The first trailer Kasper Barfoed’s action-thriller The Numbers Station has hit the web. In it, John Cusack protects Malin Akerman from bad guys with guns. They also look at a bunch of numbers on a computer (hence the title). Check it out below.
Written by F. Scott Frazier, the film follows veteran CIA black ops agent Emerson Kent (Cusack) who is given one last chance to prove he still has what it takes to do his job. His new assignment: guarding Katherine (Akerman), a code operator at a top-secret remote CIA “Numbers Station” where encrypted messages are sent and received. When an elite team of heavily armed assailants lays siege to the station, Emerson and Katherine suddenly find themselves in a life-or-death struggle against an unknown enemy. With the station compromised and innocent lives at stake, they must stop the deadly plot before it’s too late.
The trailer isn’t very clear on what’s happening. There’s a lot of talk of conspiracies and whatnot. But it still looks like a decent thriller. May be worth watching when it hits theaters on April 26, 2013.
