If The Cloverfield Paradox whet your appetite for high-concept horror sci-fi but left you feeling unsatisfied, Prospect may be just the thing you’ve been craving. The video below evokes the gritty, claustrophobia of Alien with the hard-science of Duncan Jones’ Moon. Give it a spin for some tense outer space thrills!
Official Synopsis: A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They’ve secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon’s toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest’s other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father’s greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.
The film is based on Zeke Earl and Chris Caldwell’s short of the same name which debuted at SXSW in 2014. The trailer delivers some thrills and gives us a unique combo of genres while boasting a talented cast including Transparent star Jay Duplass and newcomer Sophie Thatcher as the father and daughter duo. The cast also includes Pedro Pascal, Andre Royo, Sheila Vand, and Anwan Glover.
