First Teaser for Indie Exploration Sci-Fi Film 'Prospect' Playing at SXSW
"Some of us have the proclivity for greatness, while others do not." Another new teaser trailer for a SXSW Film Festival premiere. The first teaser has landed for Prospect, a sci-fi feature that is based on the short film of the same name that we featured on this site back in 2014. From directors Chris Caldwell & Zeek Earl, the film is about a teenage girl and her father who travel to a remote moon on the hunt for elusive riches. They discover others hiding in the moon's toxic forest and their visit quickly devolves into a desperate fight to escape. Jay Duplass and Sophie Thatcher star, with a cast including Pedro Pascal, Andre Royo, Sheila Vand, and Anwan Glover. So, this honestly looks even way better than I expected, with some truly exciting footage. Another film that should definitely be on your SXSW line-up. Can't wait to see it myself.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Chris Caldwell & Zeek Earl's Prospect, direct from YouTube:
Description from SXSW: A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They've secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon's toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest's other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father's greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape. Prospect is co-directed by filmmakers Chris Caldwell and Zeek Earl, both making their feature directorial debut after a few other shorts. This is a feature adaptation of their short, firs released in 2014. The film is premiering at the SXSW Film Festival this month. Visit the official website for more info. First impression?
