New Captive State trailer warns us of their lies
One of many longest traditions of science fiction is its unbelievable skill to handle social points and ideas with out instantly being in regards to the particular social problems with the day. Captive State could be very clearly a science fiction film on this ilk, as the brand new trailer exhibits with its practically direct references to lots of President Trump’s present claims. In fact, on this case, the lies are coming from an alien race that has taken over the world (or probably simply Chicago) for ten years, with collaborators supporting their propaganda and others preventing within the resistance.
I am barely fearful about how on-the-nose the film appears to be like, although. Director Rupert Wyatt delivered a stable film with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, nevertheless it wasn’t till Matt Reeves took over the franchise that the movies’ social and political tones have been really dealt with splendidly. There is a positive line between making a very good science fiction metaphor that subtly and successfully feedback on modern-day points and mainly yelling that your film has two meanings. From this trailer, it seems like Captive State is extra of the latter. That does not imply it is going to be dangerous, however I am hoping it may be nice.
Captive State lands in theaters on March 29, 2019.
