Trailer: Technological murder mystery in Steven Soderbergh's "Kimi" Zoë Kravitz plays the lead role in the filmmaker's new thriller, which will be released on HBO Max in February. Not many months after Steven Soderbergh's "No Sudden Move" had its Swedish premiere on HBO Max, the director is back with a new thriller on the streaming service. We have now received a first, intense trailer for "Kimi", which arrives in February.
"Kimi" takes place in a society where basically everything we do is recorded, by the technology we own. At the center of the film is a blue-haired Zoë Kravitz (soon to appear in "The Batman"), in the role of the technician and lone wolf Angela. When she analyzes an audio file, she hears what sounds like a murder, but when her colleagues have a hard time believing her, she has to take the case further on her own I am Zlatan
According to Soderbergh, the film is based on today's high-tech world, where giant technology companies are gaining more and more power over people's private lives. Sources of inspiration include older films from the thriller genre, such as Francis Ford Coppola's "The Eavesdropping" and Alfred Hitchcock's "The Window to the Yard".
- As for influences, they are both films that I love and watch over and over again. And if you then, in this case, throw in a part of "Panic Room", then we have the mix we were looking for, the director tells IGN.
The script is written by David Koepp, who has previously written "Panic Room", but also films such as "Jurassic Park" and "Mission: Impossible". "Kimi" was both written and recorded under covid conditions, and the film's plot has also been set in a pandemic world.
