Watch Tense Trailer for Sci-Fi Series ‘Mr. Robot’

New USA TV drama concerns a “vigilante hacker” battling “top one percent of the top one percent”

“What if you could set in motion the largest revolution the world will ever see – the single biggest incident of wealth redistribution in history?” That intriguing question, voiced by a mysterious hacker played by Christian Slater, is the central theme of Mr. Robot, a new drama series set to premiere June 24th on USA. 

Rami Malek stars as Elliot, a “cyber-security engineer and vigilante hacker by night” who’s recruited by Slater’s character into that massive hacking plot against the nefarious “Evil Corp,” a monster of modern society.” 

“What I’m about to tell you is top-secret,” Malek narrates to open the clip. “A conspiracy bigger than all of us. There’s a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I’m talking about the guys no one knows about, the guys that are invisible. The top one percent of the top one percent, the guys that play god without permission.”

Armed with Elliot’s tech skills, the hacking group “redistributes” $13 billion from Evil Corp. But the young hacker is forced to live with his eyes constantly peeled, navigating terrain both physical and digital. “Now I think they’re following me,” he whispers in the clip.
