Meet Your Next Time Travel Movie: Synchronicity

Synchronicity is the new time travel film from Jacob Gentry, the director of 2007’s cult hit, The Signal. In Gentry’s new project, Chad McKnight plays a physicist who creates a device that can open up wormholes. After messing around with time and space, things start getting downright mysterious.

It looks like a futuristic noir story that is aiming for a Blade Runner or Dark City vibe. Here’s the trailer:

Time travel is my favorite type of sci-fi, so I’m always interested in seeing movies that offer a fresh take on the concept. A futuristic mystery looks like it should fit the bill quite nicely.

Synchronicity will be released in theaters and on VOD / iTunes on January 22, 2016.


Here’s the official synopsis:

From the creators of The Signal (Sundance 2007) comes SYNCHRONICITY, a mind-bending ‘Sci-fi Noir’ in the tradition of Blade Runner, Gattaca and Memento. Daring physicist Jim Beale has invented a machine that can fold space-time and ruthless corporate tycoon Klaus Meisner will stop at nothing to get it. When Jim uses the machine to tear open the fabric of the universe, a rare Dahlia appears from the future. But in order to keep the rights to his invention he must prove that it works by finding the flower’s identical match in the present. Jim soon discovers that the Dahlia lies in the hands of the mysterious Abby, who seduces him into revealing his secrets. Convinced that she is in league with Klaus to take ownership of his life’s work, Jim travels back in time to stop the conspiracy before it can happen. But once in the past, Jim uncovers a surprising truth about Abby, the machine, and his own uncertain future.
