Brandon Cronenberg’s Possessor looks like a smart amalgamation of Inception and The Matrix. It’s a high concept sci-fi thriller starring Andrea Riseborough about brain implants, mind control and assassinations. Brandon Cronenberg is the son of the great David Cronenberg and from this trailer you can see that they also seem to share similar cinematic DNA.
Starring Andrea Riseborough, Christopher Abbott, Tuppence Middleton, Sean Bean, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rossif Sutherland and Raoul Bhaneja – Possessor opens on 9 October 2020.
From the visionary mind of writer/director Brandon Cronenberg, Possessor is an arresting sci-fi thriller about elite, corporate assassin Tasya Vos. Using brain-implant technology, Vos takes control of other people’s bodies to execute high profile targets. As she sinks deeper into her latest assignment Vos becomes trapped inside a mind that threatens to obliterate her.
