Netflix has released the first trailer for its latest original film, the sci-fi thriller “ARQ.”
The movie stars Robbie Amell (CW’s “The Flash”) and Rachael Taylor (ABC’s “Jessica Jones”) and features a dark twist on the “Groundhog Day”-style conceit, in which events repeatedly reoccur.
Here’s how Netflix described the movie in a statement:
“In a dystopian future, an engineer trapped in a house and surrounded by a mysterious gang of masked intruders must protect a technology that could deliver unlimited energy and end the wars that have consumed the world.”
Amell and Taylor were cast in the film in January, and filming for the reportedly low-budget picture took place in Toronto during the winter months, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Written and directed by “Orphan Black” writer Tony Elliot, “ARQ” is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, before it begins streaming on Netflix on September 16.
