Continuing along with our pre-coverage of the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival, above is the trailer for The Objective; directed by Daniel Myrick (co-director of The Blair Witch Project). This one has a very strange vibe to it; it's set in Afghanistan three days after 9/11 and it revolves around a group of Special-Ops soldiers and one reporter on a mission for Al Qaeda weapons when they "find themselves lost in a Middle Eastern 'Bermuda Triangle' of Ancient Evil," so says the synopsis on YouTube. From the looks of the trailer, it has a Predator meets Blair Witch Project in Afghanistan feel -- which, honestly, is pretty damn cool. Karina over at Spout says, "... it looks like Myrick has dropped the shaky-cam, subjects-as-spectactors-as-hunted faux-documentary thing in favor of stable cameras and polished HD." No snot or motion sickness? We're SO there!
