Christopher Webster [Film Festival 02.17.10] Switzerland movie news scifi thriller

We've got some good news for scifi fans attending SXSW this year. The festival plans on giving Swiss scifi thriller, CARGO, the royal treamtent for its American premiere.

The film, directed by Ivan Engler and Ralph Etter, will show as part of the festival's "Spotlight Premieres" series on the festival's largest screen, The Paramount Theatre. This is the theatre that premiered MOON last year. As I've seen the film and can attest to its massive scale, I think this was a smart decision by the fest and will make for a perfect screening of the film.

While we don't have the exact date and time of the screening, a source from the fest tells us it will be likely be Wed March 17, or Thur March 18 around
9:30/10pm, so if you're around the festival at that time, be sure to check it out.

Watch for our review of the film around that time too.

It is superb. The trailer doesn't really do it justice. It's a big vision and the story goes places you don't expect... but I'm already saying too much.

Not like Pandorum at all. Very different, though the marketing makes us think it is.
