"This is going to be fun." RLJ Entertainment has unleashed another new full-length trailer for an under-the-radar sci-fi epic titled The Osiris Child, or rather, The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One in full. You may remember hearing about this, as we posted an international trailer earlier in the year. It's not getting a US release in the fall. Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonization, the story is about a drifter, played by Kellan Lutz, who gets mixed up with a lieutenant named Kane who works for a military contractor. They form an alliance and head out to rescue Kane's daughter amid an impending global crisis. Also stars Daniel MacPherson, Isabel Lucas, Rachel Griffiths, and Teagan Croft. This seems crazy ambitious with impressive VFX for an indie production, I just hope it isn't a complete disaster. Take a look.

You can still watch the first international trailer for The Osiris Child here, to see more footage from this.
Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonisation, Sy (Kellan Lutz), a mysterious drifter, meets Kane (Daniel MacPherson), a lieutenant working for an off-world military contractor, EXOR. The unlikely pair must work together to rescue Kane’s young daughter (Teagan Croft) and reach safety amid an impending global crisis which was brought on by EXOR itself. Teaming up with a pair of renegades (Luke Ford and Isabel Lucas), Kane and Sy clash with EXOR in an attempt to escape while battling the savage creatures that roam the barren planet. Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child is directed by Australian filmmaker Shane Abbess, of the films Infini and Gabriel previously. The screenplay is written by Shane Abbess and Brian Cachia. Surprisingly this is not based on a book or anything else. This film first premiered at Fantastic Fest last year. Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child will play in select US theaters starting October 6th, after first debuting on DirecTV in early September. Who's still interested?
I remember the first trailer. Small little thing to watch at some point. Which means, I don't expect much from this story ...

"I HAVE TO SAVE MY DAUGHTER! HELP ME!!!!" Remember kids, when reasoning with an escaped prisoner, use your family as a convincing argument! 60% of the time, it works EVERY TIME. This looks pretty, but incredibly vapid. What's with the unnecessarily long title too? Science Fiction Volume 1: Osiris Child? Just call it Osiris Child! Was this made in Russia?!?

Hmm, that actually didn't look half bad.

There is one thing missing in the trailer - happy ending scene. Other than that, no need to see the movie now. Seriously WHO THE F MAKES THOSE TRAILERS? There is like 70% extra, not-needed content that ruins it and makes me think the movie is utter garbage. There is a simple rule when compiling a trailer: Come up with a 2 line story description, that does not reveal anything (like one you'd put on IMDB), then make a trailer that sticks to it! Nothing less, nothing more. This trailer basically is a skip-through story from A to Y, where Z is happy ending. Just garbage cut-work.

Worth a look. Reminded me in parts, of Oblivion. However, Oblivion succeeded by not overplaying it's hand, and still focusing well on character. It's visual scope was epic, yet artfully contained - really just one amazing ship, a beautiful base, plus a few outlaws and drones. The human story was complimented by the effects. The Osiris Child looks (from this trailer) like a bigger exercise in "CGI world building". Which might come off a little unconvincing on a slim budget. I'd rather have less effects, and a more artfully directed, gritty, and realistic sci-fi story with strong characters. But we'll see. Also, "Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child" ...sheesh. Got to be one of the most annoying colon-titles in film history. Simultaneously pretentious and lame. Who calls their film "Science Fiction Volume One" as if suggesting it will redefine the genre?
