Netflix has released a teaser trailer for its upcoming sci-fi thriller Outside the Wire, from the studio that brought you “The Old Guard” and “Extraction”.
Directed by Mikael Hafstrom, the movie is set in the very near future and follows a disgraced pilot, Lieutenant Thomas Harp (Damson Idris), who is sent into a deadly militarized zone, where he finds himself working for an android military officer (Anthony Mackie), tasked to locate a doomsday device before insurgents do.
The cast also includes Emily Beecham, Michael Kelly, and Pilou Asbæk.
The trailer reveals that the android officer is “not like us,” but “stronger, faster, smarter”. The “Captain” tells Harp that they ride out at dawn and remove the advanced weapons from beyond the wire and when the young cadet says he doesn’t have any specialist training as a field agent, he replies that he’s “special enough” for both of them.
The song used in the trailer is Wins & Losses by Meek Mill.
Outside the Wire arrives on Netflix on January 15, 2021.
