While we still wait for the movie to finally land a release date here in North America, the first clip from director Steven Shainberg’s (Secretary) new sci-fi thriller Rupture has been released.

The movie stars Noomi Rapace (Prometheus), Peter Stormare (Clown), Michael Chiklis (Gotham), Kerry Bishé (Argo), Lesley Manville (Maleficent) and Ari Millen (Orphan Black). Shainberg helmed the movie from a screenplay co-written by Shainberg and Brian Nelson (Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night, Devil).

The story centers on a single mom (played by Noomi Rapace) with a fear of spiders (yep, eight-legged freaks have something to do with the plot, but don't worry, unlike the trailer, there's not one critter in sight in the video below) who gets kidnapped by a mysterious group who, according to Bloody-Disgusting, “reveal to her that humanity faces an unsettling threat from within.”

The tense new clip below shows Rapace’s abduction at the hands of two men who wrap up her head with A LOT of shiny black tape. Just looking at it, I feel like I can't catch my breath. Oooof! Check it out below!

Renee Morgan (Rapace), a single mom who lives with her twelve-year-old son Evan in a quiet suburban home, is terrified of spiders. Unbeknownst to both, their every move is being observed. While running her daily errands her car breaks down and she is violently kidnapped by a group of strangers. About 24 hours later, in an anonymous laboratory, she is tied up and questioned about her medical history, including her great fear of spiders. Soon her captors explain to her that her genetic abnormality can potentially allow her to “Rupture”, revealing her own true alien nature.
