Higher Power Movie Trailer

"Well, what if I told you I had a plan? It's the only thing powerful enough to stop what's coming." Magnet Releasing has debuted the first official trailer for a very weird, global-scale indie sci-fi film of sorts titled Higher Power, about a gamma ray that gives a human on Earth some crazy impressive superpowers. This is very hard to describe, you just have to dive into the footage. The official description is fairly vague as well, only explaining that "when the Universe decides what it wants, it's pointless to resist." You'll get a sense of this in the trailer. Starring Ron Eldard as Joe Steadman, who reminds me a lot of a young Jeff Daniels in Dumb & Dumber. The cast includes Jade Tailor, Austin Stowell, Jordan Hinson, Colm Feore, Tom Wright, and Laura Margolis. This actually looks pretty cool, and a bit weird. It's worth a watch, for sure.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster art) for Matthew Santoro's Higher Power, in high def on Apple:

When the Universe decides what it wants, it's pointless to resist. With his family's life at stake, Joseph Steadman (Ron Eldard) finds himself the unwilling test subject of a maniacal scientist in a battle that could save the world, or destroy it. Higher Power is directed by filmmaker Matthew Santoro, making his feature directorial debut after working as a visual effects artists for years on movies like X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 300, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. He also edited and did visual effects work on this movie as well. The screenplay is written by Matthew Santoro and Julia Fair. Magnet Releasing will release Santoro's Higher Power in select theaters + on VOD starting May 11th at the start of the summer. Curious?

I didn't understand one damn thing on what was going on. Things blowing up. Planes crashing. Things smashing things. Oh! By the producers of Transformers. Makes sense now.

No, dear tarek, making and producing of Transformers makes no sense whatsoever. At least to me ...

And I am pretty sure the producers of these trash movies don't get why we loath them either. ;D The only disappointing thing is to see Spielberg attached to these brain killer flicks.

Unfortunately, I believe they loath us back and that's all they want to understand from the people that don't support their business of films. They loath people like you, me or Bo. Or anyone with just a bit of sensibility. We both know what answer lies beneath those things. Money. Of course, Spielberg is not immune to that either and that became a fact long time ago ...

Hear hear. Let's not make things easy for them. They will not capture us alive. ;D

It's like Michael Bay's id unleashed upon us.

Gamma Rays - "we need you to get angry" - much rather watch MCU films with the Hulk to be honest. Visuals looked good though.

Who in their right mind would green-light this project after reading the script? Did it even have a script?

I'm not sure if a five year old kid would see anything interesting in this. What's wrong with the people who make this kind of movies?

shiboleth on Mar 17, 2018


Oh Ron're better than this. Cool title though, unfortunately everything else looks like a ripoff of The Incredible Hulk and Ghost in the Machine.

This was made for 500.000 dollars don't know what people expect for 0,2% the budget of a marvel movie. I rate it 7 and 8 for effort. Once the action kicks in this becomes mad as hell really fast. I liked it.
