Many of the indie projects actually turn out to be much better than the latest multi-million dollar, over-the-top extravaganza. Just look at how good Snowpiercer was and how dreadful The Predator was.
Hayden Christiansen and Harvey Keitel star in a new sci-fi action thriller called The Last Man and a new trailer has arrived. It’s been some time since we’ve seen either of these actors and neither is a stranger to sci-fi – remember Saturn 3?
The story follows Kurt Matheson (Christensen) “a war veteran with post traumatic stress disorder who perceives that the end of the world is coming. After establishing a relationship with a dubious Messiah (Keitel), he leaves his normal life and begins the construction of a shelter underground, training himself, in an extreme way, at the cost of losing everything and making people believe he is insane. When he also believes it, something extraordinary happens”
The film was directed by first time director Rodrigo H. Vila and the rest of the cast includes Liz Solari, Marco Leonardi, Fernan Miras, Justin Kelly and Rafael Spregelburd.
The trailer also seems to feature the voice of that guy who did almost all the best cause-they-were-cheesy, 80s, straight-to-video trailer voiceovers, so there’s no denying it has a B-movie feel to it…but thankfully, most B-movies these days are far better than they were in the 80s.
The Last Man opens on January 18th, 2019.
