Exciting First Trailer For The East – Project Mayhem Meets The Edukators?

Some of the story elements in The East seem similar to those on The Sound of My Voice, the first feature co-written and directed by Zal Batmanglij and co-written by and starring Brit Marling.

For sure, both detail what happens when undercover agents get in over their head.

Sound of My Voice was about a cult, while in The East, we’re dealing with a group of radical subversives – something like The Edukators or Fight Club‘s Project Mayhem, perhaps.

This first trailer does make it seem like edge of your seat stuff. The cast is cracking too – Marling, Ellen Page, Toby Kebbell, Patricia Clarkson.

You can download the trailer in HD from Apple. If you didn’t see The Sound of My Voice, it’s available on DVD and Blu-ray now and comes highly recommended.
