The creator of ANTIVIRAL is back with a heady new science-fiction shocker.
Neon has unveiled the trailer and poster for POSSESSOR, written and directed by Brandon Cronenberg and coming soon to release (date yet to be determined). Andrea Riseborough (MANDY), Christopher Abbott (PIERCING), Rossif Sutherland, Tuppence Middleton, Sean Bean and Jennifer Jason Leigh (eXistenZ) star in the film, which was shot by DP Karim Hussain (WE ARE STILL HERE, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN). According to the official synopsis, “POSSESSOR is an arresting sci-fi thriller about elite corporate assassin Tasya Vos [Riseborough]. Using brain-implant technology, Vos takes control of other people’s bodies to execute high profile targets. As she sinks deeper into her latest assignment Vos becomes trapped inside a mind that threatens to obliterate her.”
