After a two year gap between the first trailer for Erik Van Looy’s The Loft, on today’s official trailer, we finally get a good glimpse of what’s to come from this slightly trashy drama. Starring James Marsden, Karl Urban, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet and Matthias Schoenaerts, five friends invest in a secret loft where they can indulge in all their extramarital affairs. All seems ideal until the body of a murdered, unknown woman appears in the loft, turning the cheating men against each other as their levels of paranoia and trust are stretched to the limits.
Despite the general premise promising some good tension, with some decent twists and turns, there’s little chance of audiences feeling particularly sorry for any of these untrustworthy men and already, we’re on the side of the mystery woman who appears to have set the guys up. With Urban and Marsden usually taking on likable parts and generally appearing to be nice guys in Hollywood, they’re definitely a selling point for an otherwise seemingly lackluster film. Also starring Rhona Mitra, Rachael Taylor and Isabel Lucas, The Loft hits theatres on January 23, 2015.
