Today I’ve got a real treat to share with you as we have the first official trailer for the Ethan Hawke (‘Gattica’, ‘The Purge’) centered sci-fi film ‘Predestination’ that premiered last spring at SXSW. With the film now on its way to the Fantasia Film Festival, information is finally starting to come out about the movie that we can share with you. As I quite enjoyed Ethan Hawke’s work in lesser known genre films, especially the Spierig brothers film ‘Daybreakers’, I have high hopes for this one. The brothers are the visionaries behind ‘Predestination’ as well, so I think it could be another fun movie to watch. I know that ‘Daybreakers’ met with varied reviews but if you liked it, and I did, there is a chance that this one will catch your interest as well.
At this time, no release date has been announced for the film. However, with the trailer, the following stills already released, and it making the rounds at film festivals I suspect we’ll hear one in the near future. ‘Daybreakers’ took a few subtle shifts on the visuals that really made the world of the vampires stand out and it looks as if they are going to be taking another stylistic approach here in ‘Predestination.’ Speaking of the visuals, here is a good look at what the world we’re given in ‘Predestination’ is going to look like:
Now that looks like an interesting world where we get to see a mixture of futuristic science fiction technology and the 70’s all wrapped up into one great look! However, the stills don’t do the trailer justice which where you’ll get the best feel for the film. You can check it out below!
Clearly this is a piece you’ll either love or hate depending on how you feel about the Spierig’ work. As I enjoy what they do I suspect this one will be a treat for me as well. What do you think about their work? Are you looking forward to ‘Predestination’? Share your thoughts below!
In mid-’70s New York, a man in a fedora slips into an office building’s boiler room, carrying a mysterious briefcase. He uncovers a bomb, and is attacked while struggling to deactivate it. He succeeds — almost. Horribly disfigured, he’s transported to his agency’s headquarters where he receives a new face. He’s a temporal agent, traveling back and forth through time, altering history, and his assignment — thwart the mass murder perpetrated by the so-called “Fizzle Bomber” — continues. New face, new place. Now he’s undercover as a bartender. He falls into conversation with a tough yet androgynous customer. There’s something off about the guy, who offers to enlighten the agent with “the best story you ever heard”…
