Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.12.10] movie trailer news scifi



A group of young explorers wakes up on an island far from home. The gate through which they’ve travelled seems to have broken and the other teams haven’t arrived. They’re on their own with little technology and no idea where they are or how to get home.

This tale of survival is at the heart of director Ben Carland and The Obsidian Collective’s first full length feature Sol. A character driven story about teens coming together to overcome and survive in an environment that appears to offer nothing more than gorgeous views, the actors have quite a bit to work up to and from the looks of the first teaser, they seem to be holding their own.

Gorgeous music, beautiful visuals and a sense that this is very much a slow-burn, character based sort of sci-fi (I love how the trailer focuses on the people and uses the futuristic elements like the gate and the weaponry rather than focusing on them specifically), Sol has my undivided attention. The film is currently in post production and I can't wait to see a trailer another trailer.

Anon- that was my immediate thought, too. If they -were- inspired by Heinlein's book, and didn't credit him, then phooey.

Can someone say IDAHO TRANSFER? This looks like it was very much inspired by it.
