The new movie Profile looks like it’s going to be a nail-biting thriller based on the suspenseful trailer that was just released!
The film, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, follows an undercover British journalist (Valene Kane) in her quest to bait and expose a terrorist recruiter (Shazad Latif) through social media, while trying not to be sucked in by her recruiter and lured into becoming a militant extremist herself.
The unconventional thriller plays out entirely on a computer screen in the Screenlife format, pioneered by Bekmambetov. The Screenlife format will look similar to fans of John Cho‘s movie Searching and that’s because Bekmambetov produced that movie as well!
Valene is best known for her work in the BBC Two series The Fall.
Profile, which had its world premiere at the 2018 Berlin Film Festival, hits theaters on May 14. Watch the trailer below!
