A24 has released a new trailer for director Drake Doremus’ (Breathe In, Like Crazy) upcoming sci-fi love-story, Equals.

Starring Nicholas Hoult (the X-Men movie franchise) and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga), the movie takes place in a futuristic, totalitarian world where emotions have been eradicated (which reminds me an awful lot of the premise for Equilibrium) but a viral outbreak threatens to bring them back.

It's in this cold, emotionless world where Hoult and Stewart’s characters, Silas and Nia, fall in love. Awww.

Check it out:


Penned by Moon (if you haven't seen this movie yet, you're missing out) screenwriter Nathan Parker, the movie looks more like an intimate love story than a sci-fi movie, but I have to say that I'm intrigued.

Equals also stars Guy Pearce, Jacki Weaver and Bel Powley. It will open in theaters on July 15.
