Watch 'The Flash's Robbie Amell Get Sucked Into a Sci-Fi 'Groundhog Day' in First 'ARQ' Trailer

Sep 06, 2016

Groundhog Day is the kind of rare movie that's embedded itself so deep into pop culture that people who haven't even seen the movie still know what it's about. Comparing something to Groundhog Day is shorthand for any story about a person experiencing the same moment over and over again. It's not even a concept that the 1993 Harold Ramis movie created, but it's earned its spot as the go-to comparison point any time a vaguely similar movie comes up. That's why it's so hard to not think of the Bill Murray classic when watching the first trailer for ARQ

Superhero TV show regulars Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Rachael Taylor (Jessica Jones) star in the film as a couple who get stuck in a time loop right as a group of masked people break into their house to steal a presumably secret invention. It's the feature film directorial debut of Tony Elliott, who has worked on Orphan Black and Hunters, and looks like it'll really scratch the itch of anyone who likes sci-fi movies that put an emphasis on ideas over megabudget spectacle. 

Check it out.

ARQ will be premiering in the coming week at the Toronto International Film Festival before quickly heading to Netflix on September 16.

Oh, and in case you missed it, today happens to be a good day for Amell-related videos. Here you can see Robbie Amell's cousin, Stephen Amell, in a deleted scene from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
