Well Go USA released the first official trailer for Synchronic, which is the latest from Spring and The Endless filmmakers Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson.
Anthony Mackie and Jamie Dornan star in Synchronic as two New Orleans paramedics, whose lives are ripped apart after encountering a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug with bizarre, otherworldly effects.
Check out the official trailer for Synchronic below:
The full synopsis for the film is as follows: When New Orleans paramedics and longtime best friends Steve (Mackie) and Dennis (Dornan) are called to a series of bizarre, gruesome accidents, they chalk it up to the mysterious new party drug found at the scene. But after Dennis’s oldest daughter suddenly disappears, Steve stumbles upon a terrifying truth about the supposed psychedelic that will challenge everything he knows about reality—and the flow of time itself.
Synchronic is the new movie from duo Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson, whose previous Resolution, Spring, and The Endless established them as some of the most impressive and imaginative up-and-coming genre filmmakers around. They truly know how to stretch a budget to its full potential and nothing is ever as cut-and-dry as the genre permits.
Their latest earned rave reviews out of the Toronto International Film Festival last year. Its mix of mindbending set pieces with neo-noir tones creates a truly stylish and oft-times unpredictable thriller. There is also some great playfulness to both the treatment of time travel but levied by sturdy character development creating a humanistic story that doesn’t skimp on popular genre tropes. It’s a real treat.
Also, check out the cool poster for the film as well:
Synchronic is being released in theaters and drive-ins October 23 although Moorhead, Benson, and producer David Lawson all posted the same message on Instagram basically telling people not to see the film at an indoor venue because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s the message in full:
“Due to distribution arrangements that are out of our control, the release of Synchronic into drive-ins and indoor theaters has been confirmed for October 23rd, but we want to be very clear: at the time of writing this, we personally wouldn’t go to an indoor movie theater, so we can’t encourage you to. To us, this isn’t only about feeling safe in a theater, this is also about the scientific community indicating that enclosed spaces like movie theaters are still a hazard for spreading COVID-19 to others.”
So check out Synchronic if you can but do it safely.
