After earning plaudits at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the new thriller Searching is making its way to theaters.
It’s a film that stars John Cho, who we see using social media, the web, and digital things to try and track down his missing 16-year old daughter. It sounds, on the surface, like it has something in common with the Blumhouse horror Unfriended, which is getting a sequel this summer too.
Debra Messing, Joseph Lee and Sarah Sohn star in the film, that’s directed by Aneesh Chagantry. Chagantry co-wrote the script too with Sev Ohanian.

Here’s the official synopsis:
After David Kim (John Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever.
