Noel Clarke has come a long way since his days as dimwitted companion Mickey Smith on Doctor Who, and now he’s out to save the world in the new sci-fi thriller The Anomaly.
The story follow traumatized ex-soldier Ryan (Clarke), who is trying to unravel a sci-fi conspiracy the he finds himself at the center of after waking up in the back of a van. The only problem? His consciousness resets every 9 minutes and 47 seconds, and he’s essentially “reborn” as a new person. Think Memento meets Minority Report, maybe?
It’s an intriguing premise, and the trailer seems to set up a nice, mid-budget sci-fi thriller. The flick stars Clarke (Star Trek Into Darkness), Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries), Luke Hemsworth (Neighbours), Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity) and Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect). Along with starring, Clarke also directed the film, so there’s another nice Who connection to throw in.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:
The film opens July 4 in the U.K. Sadly, no word yet on a potential U.S. release date.
