A couple of months ago, we posted the first trailer for Michael and Peter Spierig’s upcoming sci-fi film, Predestination, and through the power of time travel, another trailer is now upon us! Ethan Hawke, who previously collaborated with the brother directors in the 2009 vampiric horror film Daybreakers, stars as the enigmatic lead in this mind-bending picture. It’s inspired by Robert Heinlein’s short story “All You Zombies”, so if you’re familiar with the source material then you should have a fair idea of where this picture is going. Possible spoilers aside, it’s still got potential to be a taut character-driven thriller, as this new trailer suggests.
Also starring Noah Taylor and Sarah Snook, Predestination opens in theaters on January 9th. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.
Take a look at the new international trailer for Predestination below (courtesy of Geek Nation):
Here’s the official synopsis:
In mid-’70s New York, a man in a fedora slips into an office building’s boiler room, carrying a mysterious briefcase. He uncovers a bomb, and is attacked while struggling to deactivate it. He succeeds — almost. Horribly disfigured, he’s transported to his agency’s headquarters where he receives a new face. He’s a temporal agent, traveling back and forth through time, altering history, and his assignment — thwart the mass murder perpetrated by the so-called ‘Fizzle Bomber’ — continues. New face, new place. Now he’s undercover as a bartender. He falls into conversation with a tough yet androgynous customer. There’s something off about the guy, who offers to enlighten the agent with ‘the best story you ever heard’.
