CAPTIVE STATE (2019) – Introduces a Totalitarian Regime

CAPTIVE STATE Teaser Trailer

Here comes CAPTIVE STATE – a post alien invasion of earth or controlled by some advanced technologies, where we will be introduced with a totalitarian regime run by some higher power. The teaser/trailer 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.


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 crises 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 the earth from all these issues.

However, the story will certainly have something to explain the actual condition of humanity, whether the earth or humankind is actually better off under the so-called 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 to get elements from films like The Purge, District 9, and Arrival.
