Check out the first trailer for “DxM,” in an Indiewire exclusive. “DxM” is the latest film from writer/director Andrew Goth (“Gallow Walkers,” B.U.S.T.E.D.,” “Cold and Dark”) and producers Walter Köhler and Joanne Reay from Red Bull’s cinema label Terra Mater Film Studios. Here’s the official synopsis:

“A group of young students attend a quantum science foundation known as DxM. They each study different disciplines, from quantum biology to bio-engineering but together, they are working on a group project — to develop a process that can bypass the human nervous system and so create a wireless neural network. Their aim is to restore mobility to Voltaire, a world-class free runner who broke his neck in an accident. Whilst pursuing this goal, our team discover something more. This wireless neural network, if connected via a quantum computer, can transfer motor skills from not just one brain to one body, but between different brains to different bodies. In short, they have created the first shareware for human motor skills.

They freely spread this technology, believing it to be a first step towards a new equality. But as the mysterious past of one of their group is revealed, dark forces emerge that threaten to subvert this technology into a means of mass-control.”

The film stars Sam Neill (“Jurassic Park”) as the team leader, alongside Melia Kreiling (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” Tom Payne (“The Physician”), Dominique Tipper (“Vampire Academy”), Oliver Stark (“My Hero,”) Antonia Campbell-Hughes (“Albert Nobbs”), and world-champion free-runner Ryan Doyle in his feature film debut.

“DxM” does not currently have a U.S. distributor in place, but will be selling as part of the Cannes market.
