XLrator Media, the distribution company behind “Jimi: All Is By My Side” and “The Machine,” has acquired the North American rights to “Time Lapse.”

Starring Matt O’Leary (“Fat Kid Rules The World”), George Finn (“LOL”) and Danielle Panabaker (“The Flash” plus many Disney movies you’ve watched at sleepovers), the film is a time travel thriller that promises to blend action and twists with humor and smarts. 

The official synopsis reads: “‘Time Lapse’ explores the possibilities of time travel through a machine that is capable of taking pictures 24 hours into the future. When three friends discover this mysterious machine in their neighbor’s apartment, they encounter a number of pressing questions, not least of which is the whereabouts of their neighbor. Realizing the potential impact of the machine, Finn (O’Leary), Jasper (Finn), and Callie (Panabaker) attempt to cash in on their discovery.  But, when a dangerous criminal learns their secret, the friends must set aside their differences and confront the paradox of a future that was once predetermined and entirely uncertain. Using an engaging blend of action, humor and philosophy, ‘Time Lapse’ is an original thriller that not only keeps the audience guessing, but also explores questions of pre-determination, free will and destiny.”

“Time Lapse” will hit theaters and VOD on May 15 through XLrator’s “Macabre” genre label. “Time Lapse” is the feature directorial debut of Bradley King, who co-wrote the script with BP Cooper.
