Set in a future where android technology has been majorly incorporated into the US military, the film follows drone pilot Thomas (Damson Idris, Black Mirror), who is sent to a militarised zone and finds himself working for an android officer (played by MCU star Anthony Mackie). A mission to locate a doomsday device soon gets much more complicated, as Thomas begins to realise that this tech-powered soldier he’s partnered with may be hiding some things. Yeah, tech in sci-fi: Can’t be trusted.
Director of the film is Mikael Håfström, whose credits include Stephen King adaptation 1408, Stallone-Schwarzenegger actioner Escape Plan and episodes of Netflix drama-thriller series Bloodline. The supporting cast includes Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones), Michael Kelly (House of Cards), Enzo Cilenti (Free Fire), and Emily Beecham (Into the Badlands).
Outside the Wire will be streaming on Netflix from January 15th.
