A couple wakes up. The wife (Julianne Moore) goes to make some coffee. She brings a cup to her husband (Mark Ruffalo) in their bathroom, where he’s freaking out because he suddenly can’t see. Then we learn what’s really happening: Over 90 percent of the population has been struck blind, and the wife ends up being one of the few left who can still see. Directed by Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener), Blindness seems eerie enough, although this teaser makes it look like little more than a distaff take on I Am Legend. B
