Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.16.11] Norway post apocalyptic movie trailer news scifi

A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to check out a first teaser for Per-Olav Sørensen’s People in the Sun (Mennesker i solen). A comedy set to the backdrop of the apocalypse, Sørensen’s film focuses on a couples-retreat-gone-wrong.

Here’s the official verbage:

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.

The film is scheduled to debut on Norwegian screens on March 4th and the production has revealed a poster and a pair of what appear to be TV behind the scenes videos which include new footage from the film which, even without subtitles, looks amusing.
