Focus Features has released the first trailer for its upcoming release "The Signal." The film, which premiered in January at Sundance, stars veteran actor Laurence Fishburne opposite up-and-comer Brenton Thwaites (also the star of The Weinstein Company's adaptation of Lois Lowery's dystopic young adult novel, "The Giver," which is slated for release in August.)

"The Signal" marks William Eubanks' return to the director's chair after four long years. Although Eubanks has a considerable number of credits, most are as a cinematographer. Eubanks made his directorial debut back in 2011 with "Love" -- also a curious mind-bending drama that draws heavily from science-fiction lore.

Just over two minutes in length, the trailer for "The Signal" presents a stunning montage of scenes from the film, accompanied by an ethereal soundtrack reminiscent of Ennio Morricone's haunting theme for John Carpenter's 1982 remake of "The Thing." In terms of premise and plot, however, the trailer leaves us with more questions than answers -- which is exactly how it should be. 

Check out the trailer below:
