Grand Piano Trailer Hits The Web's Stage
Elijah Wood must play for his life

We’ve all had those moments of stage fright or performance anxiety. But what happens if you’re already worried about screwing up and then some psycho threatens you and your loved ones if you do? That’s the basic premise between the new thriller Grand Piano, which has just put its first trailer online at Apple.

Elijah Wood stars in this one as Tom Selznick, the most talented pianist of his generation, who stopped performing in public because of his stage fright. Years after a catastrophic performance, he reappears in a long-awaited concert in Chicago. In a packed theater, in front of the expectant audience, Tom finds a message written on the score: “Play one wrong note and you die.” Without leaving the piano, Tom must discover the anonymous sniper’s motives and look for help without anyone realizing…

The sniper might be anonymous to Tom, but we know John Cusack when we hear (and later see) him. Grand Piano has already been praised as a De Palma-style thriller, so we’re hoping for high drama with a nice classical piano score. American audiences will see this one on demand on January 30, with a theatrical run planned for March 7. There’s no sign of a UK release date just yet.
