Hayden Christensen's Vanishing on 7th Street gets a trailer

New sci-fi thriller from The Machinist director

A shiny new trailer for Vanishing on 7th Street, a sci-fi thriller starring Hayden Christensen, has hit the web.

Christensen stars as TV reporter Luke, a survivor caught up in a bizarre apocalyptic scenario: daylight seems to be diminishing, and people are literally disappearing in the darkness.

He joins forces with fellow survivors Thandie Newton and John Leguizamo, and they try to stay alive by keeping away from the shadows.

There are echoes of I Am Legend, but it's debatable whether or not Christensen will have the chops to carry it, though he does have a bit more company than Will Smith had.

The 'shadow hands' that show up towards the end of the trailer aren't exactly terrifying, but director Brad Anderson  has good previous form, having directed a super-skinny Christian Bale to atmospheric effect in The Machinist.

Check out the trailer below:

 

Vanishing on 7th Street doesn't have a release date at present, but it's expected to arrive in 2011.

      I am looking forward to seeing this movie, I like Brad Anderson's "slant" on things and I am a Hayden Christensen fan, he's a wonderful actor. I have read via reviews that Hayden and Thandie give great performances and Brad's views on this genre are intriguing. It will be released Feb. 18th but probably only in a few big cities, it goes VOD in January 7th or 8th. I'd much rather see it on the big screen but VOD is fine with me as long as I get to see it!!! Hayden must be busy on filming THE COLD by now. Hayden's fans love him and support him, he's one in a million!
