Open Road Films released a full-length trailer to Eli Roth‘s highly anticipated The Green Inferno, opening on Sept. 5. The first teaser last month showed us images of a girl, lost in the Amazon, being prepared for dinner by a local tribesman. Here we see the story in full: A group of privileged New York City college students embarking on a trip to the Amazon in order to save the rain forest, only to realize a little too late (much like those in Roth’s 2007 slasher Hostel 2), they just shoulda stayed home. Based on Ruggero Deodato’s 1980 pulp cinema Cannibal Holocaust, Green Inferno kicks off the fall moviegoing season on September 5 — a hotbed month where horror faves such as the Jeepers Creepers franchise, Insidious Chapter 2 and The Last Exorcism reaped bloody riches.
Open Road Films is set to release the Eli Roth-directed The Green Inferno on September 5 after acquiring it at last year’s Toronto Film Festival. It’s Roth’s first directing gig since 2007′s Hostel 2, and he co-wrote the horror thriller with Guillermo Amoedo and produced the pic, which follows a group of students who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a tribe from extinction. Unfortunately, the tribe has other plans for them. Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy and Daryl Sabara star. Here’s the first trailer, which promises some Roth-esque craziness but reveals none of it:
Open Road Films will release Eli Roth‘s The Green Inferno on September 5. Roth directed, co-wrote (with Guillermo Amoedo) and produced the horror thriller which follows a group of students who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a tribe from extinction. Unfortunately, when the group arrives they are taken hostage by the very cannibals they are trying to protect. Lorenza Isso, Ariel Levy and Daryl Sabara star. In addition to Roth, pic is produced by Christopher Woodrow, Molly Connors, Miguel Asenio Llamas and Nicolás López. Also bowing on September 5 is Lionsgate drama Addicted.
Open Road Films is acquiring The Green Inferno, the horror thriller written and directed by Eli Roth that premiered over the weekend in Toronto in the Midnight Madness section. I’m hearing there is no minimum guarantee with a gross corridor but that the pic will get a wide release. Roth’s movies always make money with their low budgets, so Roth and his financiers are betting on the upside. CAA repped the deal. Green Inferno centers on student activists from New York who travel to the remote jungles of Peru in order to stage a protest but find they are on the menu when they encounter a tribe of cannibals. Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy and Sky Ferreira star in the film, produced and financed by Worldview Entertainment’s Molly Conners and Chris Woodrow. Simon Halls, Miguel Asensio and Nicolas Lopez also are producers. It marks Roth’s first feature directing effort since 2007′s Hostel 2 and extends his winning streak at Toronto. Last year he killed it selling a pair of titles he produced to Dimension Films for upwards of $2 million each: Aftershock, which he also starred in, and Clown.
