NEW YORK, N.Y. April 19, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) -– A24 launched a full trailer for its latest film, “Equals,” a sci-fi romance starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult.
Written by Nathan Parker (“Moon”), the film also stars Guy Pearce (“Memento”), Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”), Bel Powley (“The Diary of a Teenage Girl”), and Kate Lyn Sheil (“You’re Next”). The film had its US premiere last night, April 18, at the Tribeca Film Festival.
A24 will release “Equals” in theaters on July 15, and the title will be on DirecTV exclusively beginning on May 26.
In this gripping and emotional sci-fi romance, Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult play Nia and Silas, two people who work together in a futuristic society known as “The Collective.”
A seemingly utopian world, “The Collective” has ended crime and violence by genetically eliminating all human emotions. Despite this, Nia and Silas can’t help noticing a growing attraction between them, leading them to a forbidden relationship—at first tentative, but then exploding into a passionate romance.
As suspicion begins to mount among their superiors, the couple will be forced to choose between going back to the safety of the lives they have always known, or risk it all to try and pull off a daring escape.
An A24 film, “Equals” is directed by Drake Doremus and written by Nathan Parker. The film was produced by Michael Schaefer, Michael Pruss, Ann Ruark, Jay Stern, and Chip Diggins.
