In the trailer for the financial thriller, the actors play cousins who engage in high frequency trading, where millions can be made or lost in milliseconds. They scheme to build a fiber-optic cable straight line between Kansas and New Jersey to give them an edge on their competitors.
But breathing down their necks is their old boss (Salma Hayek), a powerful and manipulative trader who intends to beat them at their own game.
The film comes from writer/director Kim Nguyen and debuted at last fall's Toronto International Film Festival, where it was received warmly.
"The Hummingbird Project" opens in limited release March 15.
