First Trailer for Joost & Schulman's Horror 'Viral' About a Creepy Virus
Fear what's inside. The Weinstein Company has debuted a trailer for the horror thriller Viral, produced by Jason Blum and directed by filmmakers Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman, who also made this year's film Nerve. Viral is about a young woman documenting her new life in quarantine after a virus kills off most people. She is also trying to protect her infected sister, which is what leads to all of the problems. The film stars Sofia Black-D'Elia, Analeigh Tipton, Travis Tope, and Michael Kelly. This almost seems like a weird mix between Species and Contagion, something like that, and it doesn't look so bad. Fire it up below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman's Viral, from TWC's YouTube:
Teenaged sisters Emma (Sofia Black-D’Elia) and Stacey (Analeigh Tipton) live a normal life, until their small suburban neighborhood is stricken with a mysterious parasitic virus. As the disease rapidly spreads throughout the town, the two band together to barricade themselves from infection. But it may already be too late – when the virus enters their home, the sisters are faced with an impossible choice: protect each other, or survive the virus. Viral is directed by American filmmakers Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman, of the films Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3 & 4, and Nerve previously. The screenplay is written by Barbara Marshall. The Weinstein Company will release Viral in select theaters on July 29th this summer. Anyone?
