Code 8, the movie from Arrow star Stephen Amell and his cousin Robbie Amell, has just dropped the official first look.
The film starring Robbie, Stephen, and Sung Kang will be available for preview in 10 cities around the world, beginning April 2 in Vancouver.
For those who aren’t aware, Code 8 is a feature-length film based off of a short film the two actors created back in 2016. That short film — and by extension the feature — is set in a world where over 4 percent of the population have special powers, but instead of being treated as heroes those with special abilities are treated as outcasts, forced to live in poverty. The short film follows Robbie’s character as he simply tries to earn a basic living, but ultimately comes into conflict with the law simply for being “special”.
Following the release of the short film, the actors launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, which raised over $2 million towards getting the film additional funding — potentially around $14-15 million.
Code 8 stars Robbie Amell, Stephen Amell, and Sung Kang. You can check out the short film at the Code 8 Movie YouTube here.
