'City of Ember' Trailer: Like 'Escape from New York' but Less Criminal Statey

May 16, 2008


The problem with American-made underground bunker cities is that the generators always seem to die after a couple hundred years. Unfortunately, it looks like it's about that time for Ember--a city whose only source of electricity comes from a failing hydroelectric unit--when a young girl finds a clock counting down to nothing. "What would count down to nothing?" she asks. "Sounds like doomsday." Or an egg timer. Now it's up to her, her friend, mayor Bill Murray, and Tim Robbins to find a way out. If you've seen Shawshank Redemption, you know this won't be an issue for Tim Robbins, so relax and enjoy this new trailer. (Thanks, Joe.)
