DOOMED FLIGHT Amy Smart, Ryan Kwanten, Jerry Ferrara, Nicky Whelan, and Scout Taylor get spooked in 7500

Details Release Date: Aug 31, 2012; Genre: Mystery and Thriller; With: Leslie Bibb and Ryan Kwanten; Distributor: CBS Films

The Grudge (and its Japanese predecessor, Ju-on) director Takashi Shimizu, a kingpin in the jumpy ghost flick business, has somehow found a way to make commercial aviation even more horrifying. The trailer for 7500 doesn’t exactly show us what’s haunting Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), that girl from The Real World: San Diego, Turtle from Entourage, and Amy Smart on their doomed flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo, but you can tell from the melancholic rendition of ''Leaving on a Jet Plane'' that it’s very, very bad. Like, worse than additional checked baggage fees and crying babies bad.
