Magnet Plays the Grand Piano Stateside
Hot on the heels of the international poster and trailer for Grand Piano comes the news that Magnet, Magnolia's genre arm, has picked up the North American rights to the flick!
Below you'll find said international trailer and poster for director Eugenio Mira's thriller, Grand Piano, which opens overseas next month. Elijah 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."
