Full Trailer for Alien Thriller 'Captive State' from Director Rupert Wyatt
"Unless we fight back, we've got a chance." Focus Features has finally released the full-length official trailer for the original sci-fi thriller titled Captive State, the latest from director Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist, Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Set in Chicago, the story takes place nearly a decade after occupation by an extra-terrestrial force. It explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents. This looks killer! Captive State stars Vera Farmiga, Madeline Brewer, John Goodman, Alan Ruck, Kevin J. O'Connor, James Ransone, Jonathan Majors, D.B. Sweeney, Ashton Sanders, Kevin Dunn, Ta'Rhonda Jones, along with Kiki Layne (from If Beale Street Could Talk) and Machine Gun Kelly. I love the way they've been marketing this, revealing more and more with each new trailer. All the big reveals are at the end of this, and while I still don't know what's going on, this looks awesome. Very excited.
Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Rupert Wyatt's Captive State, direct from Focus' YouTube:
No crime. No poverty. No unemployment. The state of our union is strong. Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, Captive State explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents. Captive State is directed by talented English filmmaker Rupert Wyatt, director of the films Subterrain, The Escapist, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and The Gambler previously. The screenplay is written by Erica Beeney & Rupert Wyatt. Focus Features will release Wyatt's Captive State in theaters everywhere starting on March 29th, 2019 next year.

Looks really cool. Looking forward to it.

The subject matter looks great and considering he made the best Apes film (and rightfully passed on the next one because the script was so weak - which it was), I've got high hopes for this.

Nice! Psyched for Wyatt's career.

Not fan of the cinematography ( Coud be a director's choice) but the story seems interesting. Intrigued.

Looks really good! And I like the fact that there are only a handful of known faces and even those are "less"-known currently...

Wow looks really good! It feels like a more complete version of Neill blomkamp's (Oats Studios) "Rakka" short.

... Am SO tired of movies like this -- same old same old -- highly intelligent alien species that appear hideous have more highly advanced tech than us appear take control -- and the film never shows you these aliens and worse they can't communicate directly with Humans -- over it, and some kid has the AI to win uggh

oh hey I didn't realize you'd seen the entire movie already, which of course is the only way you could reach such a conclusion, because only a total moron would make these kinds of claims if they haven't seen it

Don't need to see this one to know what's up... & That's Mister Total Moron to you.

So Half-Life 2: The Movie?

Hmm, color me intrigued.

I'm not sure if anyone making this film really knows what revolution is about, but it looks like they know something about the difference between totalitarian regime and totalitarian system. Which is quite a modern thing and technologically powerful aliens could be a good allegory for it. But of course, it remains to be seen what has been done here ...
