Though the sci-fi drama Equals takes place amid a dystopian future where people have lost the ability to feel basic emotions, Kristen Stewart seemingly inspires curious affection from Nicholas Hoult in an exclusive clip (above) from the upcoming film.
The scene sees Stewart seated in what appears to be a cafeteria, gazing down at a bumble bee that has landed on the table in front of her. Hoult, seated opposite her, watches intently as Stewart traps the insect under a glass, musing on its physicality. “According to the laws of aerodynamics, they shouldn’t fly,” she says, the film’s hypnotic score beginning to surge. “But they don’t know it, so they fly anyway.”
