Any film that opens with a missing-child tricks our emotions and draws us to the film. However, the trailer of the latest film by Robert Rodriguez not only hooks you with a lost child, but throughout the trailer, it provides thrills that you can’t turn your back on. The famous director who has gifted us with daunting films like “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “Predators,” and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico” has decided to delve into the psychotic mystery genre. Well, if we have your interest now, you might be excited to know that the protagonist is Ben Affleck. The “Hypnotic” trailer is mind-boggling with the twists, and you might just end up doubting everything you believed to be true. The film is not just about a missing girl but also about a heist. The entire film is sure to play with the audience’s mind and trick them at every possible nook and cranny.
We see the protagonist, Daniel Rourke, the police detective, and an anxious father whose daughter goes missing. In between his therapy sessions and his anxiety about his daughter, he is a dedicated police detective who is trying to solve an insane heist. But, as we said earlier, and as the name suggests, it is difficult to differentiate reality from the alternate reality that your brain tricks you into believing. Here is where you will appreciate the director for his ingenuity and Ben Affleck for his amazing acting skills. The trailer for “Hypnotic” is not a regular trailer that will either give away the story or keep you in utter darkness about the plot. The trailer (hopefully like the film) will play mind games with you.
‘Hypnotic’ Release Date
The film is set to be released on over 2000 screens in the United States on May 12. The film is releasing on the same day as “Love Again,” starring Priyanka Chopra.
No matter whether you support Ben Affleck as Batman or not, you cannot deny what a phenomenal actor he is. Affleck has given us films that have made us cry, laugh, and bite our nails in anticipation. From being “Batman” in DC films to his outstanding performance in “Good Will Hunting” (1997) with Matt Damon and Robin Williams to “Gone Girl” (2014) against Rosamund Pike, “Argo” (2012), Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” (2021), to his recent film “Air,” which was released on April 5 in the United States by Amazon Studios, he has constantly been commendable. The trailer assures us that we are in for some Ben Affleck charm once again. The antagonist in the film is William Fichtner, the amazing “Prison Break” star. We have also seen Fichtner in action in films like “Black Hawk Down” (2001), “The Lone Ranger” (2013), “Independence Day: Resurgence” (2016), “The Dark Knight” (2008), and many more. We have the Brazilian actress Alice Braga, who is mostly known for her performance in the series “Queen of the South” (2016-2021), and you also might remember her from “Predator” as well. Among the other actors, we have Dayo Okeniyi, JD Padro, and child actor Hala Finley.
‘Hypnotic’ Trailer: What To Expect From Ben Affleck Film?
We are not new to police detectives with an internal turmoil to battle. The protagonist, Daniel Rourke, is a police detective who thinks it is cool to defy the instructions and risk his life to get to the truth. The trailer opens with a voice asking what the person sees. Then we see a vision of a park where young children play, and soon we learn that (Ben Affleck) Daniel Rourke saw his girl in his session and lost her at the drop of a heartbeat. Soon his session is interrupted by a text message from his work; it reads something about the Bank of Austin, and someone called Nicks will pick him up in less than five minutes. Rourke’s therapist seemed concerned about him joining a task, but like any dutiful officer, he was ready. We watch the crime take place from a surveillance van and watch the antagonist play with people’s minds as he pleases. As he arrives inside the bank to investigate the crime, he finds a picture of his daughter in the safest room in the locker room. Although Rourke finds a way to find the criminal, he turns the policemen against Rourke with his words. However, even when there was more than one gun pointed at him, Rourke asked the antagonist about his daughter showing him the picture.
However, the antagonist escapes, leaving him clueless about his daughter. Soon, we are introduced to the concept of hypnosis. This is where even the trailer gets messy. It is said that nothing you see or hear is true, for when you are hypnotized, an alternative reality is created that has no common ties with the phenomenal reality. The detective finds it hard to distinguish reality from his idea of a realistic world. The trailer would undoubtedly hurt you, but at the same time, it would fuel your zeal to get to the bottom of the truth. The trailer is sure to excite the audience about the film. The anticipation for the film is high, and the audiences are already waiting for its release.
