ARQ Trailer: It’s Essentially a Dystopian, Terrifying Groundhog Day


Déjà vu has never looked more grim. In Netflix's newest original film, ARQ, Robbie Amell and Rachael Taylor (Jessica Jones) live in a dystopian future in which they're targeted by a deadly gang of home invaders who hope to obtain experimental energy technology. The new tech was invented by its engineer (Amell) to end the world's wars, but it somehow backfires by creating an infinite time loop that causes the couple to relive their terrifying — and potentially deadly — invasion over and over again. (Seriously, those gas masks are not cool.) Directed by Tony Elliott (Orphan Black), ARQ is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival later this month. What would Bill Murray think?
