After a successful world premiere at Austin’s famous Fantastic Fest, plus a series of festival screenings both international and nationwide, Gille Klabin’s psychedelic sci-fi adventure-comedy The Wave is arriving in theaters nationwide and Video on Demand January 17, 2020.

Justin Long (Die Hard 4.0, Accepted) and Donald Faison (Scrubs, Clueless) lead the unique modern-day parable that follows Frank (Long), an opportunistic insurance lawyer, who thinks he’s in for the time of his life when he goes out on the town to celebrate an upcoming promotion with his co-worker, Jeff (Faison). However, their night takes a bizarre turn when Frank is dosed with a hallucinogen that completely alters his perception of the world. The drug takes him on a psychedelic quest through board meetings, nightclubs, shootouts, and alternate dimensions. As Frank jumps between reality and fantasy, he finds himself on a mission to find a missing girl, himself…and his wallet. Check out the trailer below!


The stellar cast of The Wave also includes Tommy Flanagan (Sons of Anarchy, Braveheart), Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), Katia Winter (The Catch, Sleepy Hollow series), and Ronnie Gene Blevins (Joe, True Detective).
