The first full-length trailer for the buzzy Sundance acquisition film “Assassination Nation” has dropped, and it’s all sorts of bonkers.
“This is the story of how my town, Salem, lost its mind,” says the narrator. “When 17,000 people’s texts and emails get leaked, people get really weird.”
“Assassination Nation” follows four teenage girls in a quiet town who become the focus of worldwide attention when their personal information is leaked by a hacker.
The thriller stars Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Bella Thorne, Nill Skarsgard, Hari Nef, Abra, Colman Domingo, Joel McHale and Anika Noni Rose. It was written and directed by Sam Levinson and produced by David S. Goyer, Anita Gou, Kevin Turen, Aaron L. Gilbert, Matthew J. Malek and Manu Gargi.
“Assassination Nation” sold to Neon and the Russo Brothers’ production company AGBO for $10 million at the Sundance Film Festival, marking one of the biggest sales of the festival.
“You may kill me, but you can’t kill us all,” says Young’s character at the end of the trailer.
