Prepare for the Worm Flu epidemic with the Viral trailer
Dimension Films and Blumhouse Pictures have just released the Viral trailer, offering a look at the new horror thriller starring Sofia Black-D’Elia (Project Almanac, The Messengers), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love, Lucy), Travis Tope (Independence Day: Resurgence), and Michael Kelly (House of Cards, Now You See Me). Check out the Viral trailer in the player below!
In Viral, teenaged sisters Emma (Black-D’Elia) and Stacey (Tipton) live a normal life, until their small suburban neighborhood is stricken with a mysterious parasitic virus. As the disease rapidly spreads throughout the town, the two band together to barricade themselves from infection. But it may already be too late – when the virus enters their home, the sisters are faced with an impossible choice: protect each other, or survive the virus. Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, Viral was written by Barbara Marshall and Christopher Landon.
Directors Joost and Schulman launched their career with the documentary Catfish and are also well known as the directors of Paranormal Activity 3 and 4. Viral isn’t the only film they’ve got arriving next month, either, as they’re also helming the upcoming Lionsgate thriller Nerve, starring Emma Roberts and Dave Franco.
Look for Viral to hit theaters and Digital HD July 29 (the same day as Nerve) before it arrives on DVD and On Demand August 2.
An IM Global and Blumhouse International / Busted Shark Production, Viral is produced by Jason Blum, Sherryl Clark, and Matt Kaplan.
