Above you'll find your first peek at Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson in REGRESSION, a supernatural mystery from THE OTHERS director Alejandro Amenabar. No, not too exciting, but should be something to hold onto while we wait for the film's theatrical release in August.
Here's the convoluted plot:
REGRESSION is set in a small Minnesota town in 1980 where a man is arrested for sexually abusing his daughter. He admits his guilt despite having no memory of it. With the help of a psychologist, he relives the memories and implicates a police officer as his partner in crime. The man’s estranged son and other townspeople are also suddenly able to relive suppressed memories of horrific abuse. At the same time, the local news reports blame a Satanic cult that has been performing rituals of orgies, assault, killing animals and even babies, for years. The officers are alarmed when similar reports come in from all around the country—they believe they’ve uncovered a national and possibly supernatural conspiracy. Is the abuse real, or something else?
Telefonica Studios, MOD Entertainment and MOD Producciones are producing REGRESSION, and The Weinstein Company will release it on August 28th in the U.S.; FilmNation is handling international distribution.
