In future New York City, every single surface can track your movements

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

In the 2023, the city of New York becomes one giant fingerprint scanner. Touch a guard rail, and "The Grid" can monitor your movements. Open a door, and The Grid has you tracked there as well. It's a new way of policing the people — until two sets of the exact same fingerprint show up in different places at once. Check out the trailer for the short film Plurality.


Here's the official synopsis:

After the state of New York gives the police access to "The Grid," a new technology that allows people to purchase anything with a quick scan of their fingerprint, crime drops almost instantly. However, they also discover that certain people are popping up in two places at once.


Director by commercial director Dennis Liu and written by Ryan Condal of Hercules (the upcoming movie with The Rock) and Paradise Lost. We're not sure of the release date just yet, but we'll keep you posted.

"Bentham" of course referring to the Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon prison where the jailors see everything and the prisoners see almost nothing. Big Brother.

This might be a pretty cool movie but I have two worrying feelings about it:

1) The advertising just came up suddenly just before the movies release, which sort of suggests a rush job and perhaps bad editing? It seems as if the movie was almost not green lit for release.

2) They needlessly jazz up the concept with time travel and this is not really necessary. A very compelling story could be told here just over the technological, hyperconnected Big Brother tech. The time travel angle just needlessly distracts and besides there are lots of ways to fake biometrics without time travel anyway.
