Kristen Stewart may have found her vehicle.
The newest trailer for Drake Doremus’ EQUALS has hit the web. It revolves around a dystopian future where emotions are kept in check and patrons are kept in lockdown mode. Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart star. Their characters, Silas and Nia, develop some sort of virus and they plan an escape.
EQUALS looks to be an amalgamation of EQUILIBRIUM, THE ISLAND, THX-1138, I’m probably missing a few. Point being is that it’s familiar. Doremus has built up some leeway from me (I think LIKE CRAZY is a superb look at relationships), so I remain optimistic. If anything, EQUALS is the perfect film for Stewart, who excels in these emotionless, bleak environments. She’s got the right face for it.
EQUALS comes out July 16, 2016.
