Friday 13th will always be a superstitious day for the wrongs reasons. In How It Ends, Theo James and Forest Whitaker the pair head into the Apocalypse.
Today Netflix has launched the official Trailer for their upcoming Netflix Originals Film. A film which sees a man Wills (James)who seems to be at loggerheads with his father-in-law Tom (Whitaker). He’s on a trip and seems to be in the bad books with Tom and whilst on the phone to his pregnant wife, Samantha (Kat Graham), the connection cuts.
With no reason on why connection fails Wills fears something bad is happening, he contacts Samantha’s father. The pair reluctantly joins together on a road trip to find the scared Samantha 2000 miles away.
I do enjoy a good apocalyptic film and this one has promise. Keeping it a mystery behind exactly what apocalyptic origins are works well here. Reminds us a little bit like The Road if it was a buddy road film, curious to see how they’ll try to differ this one. The synopsis (see below) seems to tease the possibility the ‘apocalypse’ may not be natural or even from this planet. Could it be a government thing with the ‘misinformation’?
The film is directed by David M. Rosenthal (A Single Shot) and seems to be connected to recently completed Jacob’s Ladder remake. This film is based on a script by Brooks McLaren, who has just happened to be the new writer for Rambo 5 to star Sly Stallone.
As a mysterious apocalypse causes the spread of misinformation and violence, a man and his estranged father-in-law race across a chaotic and fractured country to save his pregnant wife.
The film will star Kat Graham, Kerry Bishé, Mark O’Brien, Nicole Ari Parker, Grace Dove.
How It Ends will arrive globally (including the UK and Ireland) on Netflix on Friday 13th July.
