Welcome to the Legion!

EqualsA while back, Kristen Stewart described her upcoming futuristic romance film as a slightly updated version of the 1956 film 1984, based on George Orwell’s classic 1949 novel. It’s set in a society where emotions don’t exist. Today we have our first look at the film, from Like Crazy director Drake Doremus, from THR.

Here is the synopsis: “The film is set in the future, when emotions are a thing of the past and a new breed of humans called Equals live in harmony. But eventually a disease starts activating emotions in its victims, who are then sent away and never heard from again. Silas (Hoult) becomes infected, and realizes Nia (Stewart) has emotions too, but is able to hide them. They must team up to escape their surroundings in order to survive.”

Infected with emotions? Yeah, that sounds about right.
