You have gotta love Elijah Wood. Having cemented himself into the hearts of moviegoers everywhere with The Lord of the Rings franchise, he then decided to revel in the horror genre; and we applaud him for that tenfold! Next up for Wood?
Below you’ll find the international trailer and poster for director Eugenio Mira’s thriller, Grand Piano, which opens overseas next month. Wood stars along with John Cusack.
Taking a page out of the book of incredible film history feats like HIGH NOON, the bulk of the movie takes place in near-real time over the course of a high stakes classical music concert. It’s here that our hero makes his long-awaited return to performing after being stricken with stage fright at a show five years ago. Lured by the chance to honor his long-time instructor in a program showcasing some of his hardest works, the reluctant musician accepts the concert, knowing full on that it means tackling the infamous “unplayable piece.” The lights go down and the concert begins with a few warm-up selections, but something strange is happening inside the score on the piano. As the pages are turned, text begins to appear, defining a very clear threat – “Play a wrong note and you die.”
