Trailer: Equals

Here it is, the official trailer for Equals brought to us by Drake Doremus (Breathe In, Like Crazy) who certainly has made his career on love, but in this case taking it into a drastically different environment. Silas (Nicholas Hoult) and Nia (Kristen Stewart) live in an emotionless society but when the two regain their feelings due to a mysterious disease they begin a forbidden affair which risks everything. A risk has also definitely been taken in giving us a trailer in which we can see the actors talking but the audio has been removed, leaving only the song of choice playing, does it add an air of mystery or is it simply annoying? That’s all entirely subjective but from what we can see, the harsh colours, fashion and behaviour, leaves all emotion sticking out like a sore thumb and increasing its strength tenfold, which should be perfect for Stewart but for Hoult this may be something very different. It’s interesting, it doesn’t give too much away and gives us a much stranger version of a utopian society.
