"What's the plan if the kid misses?" "I won't." Vertical Entertainment has followed-up the teaser trailer last week with the launch of the full trailer for this indie sci-fi feature titled Code 8, an intriguing mix of genre ideas involving futuristic robot cops and people with special powers. Code 8 is a feature adaptation of Jeff Chan's own short film also titled Code 8 (watch here). The film is about a desperate young man possessing special powers who clashes with a militarized police force after committing a petty crime. Starring Robbie Amell, along with Stephen Amell, Greg Bryk, Kari Matchett, Sung Kang, Alex Mallari Jr., Peter Outerbridge, and Shaun Benson. This is a solid feature debut from an up-and-coming filmmaker with some cool ideas, and if any of this intrigues you, you definitely need to give it a look when it arrives this fall.

Set in a world where 4% of the population is born with varying supernatural abilities, but instead of being billionaires or superheroes, they face discrimination and live in poverty, often resorting to crime. Connor Reed (Robbie Amell), a power-enabled man, is struggling to pay for his ailing mother's health treatment. Fighting to earn enough money as a day laborer, Connor is lured into a lucrative criminal world by Garrett (Stephen Amell) who works for Lincoln City's reigning drug lord, Marcus Sutcliffe (Greg Bryk). Garrett helps Connor sharpen his powers in order to execute a series of crimes on behalf of Sutcliffe, while a militarized police unit, led by Agent Park (Sung Kang) and Agent Davis (Aaron Abrams), hunts them down. Code 8 is directed by American filmmaker Jeff Chan, his second feature film following Grace: The Possession and numerous shorts previously. The screenplay is by Chris Pare. This premiered at the Sitges Film Festival this year. Vertical debuts Chan's Code 8 in select theaters + on VOD starting December 13th.
