After ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ and ‘2012’, you’d think that director Roland Emmerich would be tired of post-apocalyptic films by now. Well, maybe he got tired of just directing them because he’s producing a new film called ‘Hell’ that fits in with the genre that he has continued to dabble in.
Previously, there was a German trailer for the film making it’s way around the internet, but now, thanks to io9, we have the first English language trailer. You can check it out below after the official synopsis:
From producer, Roland Emmerich comes ‘Hell’, the story of a post-apocalyptic future where the sun has scorched the Earth and left it too bright to inhabit.
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.
Marie, her little sister Leonie and Phillip are heading for the mountains. Rumour has it that water can still be found there but it is a hazardous trip into the unknown. Despite their struggle to overcome the odds, they are lured into an ambush and then the real battle for survival begins…
