Hypnotic Trailer

“Are you familiar with the concept of hypnotics?” Learn more in this trailer. Ketchup Entertainment has revealed an official US trailer for Hypnotic, a sneaky mystery thriller from Robert Rodriguez, which he also co-wrote and produced. This recently premiered as a work-in-progress at SXSW, with a final release set for May in US theaters. This looks super twisty and deceptively clever! A detective becomes entangled in a mystery involving his missing daughter and a secret government program and soon finds himself spiraling down a rabbit hole investigating reality-bending bank robberies. Ben Affleck stars as Daniel Rourke, with Alice Braga, William Fichtner, Jeff Fahey, Kelly Frye, JD Pardo, and Hala Finley. This trailer has some strong Inception vibes, with all the reality-bending, as well as some Fincher flair. Love seeing William Fichtner in this as the “bad guy” trickster, great casting choice for that role. I am absolutely in for this ride.

Here’s the first official trailer (+ poster) for Robert Rodriguez’s Hypnotic, direct from YouTube:
