Full trailer for Shane Carruth's Upstream Color

Primer director Shane Carruth's new film is out this year. Here's the first full trailer for his sci-fi drama, Upstream Color...

What we've seen of Shane Carruth's Upstream Color has tiptoed around the movie's plot rather than revealed anything specific, with the teaser trailer we shared late last year coming across like an ominous indie tone poem. But the full trailer should provide a better idea of what the movie's about, shouldn't it? Well, not really. Providing a welter of ominous images - pigs gathered for slaughter, panicked or morose faces, a glimpse of a gun - and some extremely eerie music, the trailer is another exercise in atmosphere.

Shane Carruth's last film was the fantastic, intensely complicated Primer, and Upstream Color looks like a similarly grounded fusion of sci-fi and drama. "A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism," reads the current synopsis. "Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives."

Sounds great. Upstream Color opens in New York on the 5th April - when the film gets a UK date, we'll let you know.

The soundtrack to the trailer is wonderful.

I became some what obsessed with Primer. I think the problem with it was, that i spent all my time trying to unravel the plot and so didnt take time to enjoy everything else about the film.

Primer was absolutely my kinda movie, I loved everything about it and really had thought this guy has just dropped away, it's been so long... It looks beautiful and hopefully won't be pretentious... I didn't like tree of life cause it was too much...

As far as the soundtrack goes Luke, the slow bass in the second half makes me think of 'hang me up to dry' - Cold War kids. Which I always liked anyhow (against my usual intersests)... I loved the soundscape-y-ness of primer too...


looks neo futuristic set in the modern day!
Very Perfect Blue - defo going to see this one


If this is released in the UK under that spelling I hereby declare that I will vandalise & correct every single bit of marketing I see
