“Dan Stevens, you just starred in a billion-dollar hit and have your own popular TV show, what are you doing next?” “I’m doing an indie scifi film about a big portal in the sky!”


Okay, he didn’t say that, but it’s true. Stevens, who played the Beast in the new Beauty and the Beast film and just wrapped up the first season of Legion, is the star of Kill Switch, a small film that’s coming to theaters and VOD on June 16. He plays a pilot who has to save his family, and the world, when an energy experiment using parallel universes goes wrong. Here’s the first trailer.

Kill Switch is directed by first-time filmmaker Tim Smit and, honestly, the trailer doesn’t look half bad. You don’t really get a sense of the story in it, but the visuals certainly make us think this might be a film worth checking out later this summer. Stress the “might be.”

Dan Stevens is an actor who really pushes his chameleon-like acting skills. I first saw him play the very buffed psycho in The Guest, a decent take on the “unstoppable” killer, then went backwards in his career to see the more doughy character he played in Downton Abbey.

By comparison his character in Legion is not only waaaay out there but unlike those other two characters he played, Mr. Stevens is rather scrawny. Mr. Stevens is certainly a fascinating up and coming actor and he’s doing the type of stuff a Robert DeNiro did back in the day by not only acting many different roles but also presenting different physical “looks”.
