Christopher Webster [Celluloid 07.04.11] Germany post apocalyptic movie trailer news video

We've been following this little known German post-apocalyptic film produced by Roland Emmerich for quite a while now. Originally called 2016: The End of Night, the film has gone through some transformations since production began and is now called, simply, HELL.

Looking at this first clip from the film it's clear why the film's title was changed. This is not your typical, glossy Emmerich production. Rather it's a washed out, dusty pallet that eschews monsters for good-old-fashioned man versus man terror. This is truly a hell on earth.

It was once the source of life, light and warmth. But now the sun has turned the entire world into a baked and barren wasteland. Forests are scorched. Animal carcasses line the roads. Even the nights are dazzlingly bright.

Maria, her little sister Leonie and Phillip are heading for the mountains in a car with tinted glass. Rumor has it water can still be found there. It is a hazardous trip to nowhere. Along the way, they run into Tom. He turns out to be a first-rate mechanic and becomes indispensible. But can they trust him? The tension grows. As if things weren’t bad enough, they are lured into an ambush and their real battle for survival begins…

Hell is due our September, 2011.

Check out the film's first clip after the break.

Hell is directed by Tim Fehlbaum and written by Oliver Kahl and Thomas Woebke. It stars Hannah Herzsprung, Lars Eidinger, Stipe Erceg, Angela Winkler, Lisa Vicari, Yoann Blanc and Christoph Gaugler.
