Ben Affleck Learns That Control Is An Illusion in the Trailer for Robert Rodriguez's HYPNOTIC

Ben Affleck goes on a mind-bending adventure in the trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s Hypnotic

Warner Bros has dropped our first look at Robert Rodriguez’s exciting new thriller Hypnotic. The reality-bending nail-biter stars Hollywood royalty Ben Affleck as detective Danny Rourke – a traumatized police officer who quickly finds himself wrapped up in a mystery that defies belief. One that will change his perception of the criminal element forever. But can he unravel the mystery of hypnotics and stop David Fichtner’s enigmatic villain before it’s too late?

Determined to find his missing daughter, detective Danny Rourke instead finds himself spiralling down a rabbit hole while investigating a series of reality-bending bank robberies where he will ultimately call into question his most basic assumptions about everything and everyone in his world. Aided by Diana Cruz, an unnervingly gifted psychic, Rourke simultaneously pursues and is pursued by a lethal specter – the one man he believes holds the key to finding the missing girl – only to discover more than he ever bargained for.



And if that isn’t enough to have you questioning your perception of reality, the studio has also shared the first poster from the movie. Check it out below.
