‘Anon’ Trailer: Amanda Seyfried and Clive Owen Try to Survive in a World Where Privacy Doesn’t Exist

The science-fiction thriller is the latest release from "Gattaca" and "In Time" director Andrew Niccol.



“Gattaca” and “In Time” director Andrew Niccol is sticking with the science-fiction genre in his upcoming feature, “Anon.” The high-concept thriller is set in a world where the government has eliminated privacy, which has resulted in total government surveillance on the public and de facto self-censorship. Clive Owen plays a police officer who becomes the target of a hacker named The Girl (Amanda Seyfried).

“Anon” marks a reunion between Seyfried and Niccol after “In Time” in 2011. The director’s last release, “Good Kill,” starred Ethan Hawke and premiered at the 2014 Venice Film Festival. “Anon” made headlines at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival when Netflix purchased U.S. and some foreign rights to the title for $4 million.

The streaming giant has not issued a release date for the film, but Altitude Films will be opening “Anon” in U.K. theaters May 11. The distributor has released an official trailer below.
