Screen Media Films has released the official Naked Singularity trailer for their upcoming comedy-drama heist film, starring John Boyega and Olivia Cooke. The film is slated to arrive in select theaters on Friday, August 6, which will be followed by a VOD release on August 13.
The video, which you can check out below, begins with a young public defender who’s struggling to make a win at his cases. As gets fed up with the flawed justice system, he finds himself getting pulled into a drug heist in an effort to use the money to help victims of the failed system.
Based on the novel of the same name from Sergio de la Pava, Naked Singularity tells the story of Casi, a promising young NYC public defender whose idealism is beginning to crack under the daily injustices of the very justice system he’s trying to make right. Doubting all he has worked for and seeing signs of the universe collapsing all around him, he is pulled into a dangerous high-stakes drug heist by an unpredictable former client in an effort to beat the broken system at its own game.
The film stars John Boyega (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), Olivia Cooke (Modern Love), Bill Skarsgard (IT films), Ed Skrein (Deadpool), Linda Lavin (Alice), Tim Blake Nelson (Watchmen), Robert Bogue (Chicago Fire), Robert Christopher Riley (Dynasty), and Liza Colon-Zayas.
Naked Singularity is directed by Chase Palmer from a screenplay he co-wrote with David Matthews. The film had its world premiere last April at the 2021 San Francisco International Film Festival.
