Billed as “Lord of the Flies” for a new generation, Lionsgate has just released the first teaser trailer for their provocative new outer space thriller, “Voyagers,” and it’s got a sultry, hypnotic  vibe that reverberates through the confines of a deep-space colony ship in the near future.

Written and directed by Neil Burger (“Limitless,” “The Illusionist”), the film arrives in theaters and VOD on April 9 and stars Tye Sheridan, Lily-Rose Depp, Fionn Whitehead, Colin Farrell, Chanté Adams, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Viveik Kalra, Archie Madekwe, and Quintessa Swindell.

Burger’s trippy movie chronicles the voyage of 30 passengers on a multi-generational starship by focusing on this group of handsome, hand-picked candidates sent on an ambitious odyssey in search of a new home. Madness erupts as the drugged-out crew reverts to a devolved emotional state and paranoia ensues.
