The Vanishing trailer: Gerard Butler and Peter Mullan battle for survival
Gerard Butler has spent a long time working in Hollywood and it's good to see him back on home soil in The Vanishing using his natural accent. Something seems to have changed recently as he has dialled down his performances in films like Den of Thieves and Hunter Killer, reminding us why he is such a charismatic on screen presence. Here he stars alongside the always magnificent Peter Mullan in a film based on a true story. You can check out the trailer for The Vanishing above right now - although, be warned, it does seem to reveal quite a lot about the film.
On an uninhabited island 20 miles from the rugged Scottish coast, three lighthouse keepers arrive for their 6 week shift. As they settle into their normal quiet routine, something unexpected, potentially life-changing occurs – they stumble upon gold. What follows is a tense battle for survival, fed by isolation, paranoia and greed, leading three honest men down a path to destruction.
Danish director Kristoffer Nyholm directs, with Connor Swindells, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson and Søren Malling featuring in the support cast.
The Vanishing is scheduled to get a UK relased in March 2019, although that may change at the start of the year.
