With Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq set to debut on the site later this week, Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures have released a brand new full-length trailer for their latest production: Creative Control. Originally premiered at SXSW last year to critical acclaim, the darkly funny satire takes on the realm of present-day tech culture and revolves around the fictional Augmenta: a set of “life-changing” augmented reality glasses.

Directed by Benjamin Dickinson, Creative Control will hit theaters March 11.
