Watch: Brit Marling Gets in Deep with 'The East' in Theatrical Trailer
One of the films that impressed us at Sundance this past January was The East, another collaboration from director Zal Batmanglij and co-writer and star Brit Marling (Another Earth). Taking some cues from their other cult collaboration, the Sundance selected Sound of My Voice, the film takes an intelligence operative (Marling) and sends her into the depths of a radical environmental anarchist collective who has been targeting major corporations and planning dangerous attacks to teach them unforgettable lessons. But the group, including Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard turns out to be more than just some terrorists. Now the first theatrical trailer is here, and you don't want to miss this summer thriller. Watch!
Here's the theatrical trailer for Zal Batmanglij's The East, originally from Apple:
In The East, Sarah Moss (Brit Marling) is a brilliant operative for an elite private intelligence firm whose top objective is to ruthlessly protect the interests of their A-list corporate clientele. She is assigned to go undercover to infiltrate an anarchist collective known for executing covert attacks upon major corporations. Living amongst them in an effort to get closer to their members, Sarah finds herself unexpectedly torn between two worlds. The East is the second feature from up-and-coming filmmaker Zal Batmanglij (of Sound of My Voice previously), who co-wrote the script with Brit Marling. This premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and is being released by Fox Searchlight this summer on May 31st. Interested?
