Crisis appears to be a modernized Traffic made gaunter with opioid abuse. Per the official synopsis, here’s our new lineup of intersecting drug tales: “A drug trafficker arranges a multi-cartel Fentanyl smuggling operation, an architect recovering from an oxycodone addiction tracks down the truth behind her son’s disappearance and a university professor battles unexpected revelations about his employer, a pharmaceutical giant bringing a new ‘non-addictive’ painkiller to market.” Gary Oldman, Armie Hammer, Evangeline Lilly, Greg Kinnear, Michelle Rodriguez, Luke Evans, Lily-Rose Depp, and Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi make up our new ensemble of actors who are very concerned with drugs in some way or another. This doesn’t have Traffic‘s color-coded segment gimmick, though, so we’re going to have to figure out which story we’re in through other context clues. What is this, a job?
Crisis hits theaters February 26, but you should almost certainly not risk going to a theater for Crisis. Just wait until it’s on-demand March 5.
