New trailer for the upcoming Alex Proyas‘ sci-fi thriller “Knowing” has been released.
In 1958, as part of the dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students is asked to draw pictures to be stored in a time capsule. But one of the students, a mysterious girl who seems to hear whispered voices, fills her sheet of paper with rows of apparently random numbers instead.
Fast forward 50 years to the present: A new generation of students examines the contents of the time capsule and the girl’s cryptic message ends up in the hands of young Caleb Myles. But it is Caleb’s father, professor Ted Myles (Nicolas Cage), who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years.As Ted further unravels the document’s secrets, he realizes it foretells three additional events-the last of which hints at destruction on a global scale and seems to somehow involve Ted and his son.
Alex Proyas is director and co-writer of “Knowing” which stars Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne, Chandler Canterbury and Ben Mendelsohn.
“Knowing” is scheduled to hit theaters on March 20th, 2009.
