Prospect trailer: A first glimpse at a chilling sci-fi western
With SXSW due to kick off at the end of the week we should be seeing a host of new trailers landing over the next 7-10 days. The first is the trailer for Prospect, which has expanded on the short film of the same name that first appeared at the festival back in 2014. Check it out to see what you think.
A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They’ve secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon’s toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest’s other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father’s greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.
Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell direct their first feature, with the cast led by Pedro Pascal and Sophie Thatcher playing his daughter. Jay Duplass, Andre Royo, Sheila Vand, and Anwan Glover round out the supporting cast.
Of course, no news on release dates yet but it débuts at SXSW on March 10th.
