Fantasia 2015: Experience Synchronicity with these New Stills and Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Synchronicity, the long awaited solo feature debut from Jacob Gentry, co-director of The Signal, is having its World Premiere during the Fantasia Film Festival on July 22nd with director Gentry, producers Alexander A. Motlagh and Christopher Alender, and stars Chad McKnight, AJ Bowen, Brianne Davis, and Michael Ironside in attendance.

Read on for more details, a batch of stills, and your first look at the film’s teaser trailer!

From the Press Release:
POPfilms and Soapbox Films are excited to announce that director Jacob Gentry’s latest film, Synchronicity, will have its World Premiere at Fantasia International Film Festival 2015 on July 22nd at 7:15 PM at J.A. DeSève Cinema. The film stars Chad McKnight (“The West Wing,” Last Goodbye), AJ Bowen (The Signal, A Horrible Way To Die, You’re Next), Brianne Davis (Jarhead, Prom Night), and Michael Ironside (Top Gun, Total Recall).

Synchronicity follows the story of a daring physicist who folds time to travel into the past, trying to stop a mysterious woman from stealing his invention. But once there, he gets caught in a love triangle that will fracture his reality and endanger his entire future.

Synchronicity is Gentry’s third feature film and his fourth collaboration with lead actor Chad McKnight. His filmography includes The Signal, which was acquired by Magnolia Pictures after it premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award, along with the My Super Psycho Sweet 16 trilogy, Last Goodbye, and After the Disco. Gentry is also known for his work on music videos with the band Broken Bells. The first of which, “The Ghost Inside,” starred Christina Hendricks and was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award.

With Synchronicity, Gentry wanted to draw inspiration from the gritty cyberpunk textures and analog synth sounds of sci-fi movies from the 70s and 80s, as well as the harsh shadows and smokey glamour of post-war crime dramas in order to create a retro-futuristic world that the audience could climb into and walk around inside of. He wanted the audience to experience an atmospheric playground where the mysteries of the universe can be explored in the dark unknown of time and space.

“For years I’ve wanted to attend Fantasia as a genre cinema enthusiast. So I couldn’t be more excited for my first trip to the fest be as both filmmaker and die-hard fan,” said director Jacob Gentry. “I can’t wait to premiere Synchronicity for the kind of audience I always want to be part of.”

Synchronicity is produced by Alexander Motlagh, known for The Signal and MTV’s breakout series “Finding Carter,” and Christopher Alender, founder of Soapbox Films. Worldwide sales are being handled by Preferred Content.

Synopsis:
From the creators of The Signal (Sundance 2007) comes SYNCHRONICITY, a mind-bending “sci-fi noir” in the tradition of Blade Runner, Gattaca, and Memento.

Daring physicist Jim Beale has invented a machine that can fold space-time, and ruthless corporate tycoon Klaus Meisner will stop at nothing to get it. When Jim uses the machine to tear open the fabric of the universe, a rare Dahlia appears from the future. But in order to keep the rights to his invention, he must prove that it works by finding the flower’s identical match in the present. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of the mysterious Abby, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that she is in league with Klaus to take ownership of his life’s work, Jim travels back in time to stop the conspiracy before it can happen. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about Abby, the machine, and his own uncertain future.

I Already Have a Dog But Now I Want a Baby Dinosaur

Published

on

The first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, is rumored to be attached to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Since that film is going to be coming out in less than a month, it’s no surprise that the marketing campaign for the dino-filled trailer is already starting and today it kicks off with a six-second teaser that is as adorable as you can get!

In the teaser, Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady is petting a baby velociraptor, which coos and twitters in the cutest of fashions. Is there anything else going on? Nah. Does something else need to happen? Nope. The movie already has me sold.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (When a Monster Calls), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong, and Toby Jones. However, the biggest and most important star of the film will be the return of Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, who is, in my humble opinion, the best character in the franchise, besting even the T-rex that seemingly cannot die.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will evolve into theaters on June 22, 2018.
