Trailer for Time Loop Short Film 'Two Distant Strangers' on Netflix
"One way or another, I'm gettin' home to my dog." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for an acclaimed time loop short titled Two Distant Strangers, which is arriving streaming on Netflix in April. It's already nominated for Best Live Action Short at the Academy Awards this year. In the film, cartoonist Carter James’ repeated attempts to get home to his dog are thwarted by a recurring deadly encounter that forces him to re-live the same awful day over & over. Starring Joey Bada$$ and Andrew Howard, with Zaria Simone. "When we set out to create this short in the middle of the simultaneous pandemic and social justice crises, we didn’t know what to expect… [We've] been so filled with gratitude to see so many people responding to this story of resilience and perseverance." The short runs 29 minutes and looks like it's definitely worth a watch. It's also similar to another time loop film The Obituary of Tunde Johnson - both of these look great.
