The directorial debut of visual effects/video game artist Gavin Rothery (MOON) is coming this week.

Vertical Entertainment releases ARCHIVE, written and directed by Rothery, in virtual cinema screenings, VOD and digital platforms this Friday, July 10. It stars Theo James (the DIVERGENT films, CASTLEVANIA), Stacy Martin, Rhona Mitra, Toby Jones (BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO, THE MIST), Peter Ferdinando, Richard Glover and Lia Williams. The synopsis: “2038: George Almore [James] is working on a true human-equivalent AI. His latest prototype is almost ready. This sensitive phase is also the riskiest. Especially as he has a goal that must be hidden at all costs: being reunited with his dead wife.”
