Some brief international teaser trailers just surfaced for the intriguing sci-fi flick Young Ones, which debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, and now a short teaser trailer for the film's release in the United States has arrived, showcasing more of the cool desert landscape that director Jake Paltrow has created. The post apocalyptic film has flares of Steven Spielberg with hints of Mad Max, and a sweeping, grand score, complete with a truly incredible cast that features Michael Shannon, Dakota Fanning, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Nicholas Hoult. This is what indie sci-fi strives to be, and it's very cool. Watch!
Here's the new US trailer for Jake Paltrow's Young Ones, originally debuted by Vulture:
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.
