First Trailer For As Above, So Below
Paris! City of lights out...

24 April 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Legendary

People travel to Paris for all sorts of reasons. It’s the City of Lights. A bastion of romance. A haven for art-lovers. A focal point for culinary fans. But thanks to As Above, So Below, we also know there are those who just want toventure below, to the catacombs. What they find there is… well, you’ll have to wait and see. But they’re in the catacombs, people: it was never going to be a rainbow kitten party. 

Adding to the scare factor is the fact that this comes from the Quarantine/Devil sibling duo of Drew and John Erick Dowdle, brothers not so far known for happy stories where everything goes right.

A cast including Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman and Edwin Hodge make up a team of urban archaeologists who head 370 feet beneath the streets of Paris to the uncharted maze of bones below. They’re looking to discover something new, but what they really find will have them wishing they’d brought a change of trousers instead of lots of fancy lights and other equipment. A cave-in seals off their exit, and they’re soon forced to explore deeper than anyone has before, learning the true, terrifying secret that this city of the dead was meant to contain.

One of the first collaborations between Universal and Legendary under the companies’ new deal, As Above, So Below will be out in the UK on August 15. If you happen to be in Paris between now and then, the catacombs are really worth a visit as long as you have a tolerance for old bones. We suspect that, if the film is a success, the queues to see them may shrink somewhat.
