“You’re operating independently of yourself in an alternate time line”—now, is there any way that won’t end badly? With this trailer—fast-paced and stuffed with sinister, urban-noir vibes—we’re super excited for Synchronicity, the latest science fiction thriller from Jacob Gentry who you might remember from 2007’s The Signal.
Here’s the official synopsis:
SYNCHRONICITY is 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.
Synchronicity will be out January 22.
