The Signal

When Alex Billington and myself were at Sundance, we caught the awesome indie sci-fi flick The Signal. Now the film is poised for release this summer from Focus Features, and to kick off the hype machine, we have some viral goodies that just popped up. First off, the viral video led us to the website RUAGITATED.COM, and that's where we were given a special code to access the teaser poster featuring a pixelated Laurence Fishburne, and a few new first look photos from the film as well. This is seriously one cool little sci-fi flick with some impressive special effects and a cool, mysterious story. More details below!

Here's a screenshot of what you find when you access RUAGITATED.COM:

While you likely don't have your own user number, you can try typing things into the terminal at the website to see what happens. For example, when you type in the word "TRAILER," this video pops up for viewing:

We're not sure what else can be accessed, but that countdown is likely leading to the trailer this week.

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.
