Christopher Webster [Celluloid 06.01.10] post apocalyptic movie trailer news



David Sakurai (Through the Darkness) just handed us the firt trailer for a new Danish (but English language) post-apocalyptic actioner he's starring in called Eastern Army. And honestly, it looks pretty great. Maurauding cannibals, some great costumes, a dusty setting and fantastic photography make this look like a winner.

Eastern Army premiered in Copenhagen, Denmark April 9 at the 'Movie Battle Film Festival' where it recieved "The Audience Award" and a "Best Actor Award" for the lead David Sakurai. Next, the film will tour fests in North America and around Europe.

Synopsis:
In a post-apocalyptic future mankind survives by either killing or hiding. The only hope is that the mythic Eastern Army will one day come and re-build society. A stranger (David Sakurai) arrives at a small settlement to cheat the inhabitants out of food and information by making them believe he is from the army. That ten-year-old Jessica (Mia Dinitzen) believes in him nagues him with guilt.

When a gang of killers and their ruthless leader (Danny Thykær) arrive to kill the inhabitants the stranger has to choose between running away or riscing his life to save Jessicca - and will the Eastern Army rescue them in time?


Eastern Army stars David Sakurai, Danny Thykær, Ole Kristian Thomassen, Benjamin Sitrit, Magnus Bruun Nielsen, Morten Pøhlsgaard, Russel Collins, Maja Muhlack and Mia Dinitzen as ”Jessica”.

The film will be released on dvd in Scandinavia later this year.

Check out the first trailer from the film below and watch for a review in the near future.

you guys are too generous. this looks awful. if the trailer can't hide the bad acting, bad scripting, and bad directing, the movie itself will be really, really bad. sorry, i love post-apocalyptic stuff as much as the next guy, but calling this "awesome" and "the postman done properly" based off this 90-second trailer is just delusional.

Looks awful. Not only does it plagiarize a bad movie, The Postman, it also steals from The Road, with that bit about the adult reminding the children that they had rehearsed suicide before.

And for desperate survivors of an apocalypse, they're wearing fairly decent threads. Hell, I've donated rattier outfits to the Salvation Army.

Also, why do the cannibals--who are, presumably, still human--act like horror movie zombies?

Don't be trashing on the Postman, it could have been better but it wasn't as bad as the media made everyone believe.

This is only a trailer how can tell there is no night scenes?

Def. some spamming on this board. And the Postman was a horrible movie. This looks pretty bad as well.

I agree. The postman wasn't as bad as everyone thought.
And why criticize a post-apocalyptic movie for looking like other post-apocalyptic movies. What should it look like then? Beethoven?
I think this movie looks awesome. I'm definitely going to see this!!!

@ the last anonymous post... if you had read the article above and weren't just spamming, you would have noticed that it's going straight to DVD in Scandinavia later this year.

Welllllllll the jury ain't out. Certain images look well done, but most look like the Midnight Chronicles movie or other fan movies.

Why the hell would spammers stop you from watching a movie?
I'm going to watch this movie no matter what!

If the movie can't stand on it's own merits and needs trolls to boost it's popularity, how good can it be? Answer: Not very. So go see this movie, "no matter what!" Which, in itself, is a very weird thing to say.

Easy there. All I'm saying is that I thought the trailer looked cool, and I'll decide for myself, with or without spammers... or you.

trolls to boost its popularity ? Really now I had no idea the director or producer of the film was paying those trolls $$$ to go aroundbullshit all of us into thinking the movie looks good. Come on there trolls no more no less. Eather itr looks good to you or it does not. I really don't think a trolls comment can sway ones decision in one way or another to see a film now do you ? To me it looks just fine what most PA fimls look like. I will give it a try
