Anthony Mackie in Android Thriller 'Outside the Wire' Teaser Trailer
"I don't have any specialist training as a field agent." "Don't worry, I'm special enough for both of us." Netflix has revealed an official trailer for Outside the Wire, a gritty new sci-fi action thriller from Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström (1408, Shanghai, The Rite, Escape Plan) set in the near future. Damson Idris (seen on the TV shows "Snowfall", "Black Mirror") stars as a disgraced drone pilot who is sent into a deadly militarized zone where he finds himself working for an android officer, played by Anthony Mackie, and is tasked to locate a doomsday device before the insurgents do. This has the look of Edge of Tomorrow, but without the time loop. There are, however, some slick robots and various sci-fi touches in this. Also starring Enzo Cilenti, Emily Beecham, Michael Kelly, and Pilou Asbæk. Why does this look so damn good?! Where did this come from?! I'm very much looking forward to this, hopefully it's as good as it looks in here.
Here's the first official trailer for Mikael Håfström's Outside the Wire, from Netflix's YouTube:
