Josh Hutcherson's Robbery Attempt Goes Wrong in First Trailer for Constrained Thriller <i>BURN</i>

Momentum Pictures has released the first trailer for Mike Gan’s forthcoming thriller BURN, and things get scorched and bloody very, very quickly.

Starring Josh Hutcherson, Suki Waterhouse and Tilda Cobham-Hervey, the film follows meek and unstable gas station attendant Melinda (Cobham-Hervey), who tries to make a connection with a man (Hutcherson) robbing the gas station at gunpoint. From the trailer, it looks like the attendant is self-destructive and holds the man hostage in a break room after binding him with duct tape.

BURN also stars Harry Shum Jr. and Evil Dead’s Shiloh Fernandez, and marks writer-director Gan’s theatrical debut.

“In BURN, we explore what happens to deprived people who get bullied and rejected to a breaking point; fight back; then try to find themselves in the aftermath,” Gan said in a statement.

The film is set to arrive in theaters, digital and on demand on Aug. 23, and you can check out the trailer and the film’s poster below.
