We can never get enough smart sci-fi films in our lives, and this intriguing little gem from FilmBuff could emerge as a spring sleeper. A fragile thread of strangeness pervades the unsettling new trailer for The Reconstruction of William Zero, directed with a reserved confidence by Dan Bush. It chronicles the confusing struggles of a well-known geneticist to reclaim his identity following a supposed accident that robs him of his memory. It stars co-writer Conal Byrne, Amy Seimetz, Melissa McBride (The Walking Dead) and A.J. Bowen (You're Next, The Signal).
Here's the official synopsis:
William Blakely, a top genetic researcher, awakens after a catastrophic accident with no memory or motor skills. As he begins to relearn his past and identity with the help of his mysterious twin brother, the memories that return are not his own. As he tries to reconnect with his estranged wife, Jules, he begins to unravel the strange circumstances surrounding the events that led him to fall into a coma. Searching for the source of these fragmented memories, he uncovers a shocking truth about his family and his employers.
The Reconstruction of William Zero awakens on VOD and in theaters April 10, 2015.
