WATCH: The first official trailer for The Signal

March 20th, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

This is the first official trailer for a sci-fi indie film called The Signal. It sort of has an Akira/Chronicle feel to it.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

Nick and Jonah are MIT freshmen with a passion for hacking. While driving cross-country through Nevada with Nick’s girlfriend, Hailey, they follow rival hacker Nomad’s clues to a location 180 miles away. After a terrifying confrontation with Nomad in the middle of the desert, the trio regain consciousness in captivity. Struggling to comprehend the true nature of their confinement, they discover they are part of a plot much larger than themselves.

The movie was written and directed by William Eubank, and it stars Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp, Laurence Fishburne, Lin Shaye, Robert Longstreet, and Jeffrey Grover.

The Signal is set to hit theaters on July 13th, 2014.
