4:44 Last Day on Earth Trailer

"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.

Watch the first official trailer for Abel Ferrara's 4:44 Last Day on Earth, from YouTube via IMDb:

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?

  • Looks pretty cool. Unfortunately, I am way more interested in the concept than the film. I'd also enjoy a television show about that topic much more than a movie, especially one with a very special main character, like Dafoe's one seems, cannot support a full analysis of the concept. But anyway, looks cool. Will see it.

       The movie looks a lot like the film "Last Night" (1998)

    Seems decent enough, I guess. May need a second trailer to persuade me more.

    While we've been inundated with End of the World films for the last several months(year?), this looks like a pretty good standout. Doesn't look quite as, pardon the play on word, Melodramatic as Melancholia(which I greatly enjoyed). And generally anything with Willem DaFoe in it is a win, in my opinion. I look forward to seeing more of this in the coming couple months. 
  • Remember when Hurricane Katrina happened? It wasn't the end of the world but it was a similar idea. Well during that horrendous part of American history grown men had sex with babies. Imagine if it really was the end of the world? Well it would be worse than that. The worlds been ending since time began, who cares.

    The original Bad Lieutenant was like getting punched in the stomach, will check this out.
  • What the? That looks super depressing. I'm going to bring a bottle of wine into the bathtub and think about all the reasons why I shouldn't see this movie. I'm not saying it doesn't look interesting, but Holy...

    A lot of youtube footage there - hate it when filmmakers do that.

    Anybody know the song(s) used in this trailer? Sounds like there might be two different tunes, but I could be wrong.
  • Johnny Neat
    I'm so fucking there.
  • Johnny Neat
    P.s. Does anyone know what the world will end from?
    • It's Aids I think

      One shot of the sky. I'm assuming a meteor strike. Really, how else can you get an exact time. Is that US Eastern by the way?
  • Blurb
    Looks stupid. Where is the "hysteria" coming from? Shows him standing around and having sex three times. Is that what the end of world is about? Sex?
    • I'm not sure. Personally I haven't experienced it. Anyone? What's the end of the world REALLY like?
  • Gigerbrick
    It's 2012 folks! End of the world as far as the Mayan's were concerned. Course,  their world ended alot sooner than that.... Bummer... Fuck'it they also say, " In the afterlife you don't have to find work!" :)
  • Max Renn
    4:44... And what time zone would that be?
  • Is that Tom Waits in the background?

    "For a few seconds, this place was armageddon... THERE WAS A FIRE FIGHT!"
