A24 has released a new Equals trailer. The new sci-fi film from filmmaker Drake Doremus (Like Crazy) stars Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart as two members of a totalitarian state where emotions have been eradicated, but somehow managed to fall in love regardless, which puts their lives in jeopardy. It’s not a wholly new story, but I absolutely love the look of the film, and this trailer makes it seem like Doremus has crafted a lush, intimate science-fiction romance with strong performances from his excellent cast.
Check out the Equals trailer below. The film also stars Guy Pearce, Kate Lyn Sheil, Bel Powley, Toby Huss, and Jacki Weaver. Equals opens July 15th. Click here to read Adam’s review.
