Trailer: The Voices with Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds is a full-blown Son of Sam-style psychopath as Lionsgate (via EW) delivers the first trailer for The Voices, a darkly comedic thriller from Oscar-nominated Persepolis director Marjane Satrapi. Check out the clip below!
The Voices is a genre-bending film which centers around Jerry, a lovable but disturbed factory worker who yearns for the attention of a woman in accounting. When their relationship takes a sudden turn, we follow Jerry’s perspective as his talking pets, a sinister cat and benevolent dog, lead him down a fantastical, murderous path.
Besides taking the lead role of the disturbed Jerry, Reynolds also performs all the voices of the animals in the film, which co-stars Anna Kendrick, Gemma Arterton, Adi Shankar and Jacki Weaver. The Voices will be released in theaters and on VOD February 6.[via Comingsoon.net]

Plot: Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is an upbeat man with a sugary view of the world. He is also mentally ill, and has been avoiding taking his prescribed anti-psychotic medication. He hallucinates that his cat is telling him to be a serial killer, while his dog argues against the cat and insists that he is good. When Jerry starts reluctantly taking his medication again, he starts experiencing brief moments of lucidity in which he realizes that the reality of his life is already far more violent than he had perceived it to be.
