Elijah Wood, John Hurt and Leonor Watling in The Oxford Murders trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
To be honest with you, I don’t even think this film is going to be released in theaters. I haven’t heard much about it, but since I hadn’t seen a preview for it, I figure it deserved a post. The film is about a young student that befriends an older professor after they discover a murdered woman and a riddle that tells them who will be murdered next. The film stars Elijah Wood, John Hurt, Leonor Watling and Julie Cox. Alex de la Iglesia directed from a script he wrote.
This has that B-movie feel to it and someone needs to tell Elijah Wood that he’ll never be able to pull off the tough guy role. He may be a good actor, but he comes off young, whiny and he seems like kind of a sissy. People have gone their whole careers with those types of roles, so he shouldn’t stress too much.
