The latest from director Phillip Noyce is a thriller starring Naomi Watts. Entitled The Desperate Hour, it unfolds in real time, 24 style.

The story goes a lot like this: “Recently widowed mother Amy Carr (Watts) is doing her best to restore normalcy to the lives of her young daughter and teenage son in their small town. As she’s on a jog in the woods, she finds her town thrown into chaos as a shooting takes place at her son’s school. Miles away, on foot in the dense forest, Amy desperately races against time to save her son.”

The tale was penned by Chris Sparling, who also wrote the 2020 action drama Greenland.

The Desperate Hour – formerly known as Lakewood – has a February 25 release date. Here’s the trailer:
