A24 Releases Mysterious Sci-Fi Teaser Trailer

Update: The Film Stage has discovered that the mystery film in question is actually a short film called Toru that is premiering at Sundance this month.

With Bad Robot’s God Particle now seemingly confirmed as a new Cloverfield movie, we’re all in need of a new mystery to mull over and indie distributor A24 seems willing to oblige. Yesterday they got people talking by releasing a new teaser trailer for a currently unknown movie without providing any additional information. The video is untitled, although it was reportedly uploaded with the initial title “TOR TSR WITNESS”, and the description reads simply, “In our near future.” It certainly seems to be a science-fiction film, and considering that A24 brought us such films as Ex Machina and Under the Skin, that’s more than enough to get me excited. The only upcoming A24 film that might fit the description is Woodshock, the directorial debut of Rodarte fashion designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy (the plot synopsis: “A woman falls deeper into paranoia after taking a deadly drug.”) What do you think this movie might be about? Check out the mysterious trailer after the jump.

    Aren’t we about due for something new from Shane Carruth?

  • Sean

    You’re not the first person to mention him in connection with this trailer, but his next movie is supposed to be The Modern Ocean, which is about competition among cargo ships.
