The trades have all confirmed Derrick Borte’s new psychological thriller, Unhinged, will be the first to test the waters as theaters begin to reopen for the first time since shutting down in March in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.. The announcement from Solstice Studios also highlights a look at the official trailer above, as well as the official poster at the bottom of the article featuring actor Russell Crowe.
Academy Award winner Russell Crowe stars in Unhinged, a psychological thriller that takes something we’ve all experienced- road rage – to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late getting to work when she crosses paths with a stranger (Crowe) at a traffic light. Soon, Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who feels invisible and is looking to make one last mark upon the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse that proves you never know who you’re driving next to.
Formerly releasing in September, Unhinged will instead release theatrically release on July 1, 2020, joining the current ranks of other summer theatrical releases such as Warner Bros. Pictures Christopher Nolan-directed Tenet (July 17), and Disney’s Mulan (July 24). Unhinged also stars Gabriel Bateman, Jimmi Simpson and Austin P. McKenzie, and is produced by Lisa Ellzey from a script by Carl Ellsworth. (Deadline)
