‘The Numbers Station’ Trailer Needs John Cusack and Malin Ackerman to Save the World

The Numbers Station

Everybody keeps shooting at John Cusack. To get them to stop, he and Malin Ackerman are going to have to crack a long string of numbers because, as we all know, the left side of the brain is the sexiest. In The Numbers Station, Cusack plays a dishonored black ops agent who is biding time protecting Ackerman’s character as she works at a numbers station in the middle of nowhere. She’ll be glad to have him, though, when the station comes under attack and a plan to kill some important world figures gets set in motion.

This action thriller has been a long time in the making (Ethan Hawke was first attached to it back in 2010), and it represents a test for some newcomers. The first is screenwriter F. Scott Frazier, who has nailed down some work since, but who will see his first script sale finally emerge on the big screen here. The second is director Kasper Barfoed, who is not at all well known beyond his native Denmark.

The trailer looks pretty damned cool. Despite the generic gloss over everything, it has the promise of a deeper mystery looming in the numbers:

The Numbers Station is in theaters April 26th.
