The first trailer is now available for director Kasper Barfoed’s The Numbers Station. The thriller stars John Cusack as an ex-CIA Black Ops agent tasked with protecting a code operator (Malin Akerman). When a highly organized assault threatens their lives and the security of the communication center, the two must work together to prevent the attackers from accomplishing their deadly mission. While it looks to be a by-the-numbers thriller, Cusack is definitely an interesting choice as you would expect Nicolas Cage to take this one and run with it. This is one of seven movies Cusack has coming out this year so let’s hope this doesn’t represent his best work of 2013. The Numbers Station is expected to open on April 26th. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and see the full synopsis.

Here’s the synopsis for The Numbers Station:
After his latest mission goes disastrously wrong, veteran CIA black ops agent Emerson Kent is given one last chance to prove he still has what it takes to do his job. His new assignment: guarding Katherine, a code operator at a top-secret remote CIA “Numbers Station” where encrypted messages are sent and received. When an elite team of heavily armed assailants lays siege to the station, Emerson and Katherine suddenly find themselves in a life-or-death struggle against an unknown enemy. With the station compromised and innocent lives at stake, they must stop the deadly plot before it’s too late.
