Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart are emotional rebels in new trailer for sci-fi movie Equals

A24 has released a new trailer for director Drake Doremus’ (Breathe In, Like Crazy) upcoming sci-fi love-story, Equals.

Starring Nicholas Hoult (the X-Men movie franchise) and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga), the movie takes place in a futuristic, totalitarian world where emotions have been eradicated (which reminds me an awful lot of the premise for Equilibrium) but a viral outbreak threatens to bring them back.

It's in this cold, emotionless world where Hoult and Stewart’s characters, Silas and Nia, fall in love. Awww.

Penned by Moon (if you haven't seen this movie yet, you're missing out) screenwriter Nathan Parker, the movie looks more like an intimate love story than a sci-fi movie, but I have to say that I'm intrigued.

Equals also stars Guy Pearce, Jacki Weaver and Bel Powley. It will open in theaters on July 15.
