New Trailer: 'Unsane,' the Steven Soderbergh iPhone Movie

New Trailer: 'Unsane,' the Steven Soderbergh iPhone Movie New Trailer: 'Unsane,' the Steven Soderbergh iPhone Movie

We have been seeing more and more movies filmed on nothing but an iPhone and according to The New York Times, Soderbergh thinks that the iPhone is the "future" of filmmaking.

At this year's Sundance film festival, which Soderbergh was attending as executive producer of The King (a documentary on Elvis Presley and his impact on U.S. culture), the director of slick thrillers like Ocean's Eleven, Out Of Sight and Haywire made a rather interesting announcement. Yes, there are times when the framing and lighting make it obvious it was shot with a small device, but for the most part, the movie looks exceptional and makes me want to cry at how my videos recorded on a phone look nothing almost this impressive. It's that very reason that the movie has such a real and claustrophobic atmosphere that's apparent even in just the trailer.

The whole movie is shot on an iPhone, before him other filmmakers have also shot movies through phones but Soderbergh is one of the known filmmakers who has taken such a bold step.

This in itself isn't the first time a director has made use of Apple's smartphones to capture footage; Sean Baker's touching drama about transvestite prostitutes in LA, Tangerine, was shot the same way.

WhatsApp gets more convenient for Apple users with CarPlay integration
A multitasking bar will also show up in the CarPlay sidebar that will enable quick switch between tasks while on the move. And with the WhatsApp integration at least users won't get distracted each time a message pop up on their iOS device.

Unsane will be distributed independently through Soderbergh's Fingerprint Releasing, which also released last summer's Logan Lucky. Which is incredible if you consider that the trailer below actually looks of a decent quality. Magic can be brought on-screen even if you shoot a movie from an iPhone. I look at this as potentially one of the most liberating experiences that I've ever had as a filmmaker, and that I continue having.

"Unsane" hits theaters on March 23.

Unsane stars Claire Foy (The Crown), Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project), Jay Pharoah (Ride Along), Juno Temple (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), Aimee Mullins (Stranger Things), and Amy Irving (Carrie).
