JoBlo took to its platform on Thursday to premiere the official trailer for writer/director Claudia Myers’ new movie, Above The Shadows. Gravitas Ventures picked the film up this past Spring and is setting a limited theatrical and digital release on July 19 with a cast headlined by Olivia Thirlby, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cohorts Alan Ritchson and Megan Fox, and with Jim Gaffigan and Tito Ortiz.
A supernatural tale follows a young woman (Olivia Thirlby) who has faded from the world to the point of becoming invisible. After more than a decade existing in the shadows, Holly meets the one man who can see her, Shayne Blackwell (Alan Ritchson), a disgraced MMA fighter. Holly discovers that it was one of her tabloid photographs that caused his downfall, and that she must restore him to his former glory if she wants to regain a foothold in the world around her. With Shayne, Holly awakens to love but also to the possibility that she may remain invisible forever.
Above The Shadows just had its world premiere this month at the Brooklyn Film Festival where it won Audience Choice among a line-up of 13 narrative features. The film also features key fight choreography from a team steered by Emmanuel Manzanares who I recently interviewed, and you can check that out here.
