Guilty As Charged

Well forget that measly lil' glimpse of The Guilty we got last week -- today comes the first full trailer, and it looks to me like we're getting what we were hoping to get, i.e.e two hours of nothing but Jake Jake and more Gyllenhaal sitting behind a desk looking tense. That's what the original film was -- just with Jakob Jakob and more Cedergren in the place of Jake Jake and more Gyllenhaal -- and that's the formula that worked once so why eff with it? When this remake was first announced, along with a starry cast of names -- Ethan Hawke, Paul Dano, Riley Keough, Peter Sarsgaard -- we'd worried that writer-director Antoine Fuqua had opening it up in mind; this trailer puts that to rest. To bed. Jake, in bed. Wait what was I talking about? oh right here's the trailer.

The Guilty hits theaters on September 24th and Netflix on October 1st; it's also playing TIFF next week, and I plan on reviewing it from there so stay tuned...
