"The target is surround, we await further instructions." Black Mandala has revealed a first look trailer for an indie sci-fi creation called The Last Boy on Earth, an anthology film with around eight segments in total to enjoy. There's no final premiere date set yet, but it will be released sometime later in 2023. Here's the only synopsis available so far: In a distant future, an enigmatic boy becomes the central figure in the search for a new hope. Who is this kid? Why is everyone looking for it? Sometimes it is better not to know certain answers… I'm also wondering if this kid is in every segment? The cast includes Camilo Levigne, Raymond Lee, Hugo "Kato" Quiril, Joshua Grothe, Arben Bajraktaraj, John Bubniak, and Sam Hoare. This has plenty of imagery that's lifted directly from Blade Runner (and other sci-fi movies) but it still looks damn good, with impressive VFX and different stories to watch (with monsters, too). I'm curious, I hope it's as thrilling as this trailer promises, and not the usual indie sci-fi junk out these days. Take a look.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Nicolás Onetti's The Last Boy on Earth, direct from YouTube:
