Equals first trailer is full of silent longing

Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult star in the first trailer for Equals


Read the synopsis and check out the poster for Equals below:

Equals takes place in a colourless, post-apocalyptic society – known as The Collective – where its inhabitants have been genetically modified between conception and birth to be “emotion-free.”  Consequently, emotion, love, and sex have been outlawed.

Silas (Nicholas Hoult), an illustrator in The Collective, mysteriously starts experiencing feelings and realises he has become afflicted with “Switched-On-Syndrome.” As Silas is grappling with his new, undisclosed condition, he finds himself drawn to Nia (Kristen Stewart), a fiction writer, who he soon discovers is also emotionally alive, and also hiding the condition. 

Equals stars Kristen Stewart, Nicholas Hoult, Bel Powley and Guy Pearce, and is directed by Drake Doremus.



Equals will be released digitally on 19 September 2016 and on VOD and DVD on 3 October. For all the latest movie news, pick up the new issue of SciFiNow.
