A new trailer has been released for the thriller KIMI, about a Siri-like virtual assistant that hears and records everything. Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies, The Batman) stars in the film as a recording interpreter who believes she hears a murder while listening and is facing roadblocks in reporting it when no one will believe her. The film is directed by Oscar-winner Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s 11, Magic Mike) from a script written by Oscar-winner David Koepp (Jurassic Park, Carlito’s Way).
Kravitz is joined in the cast by Jaime Camil, Erika Christensen, Derek DelGaudio, Robin Givens, Charles Halford, Devin Retray, Jacob Vargas, and Rita Wilson.
Here’s the film’s full synopsis:
The title refers to an Alexa/Siri-like voice-activated digital assistant called KIMI. It hears everything you say all the time, recording everything for a Big Brother-like corporation. Kravitz plays Angela Childs, a voice stream interpreter who overhears a murder on a recording she’s analyzing. Angela is shaken after reaching out to colleagues. Why are her employers resistant to her trying to bring this to the authorities’ attention?
This movie looks like a cross between Minority Report and any number of the virtual assistant films we’ve seen crop up over the last few years. It has an impressive cast and crew on board though, so it’s probably worth checking out. Watch the trailer below, and see KIMI when it becomes available on HBO Max on February 10th.
