Definitely calling to mind Phone Booth, Grand Piano finds Elijah Wood in the crosshairs of a sniper (John Cusack) who forces him to play a perfect piano concert or be killed. Wood plays a famous pianist who choked during a huge concert and is coming back to the stage after a long hiatus. If he plays one note wrong, the sniper will kill him and if he tries to alert anyone or leave the stage, his wife will die. I don’t know about you guys, but I love Phone Booth, mostly due to Keifer Sutherland and I don’t know if John Cusack can match that intensity with a mostly vocal performance, but we’ll see. The movie is opening March 7th in theaters and January 30th on VOD and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
