Amazon Prime Video has dropped the first trailer for its Matrix-esque new movie starring Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek.

Titled Bliss, the film is written and directed by Mike Cahill and also stars See actress Nesta Cooper.

Its official synopsis reads: "Bliss is a mind-bending love story following Greg (Owen Wilson) who, after recently being divorced and then fired, meets the mysterious Isabel (Salma Hayek), a woman living on the streets and convinced that the polluted, broken world around them is nothing but a computer simulation.

"Doubtful at first, Greg eventually discovers there may be some truth to Isabel's wild conspiracy."

Ahead of its launch on Amazon Prime Video on February 5, the three-minute trailer follows the pair as they shift between worlds, with Wilson's character Greg confused about which world is the real one.

"It's almost like a trick being played," he says in the promo, which also shows the characters exhibiting seemingly telekinetic abilities.

At one point, they send a whole room of roller-skaters to the ground, while Greg is able to crunch car metal by simply closing his fist.

Bliss will stream from February 5 on Amazon Prime Video.
