LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Ben Affleck is headlining a new science fiction action thriller called ‘Hypnotic’ which is directed by Robert Rodriguez, the brains behind the ‘Spy Kids' franchise. Affleck who has been away from the screens for a while but in tabloids due to her proximity to Jennifer Lopez, will don a role of a detective from the Austin Police Department in this futuristic film that is bound to entertain. Robert had written ‘Hypnotic’ almost 20 years ago but only recently got along with fellow screenwriter, Max Borenstein to rework the script. The tweaked script appealed to Hollywood superstar, Ben Affleck who joined the team in 2019.


'Hypnotic' is touted as an edge-of-the-seat thriller where Danny Rourke, played by Affleck, goes on a mind-bending journey after discovering that a string of high-profile bank robberies and his daughter’s disappearance might be connected. There are shades of Liam Neeson’s ‘Taken’ but the setting is mainly futuristic, giving the film an edge over its predecessors in the market. Given its suburban setting, let’s see the locations where the crew and the actors toiled to get this movie filmed.
