So Sam Levinson, son of director Barry Levinson, wrote and direct his upcoming film Assassination Nation. It’s a strange film that looks to comment on modern America and a lot of the recent controversies in society, but the red band teaser trailer released today reveals very little except that it will be dark and bloody. Check it out below:
The synopsis is as follows:
Salem high school senior Lily (Played by Odessa Young) and her pals spend their time in a haze of social media and partying. When the people of Salem are targeted in a malicious data hack, all privacy is destroyed and lives are ruined as deadly secrets are exposed. The small town turns on each other and descends into violent chaos as they hunt for the culprit. Lily and her friends must band together if they want to survive the night.
Assassination Nation co-stars Suki Waterhouse, Hari Nef, Abra, Bella Thorne, Bill Skarsgård, Cody Christian, Joel McHale, Maude Apatow, Colman Domingo and Anika Noni Rose. It is set to hit theaters September 21st.
