The first trailer for Songbird has been released. You can watch it here:
The movie, produced by Michael Bay – of Armageddon (1998) and Pearl Harbor fame – is set in 2024, and will show the world in its fourth year of lockdown as it battles with Covid-23 – a mutation that is more deadly, with a 50 percent mortality rate.
US citizens who are unfortunate enough to contract the virus are dragged from their homes and dumped in quarantine camps.
Riverdale’s KJ Apa stars as Nico – a man who has Covid immunity, so spends his days dropping off deliveries and supplies around the city.
During the course of the movie, Nico finds love with Sara (played by Sofia Carson) – a woman he hasn’t actually met due to the strict lockdown rules.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Director Adam Mason said: “It’s a dystopian, scary world, but it’s a romantic movie about two people who want to be together, but they can’t.
“It’s Romeo and Juliet, but they’re separated by her front door and by the virus.”
