‘KIMI’ Trailer: Zoe Kravitz Stars In Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Rear Window’-style Pandemic Thriller

The pandemic has led to most of us being stuck indoors for unhealthy amounts of time. That kind of thing can have long-lasting effects that I’m not sure we’re ready to deal with. Steven Soderbergh approaches the issue in the form of a Rear Window-esque thriller titled KIMI, starring The Batman and High Fidelity‘s Zoe Kravitz.

In KIMI, Kravitz plays a woman most of us can relate to. Stuck in quarantine like the rest of us, she’s learned to rely almost entirely on the digital comforts of home, does ZOOM meetings in her cozy houseclothes, and has taken perhaps an obsessive interest in her neighbors. She also has a ridiculous job as a voicestream interpreter that allows her to work remotely. It’s through this profession that she believes she’s intercepted a premeditated murder, captured on her Alexa-like device, Kimi.

You think anybody believes her? Does anybody EVER believe it when this happens in the movies? Of course not.

The script was penned by David Koepp, and is the latest in Soderbergh’s deal with HBO Max. His most recent films No Sudden Move and Let Them All talk were on the streaming network.

KIMI will stream on HBO Max beginning February 10th.
