If someone could find an easy solution to end war, famine, sickness, crime you’re going to accept it? Even if that thing is not human? In Rupert Wyatt’s Captive State, a mysterious Alien Race has erased those worries and strife. But how much could humanity sacrifice, it seems in this one we have surrendered our freedom.
How far you willing to go? Survive in peace or survive under subjugation? In the Third (possibly Final) UK Trailer we find humanity oppressed ten years after the aliens arrived. This new trailer probably the best of the bunch, delivering new footage. It also gives us an even better idea the film’s true plot.
Wyatt seems to be pulling the film into political allegory which is resonant Stateside as much as the UK. Moonlight‘s Ashton Sanders, the film’s hero we see him pulled in many directions. First from John Goodman who seems to friend with the Aliens(The Legislature). The Phoenix who want him too, or will he side the Resistance?
Trailer by trailer this film seems to grow on us, what about you guys?
From the director of Rise of the Planet of the Apes comes a smart sci-fi thriller in the vein of District 9 and Arrival. Set in a Chicago neighbourhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, Captive State explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents. Directed by Rupert Wyatt, and starring John Goodman and Academy Award-nominee Vera Farmiga.
The film stars John Goodman, Vera Farmiga, Ashton Sanders, Machine Gun Kelly, Jonathan Majors, and Colson Baker.
Captive State still doesn’t have a confirmed UK and Irish Release date despite this being the final Trailer. The U.S release date is still March 2019.
