Check These Out: Awesome Stills from Tribes of October!
No more than three days ago I ran a casting announcement for Philippe Martinez's Tribes of October. Ray Stevenson, Jaime King, Stephen Moyer, Robert Duvall and James Caan had all joined the cast of what was being called a post-apocalyptic thriller on a $25 million budget. It was also mentioned that they were shooting it using almost entirely green screen (think Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow) and that a demo reel they had whipped up would be shown at Cannes. Well thankfully some shots of that demo reel have popped up and they kick some serious ass. I was expecting this to look cool, but not this frickin cool!
I really love the orange tinge to these - it makes the visual style so distinct. And it's not ripping off anything, because as far as I know,t hat color hasn't been used excessively like this anytime before. Love these!
Obviously these aren't finished, as some of them have been painted in addition to all the stylized CGI. But I will say this looks gorgeous and I can't wait to see more from it or even see all the footage in action!
All of the six photos above come from the sales company's website: cinepropictures.com. Tribes of October is set in a future in which New York has become surrounded by an endless desert plagued by heat storms, and the city's technology has decayed so much that nothing made after 1960 works. In this environment, a detective (Ray Stevenson) is on the hunt for a Mafia don (James Caan) who is going after the remnants of the NYPD, led by Robert Duvall. Stevenson's detective character is simultaneously searching for the love of his life (Jaime King). Stephen Moyer plays another cynical and street smart detective. Any thoughts?
