The Sci Fi thriller, which had its world premiere at the 48th Telluride Film Festival in September, will be released on Amazon Prime Video on December 10.

The Oscar nominee recently opened up about how he was once so broke he almost quit acting as he thought he had ‘reached the end of the road’ when he couldn’t afford a plane ticket to an audition in Los Angeles.

Riz revealed that when he was asked to audition for his breakthrough role as Rick in the 2014 movie Nightcrawler, he was so hard up for cash he almost pulled out.

Speaking to The Mirror, he said: ‘They asked me to fly to fly to L.A. I was like, “I can’t fly to L.A. I’m broke”.

‘But I had to fly to L.A. – and just bet on myself. I spent that whole flight just running lines. I remember landing and seeing Jake Gyllenhaal in the room and going, “Whoa”.

The Londoner landed the part in Nightcrawler, starring opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, and said it ‘opened doors’ for him but came at a time when he was ready to quit. 

He said: ‘It came when I thought I’d reached the end of the road. I wasn’t really making any money, being offered that next tier of roles.’
