New trailer and one sheet for The Signal arrives online

Focus Features have just released their first trailer and one sheet for William Eubank's (Love) The Signal.

The film's central premise sees Laurence Fishburne's (Man Of Steel) computer boffin luring two MIT freshman and a fellow hacker, known as Nomad, to a location somewhere in the Nevada backwoods.

After a terrifying confrontation with Nomad in the middle of the desert, the trio (Beau Knapp, Olivia Cooke and Maleficent's Brenton Thwaites) regain consciousness in captivity. Struggling to comprehend the true nature of their confinement, they discover things taking a turn for the disturbing.

It's a suitably intriguing trailer, mixing glitchy sound design with a sense of eeriness and baffled 'fish out of water' horror themes that are so unnerving in films like Cube (1997) and, to a more extreme extent, Hostel (2005) and Wolf Creek (2005).

This one heads into US movie theatres on 13 June with no UK release date as yet.
