AFRAID Trailer From Blumhouse and Sony

Sony Pictures has released the official trailer and poster for AFRAID, the new thriller from Blumhouse that was previously titled “They Listen.” AFRAID is rated PG-13 for sexual material, some strong violence, some strong language, and thematic material.

Written and directed by Chris Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy, The Golden Compass, The Twilight Saga: New Moon), the film centers on Curtis (John Cho) and his family, who are selected to test a revolutionary new home device: a digital family assistant called AIA.

Taking smart home to the next level, once the unit and all its sensors and cameras are installed in their home, AIA seems able to do it all. She learns the family’s behaviors and begins to anticipate their needs.

And she can make sure nothing – and no one – gets in her family’s way.
