It's imaginably difficult to get anything done when you're only awake for barely ten minutes at a time, but that's the challenge met head on with actor and filmmaker Noel Clarke now on par for a U.S. audience with his latest UK-produced sci-fi action thriller, The Anomaly. STARZ-owned Anchor Bay is slating a select release on September 25 with home and digital releases on October 6 following pre-order availability on September 2, and with this, a new trailer began circulating this week.
It is the near future, an ex-soldier and PTSD patient Ryan Reeve (director/star Noel Clarke of “Doctor Who” and Star Trek Into Darkness) has a very disturbing type of blackout amnesia: He regains consciousness days or weeks apart for exactly 9 minutes and 47 seconds, only to discover that he is now a lethal operative for a mysterious organization. But as he tries to piece together his past with each reboot, he realizes that the organization now wants him dead. Can Reeve stay two steps ahead of a sinister colleague (Ian Somerhalder of “The Vampire Diaries”) he does not recognize long enough to destroy a global conspiracy he can’t escape? Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect 1 & 2), Luke Hemsworth and Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy) co-star in this action thriller.
