Harrowing trailer for Margin Call director J.C. Chandor’s All Is Lost

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have released the first trailer for Margin Call director J.C. Chandor’s All Is Lost.

The film stars Robert Redford as a man cut adrift, alone in a 39-foot yacht and in the path of a storm.

All Is Lost is out in Ireland on December 26th.

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest.

Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.
