Jason Bateman in 'Disconnect' trailer
Tomorrow is the National Day of Unplugging, but after you watch the new trailer for Disconnect, you might yank the cord before midnight. The feature debut from documentary director Henry Alex Rubin (Murderball), Disconnect feels like a cyber version of Crash, in which Jason Bateman, Alexander Skarsgard, Paula Patton, and several others are predator and prey in various internet scams that lead to real-world disaster. A high-school kid gets
catfished Manti Te’o’d on Facebook, a reporter gets too close to her online-sex-selling subject, and a couple loses all their savings when their online identity is stolen.
