Future World Packs a Post-apocalyptic Knock-out Blow this May 25th: First Trailer

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
This film fan admits to enjoying post apocalyptic fare. It was films like Albert Puyn's Cyborg (1989) and Night of the Comet (1984) that shaped the film landscape, a millenia ago. Director James Franco looks equally inspired by films of the '80s, including George Miller's The Road Warrior (1981). His latest picture, co-directed by Bruce Thierry Cheung (The Color of Time, 2012), creates a harsh landscape. In Future World, a young man looks for a cure, to stave off his mother's death. What he is not prepared for is a world filled with cyborgs, wasters and motorcycle riding bandits. The film hosts a number of recognizable names, in the film's first trailer.

Viewers may recognize a few actors. Franco not only directs, but stars as some sort of junk dealer. Other bandits roam the wastes as Tattooed Face (Method Man) and Love Lord (Snoop Dogg). Even actress Lucy Liu makes a late appearance as the Queen. But, the film focuses more on Suki Waterhouse's character Ash. Mostly machine, Ash may have the cure, that everyone is looking for.

Future World will release theatrically later this year. Lionsgate will show the film in theatres, this May 25th. Fans of post-apocalyptic thrillers can find out more on the film as Future World reaches its final destination, in the barren wasteland!
