Must Watch: First Trailer for Fantastic Indie Sci-Fi 'The Signal' Arrives
Following yesterday's viral reveal of the teaser poster and new first look photos for the Sundance selected sci-fi film The Signal, the first trailer has finally arrived. Thankfully, this full trailer is a tease in every sense of the word. We get a vague sense of the story, but the mystery is preserved and all of the cool twists and turns are kept under wraps. It has a flares of Chronicle and The Matrix, though Laurence Fishburne is in the interrogation role this time as Brenton Thwaites finds himself confined in some sort of strange base for an unknown reason. Alex loved this film at Sundance, and we can't wait for you to see it. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for William Eubank's The Signal, originally from Apple:
The Signal is directed by William Eubank (Love), who also co-wrote the script with newcomers Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio. Nick (Brenton Thwaites) and Jonah (Beau Knapp) are MIT freshmen and serious hackers. While driving through Nevada with Nick’s girlfriend, Hailey (Olivia Cooke), they follow rival hacker Nomad’s clues to a location 180 miles away. After a terrifying confrontation with Nomad in the desert, the trio regain consciousness in captivity, are forced to confinement and discover they are part of something unbelievable. Focus Features releases the Sundance selected film in limited theaters June 13th.
