I was incredibly bummed to hear the recent news that Eli Roth’s next film The Green Inferno has been pulled from the distributor’s release schedule, due to behind the scenes silliness that will likely prevent it from coming out this year, as originally planned. A damn shame, considering we were so close to the September 5th release date that I had been anxiously awaiting.
If the news was as big of a disappointment to you as it was to me, then you’ll be happy to know that a little treat has arrived here on the internet this week, which should hold you over until all the distribution nonsense is cleared up, and Roth’s latest is finally freed from the jungle.
Released today was a brand new red band trailer for The Green Inferno, which is absolutely jam packed with footage that wasn’t seen in any previous trailers. That footage is also aptly set to the tune of Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Welcome to the Jungle,’ which puts a fun spin on the cannibal carnage that makes it very much feel like an Eli Roth film.
If you’re asking me, this is one of the most awesome horror trailers of the year, and I’m pretty damn sure you’re going to feel the same way!
Written and directed by Roth, The Green Inferno follows a group of student activists who travel from New York City to the Amazon to save the rainforest. However, once they arrive in this vast green landscape, they soon discover that they are not alone… and that no good deed goes unpunished.
