Trailer for Future Hong Kong Sci-Fi Film 'Expired' with Hugo Weaving
"There isn't much time… and you're deteriorating very quickly. Lionsgate has revealed an official US trailer for Expired, an intriguing sci-fi thriller from Australia set in the future in a "neon-drenched" world similar to Blade Runner. In a futuristic Hong Kong, young assassin Jack crosses paths with a nightclub singer. As Jack becomes increasingly drawn to April, his body mysteriously deteriorates. Jack tracks down reclusive life extension scientist Dr. Bergman, who unearths Jack’s long buried secret and is forced to confront his own murky past. "Every frame encourages life and emotion, an optimism as much as heartache, of what could be, and what will be." Ryan Kwanten and Hugo Weaving star with Jillian Nguyen as April. This looks very cool, I can't deny with this footage, I just hope the rest holds up. This trailer also has a rad score.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Ivan Sen's Expired, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube:
As Jack (Ryan Kwanten) works as a hitman, his lonely life is altered by two strangers—one a club singer, the other a mysterious scientist (Hugo Weaving).

But then the scientist discovers the shocking reasons behind Jack's deadly affliction… Expired, formerly known as Loveland, is written and directed by Indigenous Australian writer / filmmaker Ivan Sen, director of the films Beneath Clouds, Dreamland, Toomelah, Mystery Road, and Goldstone previously, as well as few other short films.
