A mutated strand of coronavirus called COVID-23 wreaks havoc on the world in Songbird, produced by Michael Bay.

On Thursday, the first trailer for the pandemic thriller showed a world trapped in lockdown for four years, reaching 8.4 million deaths in a single year.

The movie takes place in 2024 and stars K.J. Apa and Sofia Carson, who play a couple separated by the pandemic and living under martial law. Apa’s character claims to be immune from the virus, which may help him as he searches for his girlfriend, who is forced to evacuate her apartment after her neighbor contracts the virus.

“It’s a dystopian, scary world, but it’s a romantic movie about two people who want to be together, but they can’t,” director Adam Mason said. “It’s ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ but they’re separated by her front door and by the virus.”

Mason wrote the script alongside Simon Boyes.

Fellow cast members include Craig Robinson, Bradley Whitford, Alexandra Daddario, Demi Moore, Peter Stormare and Paul Walter Hauser. Adam Goodman, Invisible Narratives, Catchlight Films and Michael Bay produce the film.
