Trailer For Time Travel Thriller SYNCHRONICITY, a Mind-Bending Sci-Fi Noir
Here's the trailer for Synchonicity, the newest film from The Signal director Jacob Gentry. Billed as a "mind-bending sci-fi noir," the movie centers on a man who invents time travel and the lengths he'll go to in order to protect his claim. The trailer does a great job at establishing a dark, moody, atmospheric vibe, and this looks like it could be another excellent small-scale time travel thriller in the vein of Timecrimes or Primer, though apparently with higher production values than both.
Synchronicity hits theaters, iTunes, and On Demand starting on January 22nd, 2016. What do you think?
SYNCHRONICITY is a mind-bending 'Sci-fi Noir' in the tradition of Blade Runner, Gattaca, and Memento. Daring physicist Jim Beale has invented a machine that can fold space-time and ruthless corporate tycoon Klaus Meisner will stop at nothing to get it. When Jim uses the machine to tear open the fabric of the universe, a rare Dahlia appears from the future. But in order to keep the rights to his invention he must prove that it works by finding the flower's identical match in the present. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of the mysterious Abby, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that she is in league with Klaus to take ownership of his life's work, Jim travels back in time to stop the conspiracy before it can happen. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about Abby, the machine, and his own uncertain future.
