Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.25.09] post apocalyptic movie trailer news



In somewhat of an odd turn, Dead Noon director Andrew Wiest has decided to turn away from Grindhouse films about gun slingers and bring us a post-apocalyptic Christian parable in the form of a low budget family outing called The Wylds. Now, I'm like the farthest thing from a religious scholar type so I'll let those of you who are decide how faithful the film looks next to John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" (which I imagine is not a lot). For everyone else, there's sword fighting, cowboys, and evil mustache twirling types wearing steam-punk goggles in the film's teaser so I thought I'd post it up for a larf.

Someplace, somewhere, in the future mankind fell. A Great War turned Earth into a wilderness and a wasteland. Cars, electricity, computers, all modern technology is long gone and forgotten about. There are pockets of civilization living in decaying and ramshackle cities, but the long and endless roads between these places are filled with bandits, swindlers, and things that go bump in the night. Living in the ruins of one of these cities is Chris, a runaway child. With no hope that his family will take him back, he lives with a group of misfits in a junkyard, stealing to survive. When a traveling preacher tells him that his father is alive and wants him to come home, Chris must decide whether to stay with his new family of thieves or venture into the wilderness in search of his dad and a better life. Join Chris on the journey of a lifetime, as he meets strange drifters, discovers a city full of every kid's desires, travels through awe-inspiring mountains and raging rivers, and battles creatures of the night.

You can check out more on the project on it's official web page but I certainly wouldn't expect a wide release. Very odd teaser after the break.

This movie looks good and entertaining not to mention clean and wholesome which is hard to find these days. I think I want to see it and share it with my family.So what if it's low budget? There have been some high-budget films that didn't come up to par either so...?
