Hot off the heels from its appearance at New York City’s Comic-Con this past weekend comes film footage from The Bay, the newest film from the Academy Award-winning prolific director Barry Levinson, which has a narrative mired in the thriller genre focusing on a cover-up in a small town in Maryland in which an outbreak of mysterious proportions leads to an epidemic responsible for the deaths of over 700 townsfolk.
You can see our full coverage of the NYCC panel: NYCC 2012: Barry Levinson’s “˜The Bay’ Panel. The footage can be glimpsed below, along with the offical synopsis from Roadside Attractions, who is set to debut the film on November 2, 2012 in theaters and On Demand.
Barry Levinson, the Oscar-winning director who has been a cinematic jack of all trades for decades in the film industry, spanning genres with films like Diner, Rain Man, Good Morning Vietnam, Wag the Dog and the doomed from the start fantasy yarn Toys, dips his director’s cap into the supernatural well with The Bay, which was showcased in a panel on Saturday at the IGN Theater at New York Comic-Con.
The Bay, a seemingly compelling cover-up tale starring Kristen Connolly from Cabin in the Woods, speaks of a small town that buried what really happened when over 700 people perished during a tragedy that occurred years earlier. An investigative reporter tries to unlock the airtight sealing of the cover up, and in 24 hours, tries to unravel the mystery of the quotient with testimonials by people who were there, using eclectic and unorthodox methods as iPhone video recordings, Androids, and webcams to illustrate the events to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
