A taste of Tarik Saleh-directed 'Metropia' has been provided by the animated film's newly-outed teaser trailer, previewing what the main character named Roger is experiencing in the alternate Europe.
The first teaser trailer of "Metropia" has arrived. Opened with a voiceover of a man calling for Roger, the footage shows Roger who is fast asleep suddenly wakes up. Though he keeps on hearing the voice in his head, Roger tries to go back to sleep, assuring himself that what he hears is only in his imagination. The teaser then moves on, presenting a compilation of clips through which it can be seen the meeting between Roger and Nina.
Set in a not-so-distant but terrifying Europe when the world is running out of oil and the net of undergrounds has been connected, "Metropia" follows a man from a Stockholm's suburb who tries to stay away from the underground. Constantly hearing a strange voice in his head, he soon finds out that his life is controlled in every detail. Needing to break free from it, he enlists a help from super-model Nina.
Presenting Vincent Gallo and Juliette Lewis as the voice cast for Roger and Nina respectively, the Atmo Metro animation is directed and co-scripted by Tarik Saleh. The feature film which also features the voices of Stellan Skarsgard and Alexander Skarsgard is yet to be given its U.S. release date.
