Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.06.08] post apocalyptic movie news scifi dystopic

Russian scifi epic Inhabited Island is finally seeing its theatrical premiere in mother Russia on December 18th and as such is gearing up to release its final bits of European marketing. This new poster almost feels more like teaser art which is probably why I like it so much.

"The year 2157. The blossom times for the human civilization. Pilots of the Freelance Search Group enjoy interstellar travelling. A Russian spacecraft, piloted by a 22 year old Maxim Kammerer, crashes on the distant inhabited Saraksh planet. After long years of a nuclear war, an environmental crisis reigns over the planet, the society is overburdened with social problems, and the established peace is quite shaky. The brave astronaut will explore a mysterious land governed by the Unknown Fathers who are five anonymous rulers manipulating the inhabitants consciousness using special emitters. There Maxim will meet new friends, make enemies, find his love and, after getting through dangerous trials, hunger, mortal hazards and losses, will lead a rebel movement challenging the five greedy rulers."

Just in case you've come late to the party on this one, Inhabited Island is based on a piece of fiction by the famous Strugatsky brothers ("The Roadside Picnic" or Stalker). I'm pretty sure it's currently boasting the highest price tag of any Russian film. You can check out the trailer here.
