Ok, I’m not sure what the deal is with BLINDNESS, other then the fact it was helmed by the director of CITY OF GOD… but the basic premise and TV spots I’ve seen thus far scare the crap out of me. Now, Yahoo is offering you a chance to see the first 5 minutes of the film on-line! BLINDNESS was directed by Fernando Meirelles and stars Don McKellar, Julianne Moore (HANNIBAL), Mark Ruffalo (ZODIAC), Danny Glover (SAW) and Alice Braga. The film is based on Jose Saramago’s acclaimed novel that is set in motion when an epidemic of blindness sweeps through a contemporary city and pushes society to the brink of breakdown. It opens today in theaters! Visit the official website HERE and watch the first 5 minutes below!
