A Strange Meteor from Outer Space Strikes in 'Risen' Sci-Fi Trailer
"They say if it's out of this world, you will find it." Vertical Entertainment has released an intriguing new trailer for a science fiction thriller titled Risen, the latest film from Australian director Eddie Arya (of The Navigator and The System previously). The film is about a mysterious meteor that crash lands in a small, isolated town in Alaska. Exobiologist Lauren Stone is called to find answers to the unearthly event. As she begins to uncover the truth, imminent danger awakens and it becomes a race against time to save mankind. What's hiding in the rock?! Another mysterious extraterrestrial plot. The film stars Nicole Schalmo, Jack Campbell, Dominic Stone, Caroline McQuade, and Kenneth Trujillo. We've seen this kind of "alien microbes" film before, but I'm always still curious to see what each new film has to offer. Check it out below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Eddie Arya's Risen, direct from Vertical's YouTube:
