Back in February, we got a look at the SXSW Film Festival teaser trailer for Josh Duhamel's upcoming "Scenic Route" thriller. And today, we have the full version. Watch it below.
Plot: Mitchell (Duhamel) and Carter (Dan Fogler) are life-long friends who have drifted apart. They are on a road trip when their old pickup breaks down, leaving them stranded on an isolated desert road. As the relentless elements of the desert grind them down, they start to attack each other's life decisions with unwavering brutality. As they question who they are and who they could have been, their agitation leads to knife-wielding madness.
The new movie is directed by Kevin and Michael Goetz, and is set to hit theaters on August 23rd, likely in limited release.
Lance Henriksen was on last week's Hannibal, it's crazy that he has been in over 150 movies yet is mostly known for playing Bishop in ALIENS, Frank Black on MillenniuM, and the farmer guy from Pumpkinhead.
Btw I searched through a thousand movies of his, and the one I was referring to is called "Bone dry". It also starred the guy from the movie you recently watched, was it "interview with a hitman?". Luke Goss.
Lance is an absolute living legend. He said before that he does so many movies because he just loves acting. Bringing a writer's and director's vision to life has always made him happy. He even learned to read from reading scripts.
He is slowing down now because he is almost 74.
He also does a lot of clay tile artwork and pottery.
I met him at a scifi convention in DC in 1998 at a MillenniuM booth and talked with him almost 20 minutes, he was very friendly and mellow and signed the inside white part of my DVD of The Quick & The Dead and he laughed about shooting his death scene because Gene Hackman was not even on the set that day!
I like how they made this film into a buffet of violence though, to get people to see it and perhaps promote Duhamel, because he has zero lead presence, i.e., no one is going to see this film for him. So making it a spree of violence, as the description seems to indicate, will do wonders for filling theater seats, relatively.
