Egyptian-American actor Rami Malek is starring in a new movie and his character is as dark as his alter ego (anti-social computer geek Elliott) in Mr. Robot

The upcoming thriller is titled "Buster’s Mal Heart" and it really is a psychological puzzle. 

We watched the first five minutes of the film (and the trailer) and were left with so many questions, gasps and a whole lotta suspense. 

Here, watch it:

Did it leave you confused too? Here's a synopsis of what the film is actually about.

"Rami Malek plays a character named Buster who was once Jonah, a hard-working husband and father. Jonah’s job as the night-shift concierge at a hotel took its toll on his psyche and, consequently, his marriage to the sensitive Marty (Kate Lyn Sheil) — until a chance encounter with a conspiracy-obsessed drifter (DJ Qualls) changed the course of their lives forever.

As the solitary present-day Buster drifts from house to house, eluding the local sheriff at every turn, we gradually piece together the events that fractured his life and left him alone on top of a snowy mountain or perhaps in a small rowboat in the middle of a vast ocean — or both."

Notice the beard? We know, right? This is Rami like we've never seen him before and we think we like it. It gives him an edge that maybe even "Elliott" doesn't have.

The movie, directed by Sarah Adina Smith, will first screen at the Tribeca Film Festival, before being "released theatrically in New York, April 28, and in Los Angeles and other markets, May 5," according to
