Synopsis >

The trailer for the Donnie Darko Blu-ray, which arrives in the UK on July 19th, 2010. Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhall) is a troubled teenager living with his family in seemingly idyllic suburban Maryland. A schizophrenic with a history of violence, he has recently stopped taking his medication and sleepwalks as a result. His parents, Rose and Eddie (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne) and his sisters, Elizabeth and Samantha (Maggie Gyllenhall and Daveigh Chase), worry about him. One night at dinner, Donnie and his sister get into a profane argument during which Elizabeth reveals she knows Donnie is no longer taking his medication. Rose confronts Donnie in his bedroom and he calls her a bitch. Guilty, Donnie resumes taking his medication. On October 2nd, however, he sleepwalks and meets Frank, a man in a menacing bunny costume. Frank tells him that in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds, the world will end. That night, a jet engine mysteriously crashes through the roof of the Darkos' house, destroying Donnie's room. Had he not been sleepwalking, he would have been killed. On the way to the office of Dr. Thurman (Katherine Ross), Donnie's therapist, Donnie and Eddie nearly run over Roberta Sparrow, also known as 'Grandma Death' (Patience Cleveland). A senile old woman who spends her days shuffling back and forth between her house and the mailbox across the street. Grandma Death whispers in Donnie's ear that all that lives ultimately dies alone. This greatly troubles Donnie, who worries that life has no meaning. A few days later, Frank appears to Donnie in a hallucination and encourages him to flood the private high school he attends by breaking open the water main with an ax. Donnie also embeds the ax in the head of the school's solid bronze statue of its mascot and spray paints 'They made me do it' on the sidewalk. School is canceled that day and Donnie walks home with Gretchen (Jena Malone), the new girl in school. S
