‘Outside the Wire’ Trailer: Anthony Mackie is an Android Soldier in Netflix Sci-Fi Action Film


Netflix has released the teaser trailer for Outside the Wire, an upcoming sci-fi actioner with MCU star Anthony Mackie playing a not-quite-human US soldier.

The film is set in a future where android technology is in full swing in the military. Damson Idris (Snowfall, Black Mirror) plays a drone pilot who is sent into a deadly militarized zone where he finds himself working for Leo (Anthony Mackie), an android officer. Their mission: locate a doomsday device before the insurgents do.

Director is Mikael Håfström, whose credits include 1408, The Rite, Escape Plan and five episodes of Netflix series Bloodline. It could be a decent actioner. Although the trailer doesn’t suggest much in the way of originality, it does tease some slick combat sequences. Plus, Mackie and supporting cast mates such as Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones) and Michael Kelly (House of Cards) make for solid players. We’ll see.

Outside the Wire will be streaming on Netflix from January 15th.
