ORIGIN: Swedish Sci-Fi Thriller Gets A Rather Great First Trailer
Even without knowing what the movie's about, the first trailer for Origin (Bieffekterna) looks and sounds rather great. 

As an electronic beat burbles and babbles, a scientist begins by asking, "What does it mean to be human?" It turns out that experiments are being conducted to use elements of the influenza virus to slow down the aging process. That kernel of an idea propels the teaser, which is filled with arresting images that suggest there is much more of the story to tell. 

Here's some official verbiage: 

The film is directed by André Hedetoft and Andreas Climent, best known for their popular short films like Double Trouble and Logan and commercials for Alfa Romeo, Comviq and Cadbury. It stars Emelia Hansson (Wallander), Rikard Björk (Johan Falk), Rafael Pettersson (Bron/Broen) and Sandra Redlaff (Den fjärde mannen). The film is currently wrapping up post-production and will start its festival tour in [January] 2016.

Watch the Origin teaser below. We've also embedded the official YouTube version of the short film Double Trouble, which speaks well of the talents of the filmmakers. And we'll keep an eye out for when the film will debut.

I see (potential) festival accolades in the foreseeable future for Origins. ..Looks Great.!
On a separate note; ..may i pass/email DoubleTrouble along to MulDoon of SaturdayShorts-dom...?
I'll only do so if you give me the Aaie-Oh-Kay. ..but it might be his cup of tea.
