Andrew Niccol’s Anon Trailer Starring Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried

anon

The writer-director behind such classics as Gattaca, The Truman Show and of course S1m0ne is back with another high concept dystopian thriller that wears its socially-relevant messages on its sleeve. Anon is the latest film from Andrew Niccol and if you can’t guess from that awful title, the movie revolves around privacy in the digital age. Clive Owen plays a detective who is chasing down unsolved murders in a near future world where everyone and everything is tracked and recorded. It seems a little like Minority Report meets The Circle and it’s pretty much the definition of heavy-handed. I’m in, obviously. Anon co-stars Amanda Seyfried and Colm Feore and it arrives on Netflix on May 4th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    I wonder the same thing unless he’s just not getting great offers, though I don’t think this looked so bad as some of his other direct to video stuff.
