With the first teaser poster for Knowing thanks to the good people at AICN, we have finally gotten around to covering the film's teaser trailer as well.
Knowing Poster and Trailer
In 1958, as part of the dedication ceremony for a new elementary school, a group of students is asked to draw pictures to be stored in a time capsule. But one of the students, a mysterious girl who seems to hear whispered voices, fills her sheet of paper with rows of apparently random numbers instead.
Fast forward 50 years to the present: A new generation of students examines the contents of the time capsule and the girl's cryptic message ends up in the hands of young Caleb Myles. But it is Caleb's father, professor Ted Myles (Nicolas Cage), who makes the startling discovery that the encoded message predicts with pinpoint accuracy the dates, death tolls and coordinates of every major disaster of the past 50 years. As Ted further unravels the document's secrets, he realizes it foretells three additional events—the last of which hints at destruction on a global scale and seems to somehow involve Ted and his son.
While I fear we may soon grow tired of these doomsday films, I have to admit that at least the teaser poster is pretty cool. Since Nicolas Cage hasn't been doing too well in the sci-fi genre of late, I'm surprised that Summit felt that namedropping him was necessary.
