Must Watch: First Trailer for Indie Sci-Fi Space Epic 'The Last Scout'
The year 2065 - war has destroyed Earth, mankind has been forced to leave. This is a must watch trailer for an indie sci-fi that seems to be going for something similar in scope to Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, except made on a shoestring budget. The Last Scout is a sci-fi space opera epic from filmmaker Simon Phillips that we first teased last year with a dark poster. Over a year has passed and we haven't heard or seen anything about this, but out of nowhere a teaser trailer has appeared, and the filmmakers are asking for Indiegogo funds to finish VFX and other post-production work. This trailer actually looks good, despite ending on that obnoxious explosion, but I'm still interested in checking this out. As long as it gets finished.
Here's the first official teaser trailer for Simon Phillips' The Last Scout, direct from Vimeo:
The official synopsis from HeyUGuys: The film is a futuristic story of a crew of astronauts searching for a new home for humanity after Earth has been devastated by a nuclear war between the East and the West. The ensemble cast includes Rita Ramnani, Peter Woodward, Simon Phillips, Rebecca Ferdinando, Deji LaRay, Paul Thomas Arnold, Petra Bryant & Blaine Gray. The Last Scout is directed by British actor-turned-filmmaker Simon Phillips (of the film G.B.H. or Riot) from a screenplay by Paul Tanter (White Collar Hooligan trilogy, Jack Falls). As of this moment, the movie does not have an official release date as it is looking for additional funding to finish post-production work - help them on Indiegogo here.
