Kimi trailer finds Zoe Kravitz uncovering a crime in Soderbergh’s new thriller

Achieving any level of privacy in this day and age is a feat in and of itself. Whether you’re on the internet, out in public, or rinsing dishes in the kitchen sink near a window with no blinds, chances are you’re being watched. It’s a disturbing thought for certain, and now New Line Cinema and HBO have dropped a Kimi trailer that’s going to crank your paranoia to eleven.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Contagion, Magic Mike, Traffic), Kimi stars Zoe Kravitz (The Batman, High Fidelity) as a woman who works as a voice stream interpreter in a strange time when everyone and everything is being monitored and recorded. After hearing what she believes is a woman in distress, Kravitz’s character finds her reports of the potential crime falling on deaf ears by the people she works for. Eventually, Kravitz finds herself caught up in a conspiracy where the only person she can trust is herself. The Kimi trailer presents an intense tail of deception, danger, and a cover-up that suggests there’s more going on behind the curtain.

In addition to Kravitz, Kimi also stars Byron Bowers (No Sudden Move), Jaime Camil (Schmigadoon), Erika Christensen (Traffic), Derek DelGaudio (Derek DelGaudio’s In & Of Itself), Robin Givens (Riverdale), Charles Halford (Lucky Logan), Devin Ratray (Side Effects), Jacob Vargas (The 33), with Rita Wilson (Mamma Mia!).

The script is written by acclaimed screenwriter David Koepp, who also produces with Soderbergh’s frequent collaborator Michael Polaire.

Good grief, there’s nothing quite like a film that taps into the fears of those who feel as if they’re being monitored by Big Business. Or, as I like to call it, Government Man. If you carry a smartphone, chances are you’re being tracked by more corporations than you care to consider. How else do you think those targeted ads show up in your Instagram feed? Government Man is all around you. There is no escape.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand! What do you think of the new Kimi trailer? Will you be checking this film out when it comes to HBO Max? Let us know in the comments section below.

Kimi will stream exclusively on HBO Max beginning on February 10, 2022.
