Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez’s new thriller “Hypnotic” starring Ben Affleck (“Air”) just got its first trailer! “Hypnotic” will follow Austin, TX detective Danny Rourke as he desperately searches for his missing daughter. All while he also investigates a series of reality-bending bank robberies. These cases send him spiraling down a rabbit hole, leading him to question everything and everyone in his world.
With the aid of Diana Cruz, an unnervingly gifted psychic, Rourke enters into a game of cat and mouse with a lethal specter.
