Nicole Kidman (Before I Go to Sleep)

S.J. Watson's debut novel "Before I Go to Sleep" follows a woman suffering from anterograde amnesia: each day, she wakes up with no idea of who she is and must put together the pieces from a journal she has been keeping.

In "Memento," Christopher Nolan's remarkably artful amnesia film, Guy Pearce used Post-it notes, Polaroids and tattoos on his own body to solve a murder.  In "Before I Go to Sleep," Christine, the protagonist, tries to find the truth behind the attempt on her own life that caused her amnesia, while being guided (or perhaps manipulated) along the way by her husband and doctor.

Rowan Joffe ("Brighton Rock") directed the film adaptation of Watson's novel, due out September 12 in the U.S.  The film stars Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong and is produced by Ridley Scott.  Check out the first trailer for "Before I Go to Sleep" below, as well as its striking poster, after the jump.

    Nicole Kidman is so generic and bland now. Her British accent doesn't sound British and her lips look weird. And Dr Nash isn't supposed to be coming on to her, it's supposed to be the other way around. This film is going to be so average.
