You may watch below the first official trailer of Division 19, the upcoming action science-fiction movie starring Jamie Draven, Linus Roache, Clarke Peters, Alison Doody, Lotte Verbeek, L. Scott Caldwell, Will Rothhaar, Toby Hemingway, and Tim Jo:
In the future prisoners are entertainment.
When everyone is watching there is nowhere to hide.
“DIVISION 19 is set in a future where the burgeoning need for social control has led to mass-criminalization.
With jails overflowing, Head of Central Control LYNDON (Linus Roache) has brought in a data-warehousing specialist NEILSEN (Alison Doody) who has turned the jails into online portals allowing citizens to monitor felons, voting on what they eat, wear, read, watch and when they fight
By far the most popular and downloaded felon is HARDIN JONES (Jamie Draven) unknowingly utilized 24/7 to sell everything from jeans to beans.
When Jones escapes, he wants just one thing: his anonymity.
But a group of crypto-anarchists who have taken on the State need his influence to help their cause. Hardin isn’t interested. He just wants off the radar. Until he finds out NEILSEN is planning on rolling Panopticon TV out to a whole new town. And the first resident of this new experiment town, will be Hardin’s brother NASH.
Hardin knows his only option is to enter Division 19 and risk recapture in order to save his brother from the kind of scrutinized existence he barely survived himself.”
This high-tech take on the Roman games is going to be a treat! Do you root for the system or for the inmates?
The film is written and directed by S.A. Halewood. It should be released sometime in April 2019.
Stay tuned for updates.
