Outside the Wire Trailer: Anthony Mackie Stars in New Netflix Sci-Fi Film
Netflix has released the full trailer for their upcoming sci-fi action film titled Outside the Wire, featuring a MCU alum Anthony Mackie as a special android-like soldier who takes a drone pilot lieutenant under his wing. The film will be available for streaming on January 15, 2021. Check out the video in the player below!
Set in the very near future, Outside the Wire centers around a disgraced drone pilot is sent into a deadly militarized zone where he finds himself working for an android officer tasked to locate a doomsday device before insurgents do. 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 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 announces plans to infiltrate the demilitarized zone and apprehend Viktor Koval, 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.
The film stars Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War), Damson Idris (Snowfall, Black Mirror), Emily Beecham (Into the Badlands), Michael Kelly (House of Cards), Pilou Asbæk (Game of Thrones) and Enzo Cilenti.
Outside the Wire is directed by Mikael Håfström from a screenplay co-written by Rob Yescomber and Rowan Athale. In addition to starring, Mackie will also produce the film alongside Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Ben Pugh, Erica Steinberg, and Jason Spire, who’s repping Mackie’s Inspire Entertainment.
The film marks Mackie’s latest collaboration with Netflix, who have worked together in the second season of the sci-fi series Altered Carbon and the sci-fi film IO. He will next be seen in Disney+’s highly-anticipated MCU series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
