Not to be confused with Stephen King’s horror masterclass, the first trailer for John Moore’s techno-thriller I.T. has booted online.
Arriving to us via Yahoo Movies, the slick and striking sizzle reel places Pierce Brosnan in the shoes of well-to-do businessman Mike Regan, one comfortably at the top of his game with more money than sense. Housed up in his own futuristic version of Fort Knox, Regan’s home is ripped straight from a George Orwell novel, with scores of cameras and smart devices littering all four corners of this ultra-modern abode.
Enter Ed. He’s an unremarkable technician who is given unprecedented access into Regan’s family life after lending his CEO a helping hand when a board meeting goes south. But in true action-thriller fashion, I.T. devolves into a spat between Ed and Regan, with the former launching a full-scale digital attack on Pierce Brosnan’s hapless family man.
Cue the ‘cat-and-mouse’ clichés. Here’s the synopsis:
Mike Regan is a successful, self-made man who has it all: a gorgeous wife, a beautiful teenage daughter and a sleek, state-of-the-art “smart home”. But he soon finds himself in a deadly, high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse when his I.T. consultant, Ed, starts using his skills to stalk Mike’s daughter and endanger his family, his business, and his life. In a world where there is no privacy, and personal secrets can go viral by the click of a mouse, Mike needs to rely on his old connections to defeat a new kind of nemesis.
Look for I.T. to hit theaters and VOD on September 23.
