Dan Stevens is everywhere. This year alone, the former Downton Abbey star has invaded the screens, both big and small. Not only does he star in Disney’s mega-hit live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast (the top seller of 2017 so far), but he was featured in an eclectic mix of features including Colossal starring Anne Hathaway and Norman starring Richard Gere. Above that, he starred in FX’s Legion and was featured in HBO’s High Maintenance, and that’s just this year alone.
For his next trick, Stevens headlines the science fiction film Kill Switch, coming to select theaters on June 16th. Check out the trailer below.
The synopsis reads: “Acclaimed writer-director Tim Smit explodes on to the scene with his futuristic, VFX-heavy feature debut! Kill Switch charts the story of a pilot battling to save his family and the planet, based on Smit’s short What’s In The Box? Set in a future version of the world, the video game style plot follows an experiment for unlimited energy, harnessing parallel universes, which goes wrong. Chased by drones and soldiers, pilot and physicist Will Porter must race through an imploding world to get the Redivider box to a tower, which will save humanity, including his family, in the real world.”
Stevens returns to the big screen later this year with roles in the biopic Marshal and as Charles Dickens in The Man Who Invented Christmas. He also stars alongside Rebecca Hall in the romance Permission, which recently debuted at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. He is currently filming Apostle for The Raid director Gareth Evans.
