Almost from out of nowhere comes Divinity. A new sci-fi thriller directed by Eddie Alcazar and produced by Steven Soderbergh. Here is the trailer.
Divinity is described as an “experimental movie” that:
“Centers on two mysterious brothers, who abduct a mogul during his quest for immortality. Meanwhile, a seductive woman helps them launch a journey of self-discovery.“
As I always say, I’m up for something a little different and Divinity certainly looks different. The movie stars Bella Thorne, Stephen Dorff, Scott Bakula, Moises Asias, Caylee Cowan, Karrueche Tran, and Moses Jackson.
It is written and directed by Eddie Alcazar, who’s only really known for some shorts, which all look like they were shot in black and white. Having someone like Soderbergh attached adds some weight though.
Some comments about the movie are:
“Our worlds collided when falling in love with Eddie’s film and vision for Divinity. The film represents a cultural crossroads of film, music, fashion and art. We believe that this partnership represents the beginning of a new era where stories can live on screen and off the screen by blurring the lines between a film itself and the integral components that compose a film’s DNA.“
Utopia and Sumerian
“I’m grateful to work with such forward thinking distributors like Utopia and Sumerian. I believe more audiences are looking to re-appreciate the art of film these days and having a company like Utopia/Sumerian support unique cinematic visions and take them to the big screen is a dream come true.“
“This is the best possible outcome imaginable and I’m very impressed and excited by how Utopia/Sumerian approached this deal. It all happened quickly and they have a bold, clear vision of how to get Divinity in front of a worldwide audience. The future starts now!“
“Divinity is a potent and timely avant-garde film that explores the human psyche around immortality, desire and fertility. The dystopian world Eddie Alcazar brings us into feels all too familiar with life today and I believe Divinity is a must see for the current generation.“
Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen
Divinity came out on 21st Jan, but this is the first we’re hearing about it. I plan on finding it somewhere and giving it a watch.
