Watch: Trailer For Hijacking Thriller ‘Default’ Starring David Oyelowo

Watch: Trailer For Hijacking Thriller 'Default' Starring David Oyelowo

With roles in Christopher Nolan‘s “Interstellar,” J.C. Chandor‘s “A Most Violent Year” and Ava DuVernay‘s “Selma” in the next few months, David Oyelowo will have a lot of light of shining on him. Coming before all those movies is something far more low profile, and low-budget, the thriller “Default.” And the first trailer is here.

Directed by award-winning Colombian filmmaker Simon Brand (who made his name getting behind the camera for music videos for artists such as Shakira and Ricky Martin), the “Captain Phillips“-esque thriller follows an American news crew who have their charter flight hijacked by Somali pirates. As you’ll see, what follows looks to be a gritty, intense little picture that hopefully has brings some freshness to the premise.

“Default” hits VOD and opens in theaters on October 17th. Watch below.
