Julia Roberts Seeks Vengeance in First “Secret In Their Eyes” Trailer

STX Entertainment made a bold statement when it made this film one of its initial acquisitions as a new company.  The film is a remake of Juan José Campanella's 2009 film that took home the Best Foreign Language Oscar, Secrets In Their Eyes boasts a remarkable cast and a more than fit director to tackle the highly buzzed about project.

The film, shot in Los Angeles, centers around a tight-knit group of FBI investigators, Ray (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Jess (Julia Roberts), along with their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Nicole Kidman), that is torn apart when Jess's daughter is discovered brutally murdered.  Fast forward 13 years and Ray believes he has uncovered a lead that will lead to justice for Jess and her daughter.  But no one is ready for the secret that will reveal the destructive effects that vengeance can have on a human soul.

The film has a lot to live up to, especially considering the original took home an Oscar just six years ago.  Based on this first look, it appears that director Billy Ray is up to the challenge.  The film hits theaters on October 23rd.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
