The first trailer has been released for Andrew Niccol's upcoming sci-fi thriller Anon and it looks great! For those of you who aren't familiar with Niccol's work, he previously brought us films such as Gattaca, Lord of War, In Time, and Good Kill. I've enjoyed the films that he's made and this could be one of his better movies. The story is set in the near-future, there is no privacy or anonymity, where even private memories are recorded in an effort to cut down on crime. The movie stars Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried and this is the synopsis:
The story is set in a Soviet-style near-future where the government is trying to fight crime by eliminating privacy, thus creating total surveillance and de facto self-censorship. A police officer named Sal Frieland (Clive Owen) is a tough cop who is doing his best to fight crime in his city. However, things take a huge turn when he meets a hacker known as The Girl (Amanda Seyfried), with results that might lead him to blow the whistle on his own government.
There's no word on when the film will be released, but I can't wait to see it! Watch the international trailer below and tell us what you think!
