If there is one science fiction trope we love the most, it would have to be the time loop. And if there is one young actor we want to see more of on the big and small screen it is Robbie Amell. Both of them come together next week in the world premiere of the science fiction movie ARQ, only on Netflix.
We’re big fans of Robbie Amell. He was the first actor to bring Firestorm to life in CW’s The Flash and Arrow. We’ve also met him in person and think he’s one of the nicest actors around. He’s got charisma that is reflected on the screen much like a young Tom Cruise, and his career is only going up.
And we can’t get enough of time loops. We’ve discussed them before here at borg.com, that awesome story tool that allows characters to repeat a period of time and usually offer a chance to repair the past. You’ve seen time loops used to great effect in films like Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow, Source Code, Donnie Darko, TimeCop, Looper, the Final Destination series, in Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five, on television series like Tru Calling, First Edition, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Eureka, Haven, and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Here’s a preview of Robbie Amell, along with Rachael Taylor and Gray Powell, in ARQ, from director Tony Elliott (Orphan Black):
Look for ARQ only on Netflix premiering next week, September 16, 2016.
