Kill Switch Movie Trailer

"It's something that could change the world." What IS this movie?! Saban Films has unveiled a full-length trailer for the unique sci-fi feature Kill Switch (not related to the Steven Seagal action film Kill Switch). This is based on a POV concept short film called What's in the Box?, which a visual effects supervisor has turned into a feature film. Dan Stevens stars as a pilot who heads into another dimension (created by an energy experiment gone wrong) to save Earth. Also starring Charity Wakefield and Bérénice Marlohe. I really don't know what's going on, but it does seem very cool. This looks like it's half video game, and half movie combined into one, and I'm not sure it's going to work. But I'm definitely curious anyway. Get ready.

Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Tim Smit's Kill Switch, direct from YouTube (via TMB):

You can also still watch the first teaser trailer for Kill Switch here, for a different look at this sci-fi film.

A pilot (Dan Stevens) battles to save his family and the planet after an experiment for unlimited energy goes wrong. Kill Switch, formerly Redivder, is directed by Tim Smit, a former visual effects supervisor (The Fermi Paradox, Last Passenger, Tiger House) making his feature directorial debut with this film. The screenplay is written by Omid Nooshin and Charlie Kindinger. It's based on Smit's 2009 P.O.V. concept short What's in the Box?. This has not premiered at any film festivals before. Saban Films will release Kill Switch in select theaters starting June 16th this summer. For more info, visit the official website. Anyone?

Although this might be fun, it looks like zombies are not the biggest danger to our survival, huh?

I don't understand why they keep thinking POV movies are a good idea. Maybe a scene or two, but anything more than that is just annoying. And this is coming from an FPS gamer.

I thought Hardcore Henry was a fantastic bolt of fun adrenaline movie making. I'm not a fan of shakey cam at all but POV when done well works for me.

I am not a fan of the concept either but I must admit that HH was a total blast !!

I started watching Hardcore Henry, then my kids came home. All the slo-mo close-ups in the introductory credit sequenced peaked my it's worth finishing?

I think it is. The violence in the opening sequence is certainly an indicator of the violence in the film. On the surface level the film is certainly (IMO) an adrenaline syringe to the heart but when you watch it again there's a surprising amount of other themes in there that I hadn't noticed (probably because I was too busy laughing giddily and clapping my hands at the ridiculously entertaining mayhem happening on screen). The whole film is in FPS but although I can't stand shakey cam, it worked in HH because the 'parameters' of my viewing world were set at the beginning. Hence there was a reason for the screen movement rather than just being the pretentious delusion of the director. Get the kids to bed, whack on your headphones, neck a can of Rockstar Punched (the purple one with guava) and let the roller-coaster begin!

Ha! Will do! And not a fan of energy drinks, but I applaud your recommendation of Rockstar Punched lol.

Watched HH last night....and they seriously pulled it off. Plot was ludicrous but it was fun fodder! Thanks for the rec!

Oh chuffed, so pleased that you enjoyed it. It was ridiculous though an interesting message that the ultimate motivation for the ultimate soldier would be fabricated love. Good on you for giving it a go.

Just wanted to say RIP Powers Boothe.

grimjob on May 15, 2017


Yep, he will be missed

Tester on May 15, 2017


One of my favorites.

Powers Boothe passed on??

CyraNOSE on May 17, 2017


Definitely not inspired by this 2009 short.

Looks like a fun video game... when can we play it. 😀

Why not?

Alex Billington on May 15, 2017


Yep, I'd to give this a go. The last 'small film' with Dan Stevens was The Guest and I thought that was great.

Dan Stevens? Who the heck is Dan Stevens?

It looks boring and cheesy. Said by a hardcore indie sci-fi fan. on Jul 3, 2017
