New Trailer for Post-Apocalyptic Horror 'Hostile' from Mathieu Turi
"Every mistake you make, you make it for a reason." 4Digital Media has released a new trailer for a post-apocalyptic survival horror film titled Hostile, from French filmmaker Mathieu Turi making his directorial debut. We posted a slick teaser trailer for this last fall, and finally have another new trailer to promote its upcoming US release in September this year. Not to be confused with the Christian Bale western Hostiles, this film is about a woman, played by Brittany Ashworth, who is a survivor of an apocalypse and ends up crashing her truck while driving around. She wakes up at night, and must battle strange creatures that roam the wastelands in the dark. The cast includes Grégory Fitoussi, Javier Botet, Jay Benedict, and David Gasman. This still reminds me a bit of I Am Legend, but this trailer makes it seem somewhat more unique.
Here's the new official trailer (+ poster) for Mathieu Turi's Hostile, direct from YouTube:
A worldwide epidemic has killed most of the planet's population. The few survivors struggle to find food and shelter in the deserted wastelands leftover. But they are not alone. On her way back from a scavenging mission, Juliette (Brittany Ashworth) has a terrible accident. Stuck in her car, with a broken leg, in the middle of an unforgiving desert, she must survive the perils of the post-apocalypse, while a strange creature prowls around. Hostile is both written and directed by French filmmaker Mathieu Turi, a former crowd assistant director making his feature directorial debut after a few short films previously. This first premiered at the Neuchâtel Fantastic Film Festival in Switzerland, and has played at a few other film festivals last year including at the Sitges Film Festival & FilmQuest Festival. 4Digital Media will release Turi's Hostile in select theaters + on VOD starting September 4th in the fall. Who still wants to see this?

So, it's post-apocalyptic (again)...and that "Resident Evil" blurb is supposed to make me want to see it?

Well, idea of apocalypse is with us for some time. There's a saying that says 'nothing will change after the end of the world'. It looks like authors of this story mostly rely more on aesthetics and not on thinking through mentioned sentence, like this one, when telling those stories. But unfortunately, I'm always somehow drawn to these kind of narratives. In their overly dystopian manner, they challenge me, as anyone else, to think exactly the opposite, the utopia. Nothing wrong with that. At least for me. Of course, only if the story and the film are done good. And this one looks watchable in that respect...

I'm SO sick of the "everything happens for a reason" trope! As soon as the "every mistake you make, you make it for a reason" came up I immediately was taken out of the trailer. How does that even make sense?!? Last time I checked mistakes aren't generally made on purpose or using reason! Lazy and uninspired with borrowing ideas of better films preceding it.
