Paranoid Procedural with UK's CLOSED CIRCUIT
There is something inherently ominous with the aesthetic of all those camera-feeds in security conscious Londontown. Furious 6's London setting failed to properly make use of them, but they seem to be at the heart of the matter for Jon Crowley's (Boy AIntermission) mature information-technology thriller Closed Circuit. Eric Bana and CiarĂ¡n Hinds are aiming to catch urban terrorists (instead of planting the bombs as they did together in Spielberg's Munich) with the help of Rebecca Hall, Julia Stiles and Jim Broadbent. Looking to be a smidgen of 24, a hint of Bourne, and a dollop of Page 8, Closed Circuit seems to have a lot on offer with its trailer, hopefully the film with follow through in an appropriate adult fashion.

Two ex-lovers find their loyalties tested and their lives at risk when they are joined together on the defense team in a terrorism trial.

The film has an August release date in the US and Japan before a November bow on UK soil.

"Looking to be a smidgen of 24, a hint of Bourne,"

And dash of The Conversation (1974), spiced with Traitor(2008)......I wonder if there is going to be more courtroom drama in this film, not featured in the trailer Mr Halfyard?
Looks entertaining though, thanks for the trailer.
