Anonymity is the enemy in the international trailer for Andrew Niccol’s Anon

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Starring Clive Owen and Amanda Seyfried, ANON takes place in a near-future world where there is no privacy, ignorance, or anonymity. All private memories are recorded and crime has almost ceased to exist, but in trying to solve a series of unsolved murders, Sal Friedland (Owen) stumbles onto a young woman (Seyfried) who appears to have subverted the system and disappeared. She has no identity, no history, and no record. Sal realizes it may not be the end of crime but the beginning. This mystery woman is known only as The Girl, and Sal must find her before he becomes the next victim. ANON was written and directed by Andrew Niccol, who helmed GATTACTA, SIMONE, LORD OF WAR, and IN TIME, but has surprisingly flown under my radar until now, and although it's a little hard to judge just what we're being presented with in the international trailer, I'm always curious to see what Niccol's has to say.

Netflix acquired the U.S. and some international rights to ANON last year, but hasn't announced a release date just yet.
