Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts co-star in the Billy Ray-directed thriller, which is set for an awards-friendly October release. The official synopsis reads: “A tight-knit team of rising FBI investigators – Ray (Ejiofor) and Jess (Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Kidman) – is suddenly torn apart when they discover that Jess’s teenage daughter has been brutally and inexplicably murdered.”
Remakes are always a risky proposition, but the talent that’s been assembled for “Secret In Their Eyes” is substantial enough to give us hope. And the film’s newly-released trailer (above) is rich with the levels of tension and emotion that made the original so powerful.
Watch the trailer above. “Secret In Their Eyes” his theaters on October 23.
