"What is going on??" "Someone tried to kill me, Moses!" Magnolia Pictures has revealed a new US trailer for an action thriller from South Africa titled Indemnity, made by an up-and-coming filmmaker named Travis Taute. This originally premiered at last year's Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, and we featured an early promo trailer last summer for it. Jarrid Geduld stars as a traumatized ex-firefighter from Cape Town who wakes up next to his murdered wife, with no recollection of what transpired. Labelled as the prime suspect, he goes on the run and is soon hunted by a notorious police chief, as well as an unknown third party. He must now fight for his life and find out who killed his wife, before the conspiracy changes the course of a nation forever. "Indemnity's lead, Jarrid Geduld, spent three months training with stunt masters Vernon Willemse and Grant Powell (Fury Road, Tomb Raider) and succeeded at all of his own stunts, including a record-breaking hanging suspension stunt performed from the 21st floor." The cast also includes Nicole Fortuin, Andre Jacobs, Gail Mabalane, and Tshamano Sebe. This still looks like it might be badass.
Here's the final US trailer (+ new poster) for Travis Taute's Indemnity, direct from Magnolia's YouTube:

An ex-firefighter in Cape Town is forced to fight for his life after being accused of murdering his wife. As he struggles to survive, connections are revealed between his past, the origin of his PTSD, the mysterious death of his wife, and a government conspiracy with terrifying implications. A high-tension, politically-charged action thriller shot and wrapped safely during the pandemic, Indemnity is the latest from Cape Town production studio Gambit Films, producers of the hit Netflix series Blood & Water and instrumental in bringing South African genre cinema into the mainstream. Indemnity is both written and directed by South African filmmaker Travis Taute, making his feature directorial debut; he's also co-writer of Nosipho Dumisa’s award-winning Number 37 and co-director of the short that preceded it by the same name, as well as a writer & director on the TV series "Blood & Water". This first premiered at the 2021 Fantasia Film Fest last year. Magnolia opens Taut's Indemnity in select US theaters + on VOD starting February 11th, 2022.
