Watch the first intense trailer for Dominic Monaghan's sci-fi thriller, Half Life

The first trailer for an upcoming sci-fi thriller movie titled Half Life (not to be confused with Half-Life, the awesome video game) has dropped. 

Deadline reports that Epic Pictures Group (JeruZalem, Nina Forever) has nabbed the rights to Half Life, a movie set in the near future. The story follows a safety inspector (Sarah Habel, Whip It, Hostel III) sent to investigate when a remote nuclear waste repository mysteriously goes offline.

While there, she bumps into the plant's only employee, played by Lost’s Dominic Monaghan, a paranoid and suspicious recluse appropriately named Robinson. The newly formed duo also encounters an injured stranger (Tom Sizemore) claiming to have knowledge as to what really happened [Insert sounds of impending doom].

Here’s the official synopsis:

In the near future, where the world relies on renewable energy, a safety inspector is sent on a dangerous mission to a remote nuclear power plant after it suddenly goes offline. With the world on the brink of a nuclear meltdown, she begins to have doubts about the sanity — and the identities — of the very people she must rely on.

The movie is directed by Dagen Merrill (Beneath, Murder in the Dark) and produced for Lifeboat Productions by Jaime Burke and Vahan Paretchan.

Half Life is currently in post-production and will be released sometime in 2016.
