A wild trailer has been released for the futuristic sci-fi thriller Zero Contact, starring Academy Award-winning actor Anthony Hopkins (The Silence of the Lambs, Westworld, The Father), as well as Aleks Paunovic, Tuva Novotny, Rukiya Bernard, Veronica Ferres, Adrian Holmes, Lilly Krug, and Martin Stenmarck.
The film was directed by producer Rick Dugdale in his feature directorial debut. The screenplay is written by Cam Cannon. It was produced in 17 different countries entirely virtually during the 2020 global pandemic, and was originally released on the NFT platform Vuele last year.
Here’s the synopsis:
Zero Contact follows five characters, based all over the world, connected only by their devotion to the late founder and tech titan, Finley Hart (played by Anthony Hopkins). Hopkins stars with other acclaimed actors: Aleks Paunovic, Veronica Ferres, and Chris Brochu, all of whom strive to halt Hart’s secretive and potentially lethal tech invention – the machine that is either the solution to mankind’s problems or the end of life on earth.
This looks like it’s toeing the line between cheesy and thrilling. I hope it ends up being as exciting as the trailer looks like it could be. Check out the trailer and poster for the film below, and watch Zero Contact in select US theaters and on VOD starting May 27th, 2022.
