Here’s something from the minds of the guys behind Catfish, in what feels like a cross between The Purge and Black Mirror. It’s a dark prophecy of how far we will take immersive gaming, as two characters are drawn into a live-action life or death challenge.
Check out the trailer and tell us what you think. Nerve is in UK cinemas from 12th August 2016.
Starring Emma Roberts (We’re the Millers, 18.104.22.168, American Horror Story) and Dave Franco (22 Jump Street, Bad Neighbours 2, Now You See Me 2), NERVE follows industrious high school senior, Vee Delmonico (Emma Roberts), who has had it with living life on the sidelines. When pressured by friends to join the popular online game Nerve, Vee decides to sign up for just one dare in what seems like harmless fun. But as she finds herself caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition, the game begins to take a sinister turn with increasingly dangerous acts, leading her into a high stakes finale that will determine her entire future.
Directed by Henry Joost (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3&4) and Ariel Schulman (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3&4) NERVE also stars Juliette Lewis (Wayward Pines, Due Date), Emily Meade (Money Monster, Trespass, Young Adult), Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black, The Catch), Miles Heizer (Memoria, Parenthood), Kimiko Glenn (Orange is the New Black) and American Rapper and Actor Machine Gun Kelly.
