Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.03.11] Norway post apocalyptic movie trailer news scifi

History is littered with European comedies set in the apocalypse. It's kind of early, so I can only really think of the fabulous British films The Bed Sitting Room and The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse, but there are a few more.

Now it appears there's a new one coming from Norway called People in the Sun which looks like your typical claustrophbic couples-retreat-gone-wrong mixed with worldwide devestation.

It's Midsummer Eve, and the sun blazes from a cloudless sky. At the camping ground, vacation season has started. Buses arrive to transport the guests to the great Midsummer party some distance from the camping ground. However, two couples decide to stay behind and enjoy the tranquility and they decide to celebrate Midsummer Eve together.

They have not celebrated long before extraordinary natural phenomena surround them. With Mrs. Sørensen's arrival, the peculiar natural phenomena escalate. But the cabin guests continue partying. As nature steps up its attack, and things actually start resembling Doomsday, they discover that little Simon is missing.

All in all a traditional summer comedy, except for the fact that it's the end of the world.

Watch the trailer for People in the Sun after the break.

Thanks to Twitch for the find.
