‘Divinity’ Red Band Trailer: Eddie Alcazar’s Wild Retro Sci-Fi Film Stars Scott Bakula, Stephen Dorff, And Bella Thorne

By most accounts, Eddie Alcazar’s Divinity is one of the wildest, most bold films to emerge from Sundance. There’s a reason it caught the attention of Steven Soderbergh, who is aboard as a producer. And his backing seems to be working, as the retro sci-fi film with the eclectic cast is expanding into wide release this week, preceded by a brand new red band trailer.

Scott Bakula, Stephen Dorff, and Bella Thorne, along with Moises Arias, Jason Genao, and Karrueche Tran star in the film which features Alcazar’s unique visual style that he likes to call “Meta-Scope”. You can get a taste of it in this new trailer, which is definitely NSFW.

Here’s the synopsis: Utopia and Sumerian invite you to experience DIVINITY, from writer-director-producer Eddie Alcazar (PERFECT, FUCKKKYOUUU, THE VANDAL), Executive Produced by Steven Soderbergh. Set in an otherworldly human existence, scientist Sterling Pierce (Scott Bakula) dedicated his life to the quest for immortality, slowly creating the building blocks of a groundbreaking serum named “Divinity.” Jaxxon Pierce (Stephen Dorff), his son, now controls and manufactures his father’s once-benevolent dream. Society on this barren planet has been entirely perverted by the supremacy of the drug, whose true origins are shrouded in mystery. Two mysterious brothers (Moises Arias and Jason Genao) arrive with a plan to abduct the mogul, and with the help of a seductive woman named Nikita (Karrueche Tran), they will be set on a path hurtling toward true immortality.

Sound nutty? Check out Divinity for yourself in theaters this Friday, November 3rd.
