First Full Trailer for Alien Invasion Thriller 'Revolt' Featuring Lee Pace
"Must have some weakness, something we can use against them." A full-length trailer has been unveiled for an indie sci-fi project titled Revolt, from director Joe Miale making his feature debut. The film stars Lee Pace as a US soldier in Africa attempting to fight back against a brutal alien invasion. This kind of seems a bit like a mash-up between District 9 and Transformers, with robot-like alien creatures taking over. Also with Bérénice Marlohe (who was also in the sci-fi Kill Switch, as well as Skyfall and Song to Song), plus Amy Louise Wilson, Alan Santini, and Tom Fairfoot. This has some solid VFX work and it seems like it could be a fun under-the-radar sci-fi film, I just hope it's better than it looks. This trailer is worth a watch.
The story of humankind's last stand against a cataclysmic alien invasion. Set in the war-ravaged African countryside, a U.S. soldier and a French foreign aid worker team up to survive the alien onslaught. Their bond will be tested as they search for refuge across a crumbling world. Revolt is directed by American filmmaker Joe Miale, a former editor making his feature directorial debut after a number of short films previously, including Assassin's Creed: Checkmate and Half-Life: Raise the Bar. The screenplay is written by Joe Miale and Rowan Athale. This project has been in development for years. There is no US release date set yet, but it's expected to open sometime later in 2017. Stay tuned for news. First impression of footage?

Didn't the Poser software have mech designs a bit like that back in 2007? Or are they made of scrap metal?

Bad aliens. If you can't have them sexier, you can definitely can have them more sinister for no good reason ...

An Alien is a Stranger thing.

Yeah, I know, it's very far from a beautiful strangers. Whatever is alien about them must be sinister, right? These encounters obviously don't work very often differently in this world...

Looks like a cheap version of war of the world's...

Lee Pace! Couldn't place him for a second. But his voice gave it away, he's from guardians of the galaxy! Weird seeing him with no makeup.

Yikes, those aliens look lame.

"District 9 and Transformers"....How about Battle Los Angeles, Skyline, Independence Day? Heck I even saw a scene from Cowboys and Aliens, Edge of Tomorrow, etc in the trailer.....An amalgam of all those movies and more. There is nothing new to this, although we have to give it a chance to see if it is entertaining. On the other hand, if aliens were to wipe-out the human race, and that means being super-high tech enough to get here, we wouldn't see it coming, we be all dead before we know it. But that wouldn't be movie material at all.

Thoroughly enjoyable. A down and dirty 90 mins mixing it with not only the aliens but with some pretty nasty human renegades as well . What it lacks perhaps in originality it makes up for in some smart direction and neat camera work. Well worth a ticket.
