A trailer has been released, this week, for The Vanishing. Previously titled Keepers, this thriller stars: Gerard Butler (Hunter Killer), Peter Mullan ("Ozark") and Connor Swindells. In the story, three lighthouse keepers start their six week shift, on an isolated island. While on duty, they encounter several missing men and a strange box. Now, greed is leading to paranoia as the men struggle to survive. The Vanishing is the feature film debut for Danish director Kristoffer Nyholm ("The Killing"). And, the film's first trailer awaits below.

Saban Films will show the film in the United States. This is a Cross Creek Pictures and Mad as Birds production. And, the film will show on Digital and in theatres in early 2019 (January).

Director Nyholm has talked about this picture, in a recent interview. On the film and its theme: "these men are the strong and unique characters at the heart of this story, which is a journey from innocence to animalistic survival...and will be...terrifying to watch!" These characters devolve into something more sinister as the film progresses.

Fans of psychological thrillers will want to keep The Vanishing on their radars. Though somewhat reminiscent of Xavier Gens' Cold Skin (2018) and Netflix's recent Apostle (2018), this title takes a more humanistic approach to its lurking threat. More details on The Vanishing are below.

Release Date: January, 2019 (Digital, Limited Theatrical).

Director: Kristoffer Nyholm.

Writers: Joe Bone, Celyn Jones.

Cast: Gerard Butler, Peter Mullan, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson.
