WATCH: Trailer for Synchronic gives us a sci-fi nightmare that looks worth the throuble

September 16th, 2020 by Marc Comments

We’ve already had a couple of fun trailers this week for movies we previously knew nothing about (Love and Monsters and Save Yourselves!) and now we have a third.

Well, in fairness, Synchronic doesn’t look fun but it does look pretty damned good. A cross between 12 Monkeys and Bringing Out the Dead, it’s a sci-fi nightmare-type movie that is very popular to do but very hard to do well.

When New Orleans paramedics and longtime best friends Steve (Anthony Mackie) and Dennis (Jamie Dornan) are called to a series of bizarre, gruesome accidents, they chalk it up to the mysterious new party drug found at the scene.

But after Dennis’s oldest daughter suddenly disappears, Steve stumbles upon a terrifying truth about the supposed psychedelic that will challenge everything he knows about reality—and the flow of time itself.

Synchronic arrives on October 23rd, 2020, is directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead and stars Anthony Mackie, Jamie Dornan, Katie Aselton and Ally IIoannides

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
