Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.17.15] United Kingdom scifi action thriller



Anchor Bay's all set to release the head-spinning sci-fi actioner The Anomaly starring The Vampire Dairies' Ian Somerhalder. At last year's Edinburgh Film Festival, our own Simon Read called the film "slick", "energetic", and "entertaining", but did admit it suffered from some budget constraints.

The movie opens in theaters and digital HD on September 25th, followed by On Demand, Blu-ray, and DVD on October 6th.

SYNOPSIS: ​
Traumatized ex-soldier Reeve (Clarke) wakes up in the back of a moving van alongside a young boy (Parkinson) held prisoner. But after helping the boy escape, he comes to the terrifying conclusion that he’s the kidnapper. Even more startling, five years have passed since he was last awake. Ryan soon learns that he’s caught up in a futuristic conspiracy known as “Anomaly,” Ryan’s only connection with reality is the dogged pursuit of Ryan by the elegant but sinister Harkin Langham (Somerhalder), who –when he’s not trying to kill Ryan – explains how to survive his blackouts, lasting exactly 9 minutes and 47 seconds.

As he negotiates switching between parallel universes, Ryan teams up with the mysterious “Dana” (Knapp) to start unraveling the life-threatening mystery in which he’s the explosive center. With Harkin dogging and thwarting his every turn, Ryan must summon all his will to challenge his programmed destiny and regain his humanity.



THE ANOMALY ​stars and ​was directed by genre favorite Noel Clarke (star of Star Trek Into Darkness, “Doctor Who”) and written by Simon Lewis.

The film also stars Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect 1 and 2​)​, Art Parkinson (San Andreas), Luke Hemsworth (Infini) and Brian Cox (X-Men 2, Troy).
