What if we lived in a world where your inner thoughts were always said aloud, and sometimes those same thoughts could even become more powerful than you?

Chaos Walking

Science Fiction / 2021 / PG-13

A young man must protect a mysterious woman in a dystopian world where all the females have disappeared.

The first trailer for the long-awaited Tom Holland/Daisy Ridley film "Chaos Walking" was released today, and boy was it worth the wait.

The trailer starts with Ridley's character Viola in space for one peaceful moment just before she makes a crash landing on the nearest planet.

Upon her arrival, she's discovered by Holland's character Todd who is very surprised to find her, as he claims to have never seen a girl before.

From their first interaction, we notice that one of the first things we hear from Todd are weird, distorted voices which appear to be his thoughts somehow conveyed without him actually saying anything.

These voices even manifest themselves into some kind of dark cloud that surrounds his head, wavering with every subsequent fleeting thought that crosses his mind.

We quickly find out that the reason Todd hasn't seen a woman before is because they're all dead and the reason we can see and hear his thoughts is because every man on this planet deals with that same issue, which they refer to as their "Noise."

As the trailer continues, we see the "Noise" is more than just sound... it can also turn into a physical form of what you might be thinking.

Because Viola doesn't have her own "Noise," she poses a threat to the rest of their society because no one knows what she's actually thinking.

With the help of Todd and his powerful thoughts, she attempts to evade those who wish her harm.

After viewing the insane preview, we agree, "Chaos Walking" is the appropriate title for this supernatural thriller.

To truly get the picture, watch the trailer below.
