Millennium Entertainment has released a series of four character posters for Spanish writer-director Rodrigo Cortés' (Buried) upcoming psychological thriller, Red Lights. The movie stars Robert De Niro as Simon Silver, a legendary psychic who returns after a 30-year absence that followed the mysterious death of his biggest critic. His return prompts two paranormal fraud investigators (played by Cillian Murphy and Sigourney Weaver) to turn their debunking skills on Silver. However, they soon become obsessed with his seemingly inexplicable abilities. Elizabeth Olsen also stars and, based on the tagline on her poster, her character falls into the skeptic camp along with the characters played by Murphy and Weaver.
While some early reviews have complained that the movie plays a game of movie genre bait-and-switch, at least one reviewer compared Red Lights to classics like The Parallax View and Angel Heart, hailing it as a "unique cinema piece...with truly amazing performances."
