Panic Room (2002)

Coming Out at 29 March 2002 in theaters.

Crime, Drama, Thriller

Panic Room is thriller film directed by David Fincher. The film stars Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart as a mother and daughter whose new home is invaded by burglars, played by Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto, and Dwight Yoakam. The script was written by David Koepp.

Koepp’s screenplay was inspired by news coverage in 2000 about panic rooms. The film was Fincher’s fifth feature film, following Fight Club (1999). Fincher and Koepp brought together a crew of people with whom each had worked before. The house and its panic room were built on a Raleigh Studios lot. Nicole Kidman was originally cast as the mother, but she left after aggravating a previous injury. Her departure threatened the completion of the film, but Foster quickly replaced Kidman. The filmmakers used computer-generated imagery to create the illusion of the film camera moving through the house’s rooms. Foster became pregnant during the shooting schedule, so filming was suspended until after she gave birth. The film’s production cost $48 million.

Recently divorced Meg Altman, and her eleven-year-old daughter, Sarah, move into a four-story brownstone in New York City’s Upper West Side. The house’s previous owner, a reclusive millionaire, installed a “panic room” to protect the occupants from intruders. The room is protected by concrete and steel on all sides and a thick steel door and has an extensive security system with multiple surveillance cameras, a public address (P.A.) system, and a separate phone line. On the night the two move into the house, Junior, the previous owner’s grandson; Burnham, an employee of the residence’s security company; and Raoul, a vicious hitman Junior recruited, break in. They are after $3 million in bearer bonds locked inside a floor safe in the panic room.
