Hypnotic – TRAILER


Director Robert Rodriguez has an eclectic back catalogue of films that takes in no budget thrillers (El Mariachi), children’s films (Spy kids), comic book adaptations (Sin City) to big budget blockbusters (Alita) but the Hypnotic trailer which landed in our inbox is something quite different.

Determined to find his missing daughter, detective Danny Rourke instead finds himself spiralling down a rabbit hole while investigating a series of reality-bending bank robberies where he will ultimately call into question his most basic assumptions about everything and everyone in his world. Aided by Diana Cruz, an unnervingly gifted psychic, Rourke simultaneously pursues and is pursued by a lethal specter – the one man he believes holds the key to finding the missing girl – only to discover more than he ever bargained for.

he mind-bending thriller stars Academy Award winner Ben Affleck (Air) as Danny Rourke, a detective determined to find his daughter with the aid of psychic Diana Cruz (Alice Braga; Queen of the South), whose investigation will lead him to question his most basic assumptions about his world and everyone in it.
