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.
