Thelomeris Teaser Trailer

"This is something that everyone wants, something that everyone seeks… forever." Yes, finally, a new indie trailer worth featuring today. It's a steampunk sci-fi indie film called Thelomeris, directed by Hungarian filmmaker Balázs Hatvani, about a man who rules a city stands up against fate and the end of the world. The cast includes some unique names like Mark Hamill, who's also even credited as a script consultant, James Purefoy, DJ Qualls and Lance Henriksen. Thanks to Twitch for the tip on the teaser. They've used some gorgeous CGI in this to make up the world on a low budget and I'm impressed, this looks great. Enjoy!

Watch the official teaser trailer for Balázs Hatvani's Thelomeris, from YouTube:

This is a dark and cold land, where free will is a distant memory and where personal interests rule over real emotions and values. The citizens lived their life in order to serve the energy demand of the fearful colossus, the Clock Factory. Thelomeris is written and directed by Balázs Hatvani (scR.I.Pt), and is the first Hungarian full-length sci-fi film. Almost 80% of it is digitally modified. The movie was made by Trickorn Productions Ltd. in a Hungarian-American co-production. The score is by young composer Robert Gulya. This has been in development since 2008, but not sure on any release info yet. Visit their official Facebook.

    that voiceover was fucking stupid.
  • Thats gotta be Mark Hamill doing the voice over, cos when he laughs at the end, its very reminiscent of the Joker.  Looks interesting though, I'm all for more Steampunk movies!
  • Kevin
    Looks like a really bad late 90s videogame.  
  • first impreesions - reminds me of elements of city of ember , sin city , the spirit that is all
  • CookieMonster
  • The visuals look great. I don't know if it'll be *good* (the voice-over definitely gives me doubts about that), but it has potential. If it's not good, we *need* more filmmakers doing cool, unusual stuff like this.
  • Craig
    It looked cool. Hopefully the script will be able to keep up with the art direction. Mark Hamill's voice is super creepy but it seemed to me like his monologue could have been written better.
  • Neuromancer
    So that's what happened after Return Of The Jedi, Emperor Palpatine is killed and Mark Hamill takes his place.

    looks good

          Dark City meets INK
          • A Tim Burton Dark City, with a bit of Sin City as well. And yes it was like listening to the dark knight trailer with the voiceover being very jokerish which, as mentioned, makes sence given its probably hamill.  The smile at the end even looked jokerish
  • tir na nog
    Not bad,at least its not a remake,or a reboot,or a remake of a reboot,or a reboot of a remake,or a prequel to a sequel,hopefully!!!!!!
  • I like the look of this, will watch it with ma peepers.
  • Leroy
    Did we watch the same trailer?  That trailer was absolutely dull, the voiceover was cheesy and the 'superb CGI' reminded me of Sky Captain or a low budget video game intro.
    • I often don't care too much about the cgi, more the mood set. I can suspend disbelief when watching a movie as it's a fantasy.
      • Japetto
        Every movie is a fantasy to some degree.
        • That's what I'm saying. But it's not a kitchen sink drama, it's a scifi film.
  • Lars
    Ugh. Boring, Dull, and pretentious all rolled up into one.
  • Popeofbalt
    It's not exactly steampunk, either.
  • Coltman15
    I see a little steampunk, and actually I thought of that without seeing it in the title. Otherwise, film noir to the max.

    weak all the way
  • Mojoz2000
    you have horrible fucking taste, Alex.
  • Carson
    looks like an homage to metropolis, possibly a rip-off.  always a fine line there.
