Focus Sets Indie Sci-Fi Film 'The Signal' for Summer Release in June

Briefly: Not to be confused with the other indie Sundance '07 horror thriller The Signal, a triptych set of stories, this is one full-length sci-fi indie feature that just premiered at Sundance 2014. Another one of our favorite Sundance films (my review) this year finally gets a release date, as Focus Features has announced that William Eubank's The Signal will hit limited theaters starting June 13th, 2014 this summer, with wider expansions June 20th and June 27th. In The Signal, three college students on a road trip across the Southwest experience a detour; the tracking of a computer genius who has already hacked into MIT and exposed security faults. The trio find themselves drawn to an eerily isolated area when suddenly, everything goes dark. The film stars Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp and Laurence Fishburne. More soon.
William Eubank directed Angel and Airwaves: LOVE, which I'm rather fond of (I'm fond of the band too, which probably helps). Its beginning, with a civil war sequence, was absolutely phenomenal. The rest wasn't AS good, but hopefully this taps into that level of film-making.
