It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Predestination, the time travel project that reteams Ethan Hawke with his Daybreakers directors The Spierig Brothers. The last update we got was that Hawke had finished the film about a year ago, then nothing. Then today we suddenly get a trailer for the film based on the 1959 Robert Heinlein short story “All You Zombies.”
And that trailer looks pretty cool. It definitely seems like it mixes elements of Minority Report with elements of Looper, though the dating of its source material should clear up any claims of aping the latter. Sarah Snook looks like she’s being put to unique use as well, with a remarkable transformation at the trailer’s halfway point. My only real concern here is that they’re showing too much. Sony will be distributing the film in the U.S. but a release date hasn’t been announced at the moment. Hit the jump for the Predestination trailer.
