Flying under the radar is a new sci-fi thriller that demands your attention.
Andrew Niccol’s high-tech Anon just took POV camerawork to the next level. Probably a bit ahead of its time, Anon mixes traditional camerawork with first-person perspective, utilizing AR as its driving force. The alternate/augmented reality looks ridiculously cool in this trailer, which features Amanda Seyfried (Jennifer’s Body) and Clive Owen (Shoot ‘Em Up, Sin City) in a psychological thriller set in a world with no privacy, ignorance or anonymity.
In the film, “All lives are transparent, traceable and recorded by the authorities. It’s the end of crime, it seems. However, when Owen’s character stumbles on a young woman (Seyfried) with no digital footprint and invisible to the police, he discovers it may not be the end of crime but the beginning.”
Seyfried and Niccol (The Truman Show) previously worked together on the director’s 2011 dystopian thriller In Time, in which she starred opposite Justin Timberlake.
Netflix will release the film May 4, 2018.
