The new trailer for Equals, starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult has arrived!! With the excitement of the film premiering at Cleveland and Tribeca Film Festivals, we had yet to experience the full-on emotional feels of the first trailer...until now! 


EQUALS takes place in a utopian society where violence and crime have been virtually eradicated—via the genetic elimination of human emotion. People like Nia (Kristen Stewart) and Silas (Nicholas Hoult) live calm, uneventful, drone-like lives. The two work alongside each other in a large office, creating informational publications and exchanging the occasional pleasantry. Life is simple, until a rumor starts to circulate: a disease has broken out; one that causes people to manifest emotions. If discovered by the powers that be, the infected are sent away, never to return. Silas suspects he carries the disease, and when this is confirmed, he becomes an outcast. But he is drawn back to Nia, who is also infected but has managed to hide the symptoms far better than he. Upon discovering they are similarly stricken, they need to decide whether to stay and hide or run for freedom. 

This future is, at first glance, a beautiful one: high windows, greenery, light-infused work spaces, food and shelter for all. But the viewer starts to feel unease at the spectacle of empty-eyed people moving through yet another day. 

EQUALS poses the question: could we scientifically suppress the strongest human emotion, or is love so strong it could truly conquer all? –Toronto International Film Festival

The movie releases in theaters on July 15, with an additional release a month before on DIRECTV CINEMA, on May 26.
