Neon has just released the first look trailer for their eco-thriller ‘How to Blow Up a Pipeline.’ Attached to the theatrical version of Brandon Cronenberg’s Infinity Pool, the trailer has now made its way online. A breakout film at the 2022 version of the Toronto International Film Festival, the plot promises to take audiences on a thrilling ride through the world of environmental activism.
Directed by the talented Daniel Goldhaber, How to Blow Up a Pipeline follows a group of passionate activists who embark on a dangerous mission to dismantle an oil pipeline in West Texas. Described as a high-stakes heist intertwined with a radical exploration of direct action as climate activism, the film is set to captivate audiences and leave them on the edge of their seats.
The movie is based on the controversial nonfiction book by Andreas Malm and features a talented cast of rising stars. Leading the way is Ariela Barer, known for her work on “Runaways,” who not only stars in the film but also produced and co-wrote the feature alongside Jordan Sjol.
Also joining the cast is the breakout star of “Euphoria” and “You” Season 4, Lukas Gage, along with Kristine Froseth from “Sharp Stick,” Forrest Goodluck, Sasha Lane, Jayme Lawson, Marcus Scribner, and Jake Weary also co-star.
Broken into chapters and timed like a ticking bomb, the eco-thriller mostly takes a far-left stance and is completely anti-establishment. It will be interesting to see how Goldhaber balances this slipper slop with some nuance in his approach to this thrilling story.
Currently, at a comfortable 100% Rotten Tomatoes score with 21 registered fresh reviews, it will be interesting to see how people will react to the many swinging ideologies in the narrative.
How to Blow Up a Pipeline opens in movie theatres on April 7th, 2023.
