strings is Alexandre Aja.
Well, it’s not the most exciting first look, but it’s something, right? Today the Spanish site Aullidos got the first look at Mirrors, the latest remake of Hills Have Eyes redux director Alexandre Aja.
This may seem a little confusing at first, but try to stay with me here. Koa Films is making a Piranha flick and Alexandre Aja is remaking the original Piranha (“New Piranha, Demons Remake!” – April 2007), OK? Two installments of the same film franchise were in the works, but Koa's was to be in 3D. Easy enough to follow, right?
The rumor’s been knocking about online for a few days now, but I guess since it’s in a trade paper, that must mean it’s official, right?
