Posted Filed under

The first trailer has been unveiled for upcoming American-Dutch POV sci-fi film Kill Switch.

Directed by Tim Smit, the movie is based on his previous short film What’s in the Box?.

The cast is led by Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens, alongside Bérénice Marlohe, Tygo Gernandt, Charity Wakefield, Bas Keijzer, Mike Libanon and Mike Reus.

Exec Bill Bromiley from Saban Films teased: “Smit’s previous work in VFX is evident throughout this film, and his experience working within the action and sci-fi genre takes his feature debut to a spectacular level. This will be a unique film that will captivate our audiences with its heavy visuals and thought-provoking plotlines.”

Kill Switch is set in a future version of the world and the story follows an experiment for unlimited energy, harnessing parallel universes, which goes wrong. Chased by drones and soldiers, pilot and physicist Will Porter must race through an imploding world to get the Redivider box to a tower, which will save humanity, including his family, in the real world.

Of course, if you prefer to enjoy your POV video game adventures from the comfort of your own home, do it with caution. These games are quite the thrill, though, so be sure to have your meds and blood pressure monitoring device ready.

Kill Switch arrives in US cinemas on 16 June.

It was revealed today that the long-awaited Downton Abbey movie will begin filming in September.
