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.
