It's going to be a long summer of explosions, CGI and dick jokes, as your stomach sours from too much buttery popcorn and your brain hurts from endless 3D spectacles.

Closed Circuit

It's going to be a long summer of explosions, CGI and dick jokes, as your stomach sours from too much buttery popcorn and your brain hurts from endless 3D spectacles. But capping off the season will be a movie that will hopefully have some smarts, and it at least promises some strong talent in a compelling picture. 

The first trailer has landed for "Closed Circuit," and it brings a script penned by "Eastern Promises" scribe Steve Knight and has John Crowley ("Boy A") directing. Eric Bana and Rebeca Hall take the lead playing two ex-lovers and lawyers who are tasked with defending someone accused of setting off a bomb in downtown London in a terrorist case. But it's far from an open and shut case. There's certainly some strong talent here (Riz Ahmed, Jim Broadbent, Ciarán Hinds, Julia Stiles) but we really hope this trailer just didn't explain the whole plot, but it seems there are more than a couple twists revealed here.

Anyway, we're eager to see it nonetheless. "Closed Circuit" arrives on August 28th.
