Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, and Matthias Schoenaerts play cheating husbands who all secretly buy a loft apartment in which they can safely screw around. Then a woman turns up dead. Pretty classic murder mystery set up. Let’s watch!
I like mystery stories but this doesn’t look too terribly original. Still, it might surprise. Apparently this was filmed 2+ years ago and then shelved. That’s never a good sign. The Loft, which director Erik Van Looy remade from his own 2008 Belgian film Loft, is coming out 23rd January 2015. So you have roughly a month to find the original and watch it before watching this remake.
Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness) and James Marsden (2 Guns) star in the tense psychological thriller THE LOFT, the story of five married guys who conspire to secretly share a penthouse loft in the city–a place where they can carry out hidden affairs and indulge in their deepest fantasies. But the fantasy becomes a nightmare when they discover the dead body of an unknown woman in the loft, and they realize one of the group must be involved. Paranoia seizes them as everyone begins to suspect one another. Friendships are tested, loyalties are questioned and marriages crumble as the group is consumed by fear, suspicion and murder in this relentless thriller.
