quietearth [Celluloid 04.13.12] United Kingdom apocalyptic scifi horror action thriller



This stunning trailer just came out of nowhere. Courtesy of our friend Grzegorz Jonkajtys, it's made by a bunch of talented friends who collaborated on The 3rd Letter, one of which whose done CGI for Pacific Rim and Battleship. Set in the near future on the verge of environmental collapse, a scientist invents a machine that allows direct contact with God. The Church already knows God's will and unleashes their secret weapon once again. We're waiting on further info, but watch!

From the press release:
"In God We Trust" is a collaboration between childhood friends Alex Gingell, Dan Haigh, Bastiaan Koch, and Alex Westaway. Together they conceived, produced, handled practical FX, directed and appeared in "In God We Trust". In post-production they shared the duties of editing, sound design, musical scoring and creating a host of extensive 2D and 3D visual effects for the piece.


"In God We Trust" serves as a demonstration piece designed to attract the attention of Film Studios and potential investors utilising a "Look what we have created with no resources, imagine what we could do with a reasonable budget" approach.

Synopsis:
"In God We Trust" imagines a near future in which society is on the brink of collapse due to the Earth's deteriorating environment. Multinational corporations and international governments have merged to form a small number of elite corporate power groups, each vying for ultimate power and control over the remaining populace. The story revolves around a momentous discovery made by high-ranking research scientist Piotr Drabik. Employed by a corporate entity known only as "ORTUS", Drabik believes that his research has enabled him to make direct contact with God. Chilling revelations are uncovered as Drabik discovers the true nature of God's will. As rumours spread, shady elements within ORTUS orchestrate Drabi's abduction in an attempt to subvert the end of days and realise their own nefarious ambitions. All the while, the highest echelons of the church are acutely aware of God's true will. Having kept their best defence against armageddon alive for centuries they prepare to fight once again. Caught in the middle of the web, Drabik must find the strength to confront his fears and ultimately decide the fate of us all. The only question which remains is whether humanity’s future involves salvation or annihilation..

For those unaware the films working title was "Human Instrumentality Project". Some may remember that from Neon Genesis Evangalion anime series. If you are a fan of NGE you will immediately pick out some obvious references to the series.

Looks kinda cool though.

I think it's a pure rip off. Lack of imagination, imho.

So they have the cross explosions, the SEELE sound only monoliths and the holy figure crucified in the basement. Yeah, they're being really subtle about where they got the inspiration.
