Christopher Webster [Celluloid 05.16.16] post apocalyptic apocalyptic scifi thriller



Here's a new PA flick to get your morning started right, folks. It come from the Academy Award nominated writer of Blue Valentine, Joey Curtis, who also directs the second ice-age actioner called 2307: Winter's Dream.

The trailer below is full of high-concept elements from a virus that destroyed the world, to underground societies and a hunt for a synthetic human. Throw in some great practical locations and interestingly designed props and we're officially intrigued by this one.


Synopsis:
The year is 2307 A.D. The earth is frozen over and virtually uninhabitable. The manmade Chimeric Virus wiped out over 75% of the population. The remaining humans live underground, unable to survive the sub-arctic temperatures. With no “man power,” scientists bio-engineered Humanoids that possess great strength, speed, and tolerance to extreme cold. A rogue humanoid named ASH-393 escapes from captivity and threatens to lead a humanoid rebellion against mankind. Arizona Federation leader, General Trajan, sends an elite team of Spartan 7 soldiers to hunt down and terminate ASH. Decorated veteran humanoid killer, Commander Bishop, will lead the team and face his greatest foe.


The film is being represented at Cannes, so perhaps we'll get word of some domestic distribution soon. It stars Paul Sidhu, Branden Coles, Brad Potts, Anne-Solenne Hatte and Arielle Holmes.

More as it comes, folks!

Thanks for Mr. Christian for the heads up on this one.
