The Flash‘s Robbie Amell and Australian actress Rachael Taylor star in ARQ, a dystopian SF Netflix Original Movie from Orphan Black writer, Tony Elliott.

What plot we can glean boils down to Amell’s character being shot by burglars after the titular ARQ (pronounced “ark”) a zero point energy wonder-widget that could save the world. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on your feelings regarding being shot over and over again) the high-tech McGuffin causes a stable time loop, meaning out hero can basically replay this level until he gets it right – or at least comes out the other side alive.

It seems high-concept, low-budget, which means we could maybe get some imaginative writing where FX and action beats would normally be inserted. Whichever way it goes, ARQ drops worldwide on Friday, September 16, 2016.
