'Outside The Wire' Trailer: It's The Year 2036 In Anthony Mackie-Damson Idris Netflix Film

Netflix has dropped the full-length trailer for the streaming giant’s upcoming film, Outside the Wire. 

In the film, a drone pilot is sent into a deadly militarized zone and finds himself partnered with an android officer on a mission to stop a doomsday device.

Here’s the official synopsis: In 2036, America serves as a peacekeeping force and human troops on both sides are supported by robot combatants called Gumps and drone pilots monitoring skirmishes from thousands of miles away. But after headstrong drone pilot Lieutenant Harp (Idris) disobeys a direct order to intervene in a conflict, the Army deploys him to a military outpost to confront the human costs of his button-pushing. Harp’s expectations of guarding a fence are upended when his new commanding officer Captain Leo (Mackie) announces plans to infiltrate the demilitarized zone and apprehend Viktor Koval (Pilou Asbæk), a warlord who intends to launch a network of dormant nuclear weapons. Soon, Harp learns that his theoretical experience as a drone pilot means little out on the battlefield under enemy attack — especially after discovering that Leo is an A.I.-enhanced supersoldier whose strength, speed and demand for results promise to turn his real-world education into a trial by fire.

Mikael Håfström (Escape Plan) is the director with Rob Yescombe and Rowan Athale as the writers. Mackie produces the film with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones for Automatik, Ben Pugh and Erica Steinberg for 42, and Jason Spire for Inspire Entertainment. Executive producers are Josh Horsfield, Fred Berger for Automatik, Rory Aitken for 42 and David U. Lee for Leeding Media. Charlie Morrison is a co-producer for 42.
