Here's Your First Look at Kristen Stewart's Orwellian Sci-Fi Romance


Here’s your first peek at Equals, Kristen Stewart’s upcoming “sci-fi romance” costarring Nicholas Hoult. The relationship rumors should practically start themselves.

The photo, which comes via The Hollywood Reporter, reveals nothing but the fact that Kristen Stewart looks good in a nice, crisp blouse and Hollywood still defaults to Minority Report blue for dystopias. The synopsis:

The film is set in the future, when emotions are a thing of the past and a new breed of humans called Equals live in harmony. But eventually a disease starts activating emotions in its victims, who are then sent away and never heard from again. Silas (Hoult) becomes infected, and realizes Nia (Stewart) has emotions too, but is able to hide them. They must team up to escape their surroundings in order to survive.

Back in January, Stewart said it was kinda sorta an updated version of the 1956 adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984. (Sounds more like The Giver to me.) If somebody’s got contact information for the ghost of George Orwell, please do put me in touch.
