Marina Antunes [Celluloid 10.28.09] movie trailer scifi



Time travel's always a bitch. Even when things appear to be going well something goes sideways: you meet yourself, you mess up the space/time continuum that leads to all sorts of havoc or the physical act of travelling through time eventually kills you. Joey Pruitt's The Tesla Device appears to considers the later option.

Upon graduation, Tommy takes possession of a house which his mother purchased for him prior to her death. While exploring his new home, he uncovers a secret room which holds a mysterious machine and some documents which suggest the contraption may be a time machine. Curious, Tommy puts the machine to the test and though the first trailer for the film doesn't reveal much of what happens when he zaps (presumably) through time, it does suggest that the machine is changing him physiologically. Is he going to turn into the mysterious Faraday? And on that note, does the man who has "come for the device" have any connection (meta or otherwise) to Lost's time travelling physicist Daniel Faraday? Seems too smart to be coincidental.

The film's official website is live at http://www.tesladevice-movie.com/ but it's pretty bare at the moment though there are a slew of great production interviews kicking around on YouTube.

Trailer after the break.

Looks OK, "Primer" still the best time travel movie made.

Agreed, Primer is stellar, but hands down 12 Monkeys is my favorite.

Honorable mention: Donnie Darko

This looks like a step above home-made movie. The FX are nice but the acting is really horrible. Aside from the above-mentioned movies - there's also "Time Crimes" - another great one and I liked "Time after TIme" w/ malcolm mcdowell.

Agreed that "Primer" is awesome but I'm with Agentorange - 12 Monkeys tops my list. Liked "Time Crimes" well enough but found it jumbled and not particularly enjoyable.

lol its not about time travel. You dont know anything about Tesla. I think its about part of Teslas machine to generate free power all over the world, but its not about time travel.
