‘Unhinged’ Trailer: Russell Crowe Gets Major Road Rage in Upcoming Thriller

Solstice Studios

Think twice before you decide you’re going to blare that horn at another car: you don’t know what that driver is like.

Russell Crowe is having a seriously bad day in the upcoming thriller Unhinged, a film that finds the Oscar winner playing a character simply credited as ‘The Man’ – a troubled dude who gets royally ticked off and decides to teach Rachel (Caren Pistorius, Mortal Engines) and her son Kyle (Gabriel Bateman, Child’s Play) a lesson.

It’s something like Falling Down meets Changing Lanes, and i’m so ready for it. Perhaps the trailer below shows off a little too much, but it looks like fun. The straightforward concept could be the right canvas for a tense-as-hell ride and Crowe appears to be chewing up that role nicely. This may be a jump into the mainstream for director Derrick Borte (London Town, American Dreamer), who is here working from a screenplay by experienced thriller writer Carl Ellsworth (Red Eye, Disturbia).

Unhinged, also starring Jimmi Simpson (Westworld), is set to hit US cinemas on July 1st.

Official synopsis for Unhinged:

Academy Award winner Russell Crowe stars in Unhinged, a timely psychological thriller that explores the fragile balance of a society pushed to the edge, taking something we’ve all experienced- road rage – to an unpredictable and terrifying conclusion. Rachel (Caren Pistorius) is running late to work when she has an altercation at a traffic light with a stranger (Crowe) whose life has left him feeling powerless and invisible. Soon, Rachel finds herself and everyone she loves the target of a man who decides to make one last mark upon the world by teaching her a series of deadly lessons. What follows is a dangerous game of cat and mouse that proves you never know just how close you are to someone who is about to become unhinged.
