Must Watch: Awesome Trailer for Viking Sci-Fi Film Outlander
Although we've seen a few trailers for Outlander previously, none of them have looked this good until now. IGN has debuted the latest trailer for Outlander to promote its last-minute January 23rd release. I haven't exactly heard great things about it, but watching this trailer makes me question why it doesn't have more buzz. This looks pretty awesome, even being set in the time of the Vikings. James Caviezel looks like a badass, as always, and both Ron Perlman and John Hurt also look pretty intense. If its playing near you (meaning probably only in New York or Los Angeles) in a few weeks, I'd suggest trying to catch it.
Watch the newest trailer for Outlander:
During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan (James Caviezel), a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry.
Outlander is directed and co-written by Howard McCain, of only The Unspeakable previously. Dirk Blackman also helped write the script with McCain. The film first premiered at the Cannes Film Market back in 2008, where it was picked up by The Weinstein Company, who has a track record of burying good indie gems like this. Outlander will finally hit very limited theaters on January 23rd this year.
