First Trailer for Timur Bekmambetov’s Screenlife Thriller PROFILE

Bekmambetov continues to explore the 'Screenlife' format in this thriller.

Once known for bombastic big budget action movies like Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Ben-Hur, Russian director Timur Bekmambetov has spent the past few years pioneering 'Screenlife', a new way of telling stories in which the entire movie plays out on a laptop screen. Having produced both Unfriended movies and Searching, Bekmambetov now takes a crack at directing a Screenlife thriller himself with Profile.

The film stars Valene Kane as Amy, a London based journalist who uses the web to establish contact with an ISIS recruiter (Shazad Latif). You can read our review here.

Profile is in US cinemas from May 14th. A UK/ROI release has yet be announced.

Check out the first trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

PROFILE follows an undercover British journalist in her quest to bait and expose a terrorist recruiter through social media, while trying not to be sucked in by her recruiter and lured into becoming a militant extremist herself.
