Next year, the perils of time travel will be explored in a thrilling new way with the sci-fi thriller Synchronicity. Magnet Releasing has debuted the first trailer for this "Sci-fi Noir" tale, which has been compared to classics such as Blade Runner, Gattaca and Memento. Magnet Releasing has set a January 22, 2016 release date for Synchronicity, which will go up against Sony's The 5th Wave, STX Entertainment's The Boy and Liosngate's Dirty Grandpa.
Daring physicist Jim Beale (Chad McKnight) has invented a machine that can fold space-time and ruthless corporate tycoon Klaus Meisner (Michael Ironside) will stop at nothing to get it. When Jim uses the machine to tear open the fabric of the universe, a rare Dahlia appears from the future. But in order to keep the rights to his invention he must prove that it works by finding the flower's identical match in the present.
Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of the mysterious Abby, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that she is in league with Klaus to take ownership of his life's work, Jim travels back in time to stop the conspiracy before it can happen. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about Abby, the machine, and his own uncertain future.
Brianne Davis, AJ Bowen, Scott Poythress, Claire Bronson, Ashley Drayton, Derek Ryan Duke, Sergine Dumais and Elle Sunkara round out the supporting cast of Synchronicity. Jacob Gentry, who directed the 2007 thriller entitled The Signal, directs from a screenplay he co-wrote with Alex Orr. The film will also be debut on VOD platforms and iTunes along with the theatrical release on January 22.
