New science fiction thriller and suspense
The trailer presents a future full of skyscrapers and neon lights in overpopulated macro-cities, a society in which relationships between humans have been practically forgotten and in which individual survival is the only objective of each individual. Therefore, Jack (Ryan Kwanten) decides to become a hit man.
One day, Jack crosses paths with April (Jillian Nguyen) and they fall in love; however, as Jack gets closer to April, his body deteriorates rapidly for some strange reason. Ultimately, Jack decides to enlist the help of scientist Bergman (Hugo Weaving), who discovers a man-made disease that Jack has been infected with. From here, Jack will try to continue to get closer to April while she discovers the secrets of her past that have led him to such a desperate situation.
Written and directed by Ivan Sen (Mystery Road), Expired (formerly known as Loveland), was quite a discovery for an actor as experienced as Weaving: “I loved the idea of this love story set in a city in the near future. It’s basically about the loneliness that comes from being divided in a mechanized world and the impossibility of love in a world where people are divided and dependent on machines,” says the actor.
Expired will be released on March 18, 2022.
