In Jared Moshe’s Aporia trailer, a grief-stricken mother uses a secret time machine to rescue her husband from a terrible fate.
Grief is a complicated emotion. People say that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, but what if you can go back and change the past? In today’s Aporia trailer, Judy Greer plays a mother devastated by loss who alters time and space to change the course of history. However, manipulating the laws of time is dangerous, and the results could be worse than the event you hoped to change.
In the Aporia trailer, Greer’s Sophie learns about a secret time machine built by her husband’s best friend, played by Payman Maadi. Sophie thinks she can bring her husband back after he dies in a tragic drunk-driving accident, but the consequences of her actions could lead to losing her teenage daughter or worse.
Jared Moshe (The Ballad of Lefty Brown, Silver Tongues) directs from his own script, with Greer (Ant-Man, Jurassic World, 27 Dresses), Edi Gathegi (The Harder They Fall, Princess of the Row), Payman Maadi (13 Hours, Camp X-Ray), and Faithe Herman (Shazam!, Watchman, This Is Us) starring as the main cast.
In Moshe’s Aporia trailer, Sophia’s world is rocked by the loss of her husband. With the crippling sensations of loss looming over her like a shadow, her husband’s friend offers her the chance to alter the past, defying the laws of time and space. After a seemingly successful trip to change the future, Sophia discovers her defiant actions against fate could lead to a disturbing alternate timeline.
Moshe’s emotional, time-bending thriller is set to have its world premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival on July 27, ahead of its U.S. theatrical release by Well Go USA roughly two weeks later. Aporia then hits theaters on August 11, 2023. Neda Armian and T. Justin Ross, with David Lawson, Peter Van Steemburg, Dennis Walker, Doris Pfardrescher, Christopher Alender, David A. Smith, Tyler Gould, and Matthew Helderman produce, with Luke Taylor executive producing.
If you could go back and change the past, would you? If movies and science have taught me anything, it’s best to let the chips fall where they may and not invite chaos into my already-complicated life.
