VOD is where it’s at these days. In recent weeks, various titles have been scheduled to land on-demand before opening in theaters, from Lars von Trier’s four-hour-long sex epic Nymphomaniac to the Sharlto Copley-starring mind-bender Open Grave. The trend seems like it’ll only continue growing through next year, with simultaneous VOD-theatrical release dates being added to the calendar on a daily basis.
One film taking that road to release is Reasonable Doubt, which stars Dominic Cooper and Samuel L. Jackson. Today, we have the first trailer for the movie, clearing up a few plot aspects and promising a very fast-moving thriller. Check it out below:
Though the film’s plot reminds me an awful lot of The Lincoln Lawyer, the presence of capable stars like Cooper and Jackson suggest that Reasonable Doubt might turn out decently. The trailer certainly plays up the cat-and-mouse angle, as well »

Reasonable Doubt is a serial killer thriller with a great hook. After driving home drunk, a prosecutor (Dominic Cooper) accidentally hits a man and flees the scene. However, the man is found dead the next day having been slaughtered by a suspected serial killer (Samuel L. Jackson). Cooper finds himself in a difficult situation where his investigation into the truth ould very well ruin his reputation and his life.
The idea for the film is great, but the trailer gives away far too much. There are at least 3 or 4 points that would have been wonderful twists throughout the film, and it could have been ambiguous as to whether Jackson was guilty or if it was just Cooper’s guilt trying to convince him otherwise. Hopefully the film will still manage a few twists and turns, or at least remain tense and involving. You can check out the poster and stills »

A District Attorney's life is turned upside down after a fatal hit-and-run accident in the first trailer for Reasonable Doubt. Dominic Cooper stars as Mitch Brocken, the attorney who flees the scene after running a man over, when the authorities pin the crime on Clinton Davis (Samuel L. Jackson), who they believe is a serial killer. When Mitch realizes that the victim was really running away from Clinton, a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse ensues. Erin Karpluk and Gloria Reuben co-star in this upcoming thriller, debuting in limited release and on VOD formats January 17.
It seems there was a casualty as a result of Orphan Black’s success on BBC America. While Tatiana Maslany was dazzling audiences with her ability to play five different characters at once, another drama was quietly burning out. Copper was the big, bright star on BBC America once upon a time. But everyone seems to have forgotten about it and as a result it has received an almost unjust cancellation. I say almost unjust because, while it sucks that a good series is being taken off the air because of a silly thing as low ratings, it’s important to acknowledge that something about the show pushed viewers away rather than attracting more.
