"What if every breath, every sound, every moment was recorded?" That’s the tagline of Steven Soderbergh’s new thriller KIMI… and in a world full of Alexas and Siris, it’s not really that far-fetched.
The film follows Zoë Kravitz, who works for a company collecting data from 'KIMI' home devices. Sound familiar? After hearing what sounds like a murder on one customer’s voice stream—and learning that the company might be trying to cover it up—the agoraphobic homebody might just have to leave her apartment and take matters into her own hands.
The trailer for the surveillance thriller is giving us major Big Brother vibes, with a dash of Panic Room too (which makes sense since this was written by screenwriter David Koepp, who penned that 2002 David Fincher thriller).
Will KIMI join HAL (2001: A Space Odyssey) and Samantha (Her) on the list of most unsettling AI characters in movies? Perhaps. We'll know soon enough when the film starts streaming on HBO Max on Feb. 10.
