Kill Switch Trailer

"This is the opportunity to explore impossible frontiers." What the heck is this? Saban Films has released a very weird teaser trailer for a sci-fi film titled Kill Switch (not related to the Steven Seagal action film Kill Switch). This one is actually based on a POV concept short film called What's in the Box?, which a visual effects supervisor has turned into a feature-length film. And it still has some video game-esque POV shots in it. Dan Stevens stars, with Charity Wakefield, and Bérénice Marlohe. I don't even know what is going on in this trailer, only that Dan Stevens plays a pilot, and there's very weird sci-fi stuff happening. Fire it up.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Tim Smit's Kill Switch, direct from YouTube (via TMB):

Kill Switch Movie

A pilot (Dan Stevens) battles to save his family and the planet after an experiment for unlimited energy goes wrong. Kill Switch, formerly Redivder, is directed by Tim Smit, a former visual effects supervisor (The Fermi Paradox, Last Passenger, Tiger House) making his feature directorial debut with this film. The screenplay is written by Omid Nooshin and Charlie Kindinger. It's based on Smit's 2009 P.O.V. concept short What's in the Box?. This has not premiered at any film festivals before. Saban Films will release Kill Switch in select theaters starting June 16th this summer. For more info, visit the official website. Anyone?

    It took me three episodes of Legion before I realized it was the guy from The Guest. I knew I knew his face (and I love trying to figure it out before looking it up) but he looks so different when he's not a super buff sociopath. That said this teaser is fine but it really doesn't give me any idea what's supposed to be going on and I'll probably forget about this right up until it comes out. I understand the difference between a teaser and a trailer, but teasers really only seem to work when it's an established franchise or they're doing something completely unique.
  • The actor is fine. But the synopsis is not intriguing...It's confusing. And that's not a good thing. Teasers should tease, not confuse.

    Looks intriguing. I like the Dan Stevens (was great in The Guest but they should have let him bulk up or at least be sporting a tan in Beauty and the Beast) and really liked the FPS view that was used in Hardcore Henry (not that I imagine this could be as mental as HH).

    Bad aliens, again. Or at least it looks that way. I won't be intrigued but I might be amused at some point in the future with this ...

    Yet another sci-fi BLACK MIRROR type thing, that only proves these are better served as shorts, rather than features.
