Numb at the Edge of the End trailer

If you woke up this morning and thought, “Hey, I wonder what Hayden Christensen has been up to lately?”, today’s your lucky day. The former Anakin Skywalker has a new movie in post-production called Numb, at the Edge of the End, and we have the first NSFW trailer for all of you Christensaniacs (that’s what you die-hard Hayden fans call yourselves, right?) to check out below.

Numb, at the Edge of the End trailer

So…I guess that’s technically a movie, albeit one with a serious case of Blade Runner envy. A couple of quick observations here. First, I suppose Harvey Keitel as a Nazi-fighting bearded prophet has potential. Second, does that gang of hoodlums have some kind of superpowers, or are they just really good at jumping from high locations and landing on stairs like it’s no problem at all? Third, Christensen doesn’t look like he’s improved much since we last saw him.

The actor is reviled for his performance in the Star Wars prequels, and rightly so: he’s downright awful in those movies. And his post-Star Wars career hasn’t exactly lit Hollywood on fire: a handful of you may have seen Awake, Jumper, and Takers, but how many took the time to see Outcast, his medieval thriller opposite Nicolas Cage? Here’s the thing, though: Christensen was so great in the 2003 journalism film Shattered Glass that it’s almost enough to give him a pass for all of those other movies combined…almost. There’s always the chance this trailer doesn’t represent the final product, but based on what we see here, I’m personally not sold on this one.

What did you think about this Numb at the Edge of the End trailer? Does it look like something you’d seek out? Unfortunately, the movie doesn’t have U.S. distribution yet, but we’ll keep an eye out and let you know if it gets picked up or if another trailer makes its way online.

Tov Matheson (Hayden Christensen) is a war veteran with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) who perceives that the end of the world is coming. After establishing a relationship with a dubious Messiah (Harvey Keitel), he leaves his normal life and begins the construction of a shelter underground, training himself, in an extreme way, at the cost of losing everything and making people believe he is insane. When he also believes it, something extraordinary happens which makes the people around him question whether he is insane after all.
