The first trailer for Robert Luketic’s thriller Paranoia is now available. It does a nice job at setting up the premise of the film but, as is the current vogue, gives an awful lot of the plot away. Liam Hemsworth stars as a blue-collar pawn caught in a game of espionage between two kings of industry, played by Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford. The plot thickens when the long arm of the law reaches out for him, forcing him to play by his own set of rules to survive the game. This one should be on your radar if only to watch Oldman and Ford battle it out and to see how Hemsworth handles the lead.
Also starring Lucas Till, Amber Heard, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, Josh Holloway and Domenick Lombardozzi, Paranoia opens August 16th. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.
