Second Trailer for Jake Paltrow's Dusty, Impressive Sci-Fi 'Young Ones'
"I never saw this land when it was green, before the drought came." Following some short teases from France and a very brief domestic trailer, we finally get a much better look at the ambitious sci-fi western Young Ones. Director Jake Paltrow has created an intimate sci-fi world that also has a subtly wide scope for what lies beyond our characters who are plagued by a seemingly endless drought. Michael Shannon attempts to keep his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and daughter (Elle Fanning) safe and grounded as the society around them, including the untrustworthy Nicholas Hoult, is getting more desperate all the time.
Here's the full theatrical trailer for Jake Paltrow's Young Ones, originally from Apple:
Young Ones is written and directed by Jake Paltrow. Set in a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, the land has withered into something wretched. The dust has settled on a lonely, barren planet. The hardened survivors of the loss of Earth's precious resources scrape and struggle. Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) lives on this harsh frontier with his children, Jerome (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Mary (Dakota Fanning). He defends his farm from bandits, works the supply routes, and hopes to rejuvenate the soil. But Mary's boyfriend, Flem (Nicholas Hoult), has grander designs. The film premiered at Sundance 2014 and Screen Media Films will release it in the US on October 17th.
