Here comes CAPTIVE STATE – a possibly post alien invasion earth or controlled by some advanced technologies, where we will be introduced with a totalitarian regime run by some higher power. The teaser shows us earth where there is no poverty, no crime and no unemployment
Even though the teaser trailer does not show us any aliens, we still can expect that the earth is controlled by some alien force. The movie, directed by Rupert Wyatt (The Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Escapist, The Gambler), is slated for a March 29, 2019 release.
Plot Outline – Captive State
Set in a Chicago neighborhood 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.
Written by Erica Beeney (The Battle of Shaker Heights) and Rupert Wyatt, CAPTIVE STATE possibly will make a statement on multiple crisis the world is experiencing these days, including war, famine, crime, disease and disasters. What the film described in the name of “The Legislature” refers to the powerful force who stepped in to save earth from all these issues.
However, the story will certainly have something to explain the actual condition of humanity, whether the earth or the human kind is actually better off under the so-called The Legislature.
CAPTIVE STATE looks interesting as a concept, where we see a future with a glass of fantasy. It would be interesting to see how original the story is, as we kind get elements from films like The Purge, District 9 and Arrival.
CAPTIVE STATE comes to cinemas in March 2019
The film stars John Goodman, Ashton Sanders, Jonathan Majors, Colson Baker and Vera Farmiga.
