Complete Unknown was completely unknown to me before this trailer came out. Now that it’s here, I still have little idea what the heck it is:
Going just with the basics, we have Rachel Weisz as some lady who can, I dunno, completely change her life circumstances on a whim. It could be a superpower. Meanwhile, Michael Shannon is a guy about to get married. She shows up at a party of his, and we discover that she disappeared from his life fifteen years ago. He’s all conflicted about it.
Riveting! Actually, this feels less like a trailer and more like a really boring movie condensed to two minutes (but still boring). Maybe there’s more than meets the eye here. If so, I hope a later trailer does a better job of sharing it with us.
Amazon Studios and IFC Films will release Complete Unknown on August 26.
