British spy thriller Newcomer has received a new trailer ahead of its premiere at Raindance Film Festival tonight in London. Check it out below…
Rookie Alex Hark (James Floyd, My Brother The Devil)’s tireless determination has earned him a spot on one of the most elite industrial espionage teams in the world. His mentor Daniel Frost (Anthony M. LaPaglia, Without A Trace) believes he is destined for greatness if he can just trust his eyes and ears.
On his first mission Alex serves as a lookout. He must keep the street clear. Alex softens when a woman needs help into the building, but moments later Alex listens over the radio as his entire team is killed. When he returns to the safe house his superiors listen to the recording of the mission and assume Alex is the killer. Escaping torture, Alex finds himself on the run in a foreign country with only the recording to guide him. He must find the woman who killed his mentor, the one man who believed in him.
After finding safety with Daniel’s old friend Brana (Predrag Ejdus) and his granddaughter Anja (Noémie Merlant, Death In Love), Alex begins to piece together what happened in that room by listening to the recording. An unidentified sound sends him back to the original location of the mission for answers. Alex discovers that Daniels closest allies betrayed him and he must track them down to avenge his beloved mentor.
Newcomer is directed by Kai Barry and stars Anthony M. LaPaglia, James Floyd, Predrag Ejdus and Noémie Merlant.
