Parallel Trailer Suggests Not Even the Multiverse Can Help You Escape Grief


Parallel is a story that delves into multiverses, but it does so in a quiet, tragic way (though the trailer suggests there won’t be a lack of tense, action-based moments). The movie stars brothers Edwin and Aldis Hodge (the latter of whom played Hawkman in Black Adam) and was also written by them, along with Jonathan Keasey. Danielle Deadwyler (who has a stellar performance in HBO’s Station Eleven) stars in the film as well, with Kourosh Ahari (The Night) directing.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Parallel follows the story of Vanessa (Danielle Deadwyler) who takes refuge at her family’s lake house to grieve after suffering the loss of her child. Accompanied by her husband, Alex (Aldis Hodge), and his brother, Martel (Edwin Hodge), Vanessa attempts to regain her sense of normalcy after the tragedy. But soon after their arrival, she experiences an aberration when she is attacked by a parallel universe’s version of herself. Faced with the reality that multiverses exist, she must reconcile the fact that these parallel gates will either hold the key to releasing her grief or trapping her forever.

The trailer below expands on this premise, with at least one version of Vanessa wanting to search other realities to find one where her baby is still alive. There also is a “kill or be killed” situation, as apparently only one version of a person can exist in a given space or bad things… happen?

We can see the story unfold when Parallel premieres in theaters on February 23, 2024 and digitally on demand on February 27, 2024. icon-paragraph-end
