In the first trailer for Brendan Walsh’s Centigrade, a young couple must survive trapped inside of a small SUV in below freezing temperatures. The trailer slowly introduces the stakes moment by moment and introduces a near hopeless and entirely dire situation.
The official synopsis for Centigrade goes like this:
In 2002, a young American couple, Matthew (Vincent Piazza, “Boardwalk Empire”) and Naomi (Genesis Rodriguez, Quibi’s “The Fugitive”), travel to the arctic mountains of Norway. After pulling over during a snowstorm, they wake up trapped in their SUV, buried underneath layers of snow and Ice. As if the stakes aren’t high enough, Naomi is eight months pregnant in their frozen prison. With few resources, a dwindling food supply, and nothing but time, tension, blame, and personal secrets bubble to the surface. Matthew and Naomi realize they must work together to survive in a crippling battle against the elements, hypothermia, disturbing hallucinations, and plunging temperatures reaching as low as -30C.
The trailer alone is claustrophobia inducing. Added to that, can you imagine being trapped with your significant other in that situation? I mean, that alone might be the thing that drives you over the edge.
