“You should have seen your facial expression!” Lionsgate has unveiled the trailer for an action thriller mystery film titled Broken, made by the Spanish filmmaker Luis Prieto. Divorced Chris Decker is a wealthy tech VC living in a high-tech house of his own design in the hills, physically and emotionally protected from the outside world. His life changes when he meets Sky, a beautiful hopeful actress who pulls him out of his shell. Love is in the air … or is it something else? Sky’s strange behavior makes Chris suspect that she has more sinister intentions, especially when Sky’s roommate is found dead out of nowhere … Cast Cameron Monaghan like Chris, Lilly Krug as Sky, plus Frank Grillo, Sasha Luss, and John Malkovich. This is my kind of nightmare scenario where your boyfriend turns out to be a ploy for others to get into your life and mess with it, just like Finchers. The game. But this one looks a little too crazy, with a lot of weird twists and turns.
Here are the two official trailers (+ poster) for Luis Prietos Broken, directly from Lionsgates YouTube:
In the tradition of Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct, this dazzling action thriller stars Oscar nominees John Malkovich and Frank Grillo.

But Sky’s strange behavior leads Chris to suspect that she has more sinister intentions, especially when Sky’s roommate is found dead for mysterious reasons. Broken is directed by Spanish filmmaker Luis Prieto, director of the films Express condom, Pusher, and Kidnap previously, as well as some TV work and shorts. The script is written by David Loughery (not the same as David Lowery). This has not premiered at any parties or anywhere else as far as we know.
