Watch: First Trailer for Netlix's Futuristic Time Loop Sci-Fi Movie 'ARQ'
"You don't have to believe me, but I need you to trust me." Netflix has debuted the first trailer for a sci-fi film called ARQ, produced by Netflix as one of their smaller productions (similar to Christopher Guest's Mascots). The film is about a unique technological device called the "ARQ", which an engineer invents and keeps in his own house. Apparently it can "deliver unlimited energy and end the wars that have consumed the world", but one day he wakes up and finds masked men in his house. They shoot him and leave him to die, but he wakes up alive repeating the same day, like Groundhog Day (the clock is an obvious reference). Robbie Amell stars with Rachael Taylor and a cast including Gray Powell, Jacob Neayem, Shaun Benson and Adam Butcher. This actually looks pretty cool, I'm very curious about checking it out. Enjoy.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Tony Elliott's sci-fi ARQ, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
In a dystopian future, an engineer trapped in a house and surrounded by a mysterious gang of masked intruders must protect a technology that could deliver unlimited energy and end the wars that have consumed the world. "Earth's future depends on a new technology, but the path to survival has a twist. Time's not up -- just in pieces." ARQ is both written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Tony Elliott, a writer-turned-filmmaker making his feature directorial debut after a few sci-fi short films (Entangled, Blind Spot) previously. The film was produced by XYZ Films and made for Netflix, and it will first debut on the streaming service starting September 16th this month. Get more info on the Netflix page here. Intrigued?
