A24 has premiered the first trailer for the highly anticipated “Civil War,” the new action film from acclaimed “Ex Machina” and “Annihilation” writer/director Alex Garland.

The story takes place in the United States in the not-so-distant future and has been dubbed a combination road movie, satirical war film and elevated shooter.

From the trailer, it begins when 19 states of the United States have seceded from the union and now is made of factions including the ‘Florida Alliance’ and the ‘Western Forces’ which sees California and Texas on the same side.

The rest of the trailer follows what looks like a family, including Kirsten Dunst as a warzone photographer, making their way across a country gone mad.

The cast includes Wagner Moura, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Cailee Spaeny, Karl Glusman, Sonoya Mizuno, Jonica T. Gibbs, and Jess Matney.

Gregory Goodman, Andrew Macdonald, and Allon Reich will produce for A24 and DNA Films. The film is targeting a Spring 2024 release and will be available in IMAX.

This will mark Garland’s fourth officially directed feature, the third being the quirky horror film “Men”. Garland also penned the scripts for films like “Never Let Me go,” “Sunshine” and “Dredd,” along with creating and helming FX’s “Devs” series and co-writing the video game “Enslaved: Odyssey to the West”.
