Paul Walker has never had a huge amount of success outside the Fast & Furious franchise, but he’ll be hoping for more from The Hours. Now the first trailer for the movie has emerged, which sees him is desperate mode during Hurricane Katrina.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Before sunrise on August 29, 2005 Nolan (PAUL WALKER) arrives at a New Orleans hospital with his pregnant wife Abigail (GENESIS RODRIGUEZ) who has gone into early labor. What should be one of the happiest days of Nolan’s life quickly spirals out of control when the birth goes tragically wrong and Hurricane Katrina ravages the hospital, forcing an evacuation. Told to stay with his child, who is on a ventilator, Nolan and his newborn are soon cut off from the world by power outages and rising flood waters. When no one returns to help, Nolan faces one life-and-death decision after another, fighting to keep his daughter alive, as minute by agonizing minute passes, becoming unimaginable “Hours.”’
The movie will premiere at SXSW in March.
