Watch: Official Trailer for '4:44 Last Day on Earth' with Willem Dafoe
"At 4:44AM tomorrow morning, there will be no survivors. The world will end." IFC Films has debuted an official trailer on IMDb (found via TheMovieBox) for Abel Ferrara's 4:44 Last Day on Earth, essentially Ferrara's crazy Southern take on the last days before the end of the world. Willem Dafoe stars with Paz de la Huerta as two of the characters in this near-apocalyptic film described literally as "a look at what would happen if everyone knew the world was ending." I'm not really sure I'm into this take on that histeria, but I do love savage Dafoe and I do want to see what craziness it tries to address. Give this a shot anyway.
A look at what would happen if everyone knew the world was ending. The ensemble cast includes Dafoe, Paz de la Huerta, Natasha Lyonne, Shanyn Leigh, Paul Hipp, Thomas Michael Sullivan and Anthony Perullo.
4:44 Last Day on Earth is both written and directed by Bronx-born auteur Abel Ferrara, of numeorus films including Fear City, Cat Chaser, King of New York, Bad Lieutenant, Body Snatchers, Dangerous Game, The Blackout, Chelsea on the Rocks and Mulberry St. most recently. It was made independently and premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year. IFC Films is distributing, and has 4:44 Last Day on Earth set for a limited release on March 23rd, well before the supposed apocalypse is supposed to hit. Thoughts?
