Captive State trailer: What would life be like if the aliens actually won?

By now you would've thought that word had spread beyond our galaxy given the amount of times we've kicked alien ass. Judging by the trailer for Captive State, it seems they were justified in never learning their lesson. At some point we were always going to lose a battle and Rupert Wyatt's film pitches us into a world where we are under the control of an alien life force. There seems to be a touch of The Purge and District 9 about this but the trailer sells it well so far. Check out the trailer for Captive State above to see more.

Set in a Chicago neighbourhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, the film explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents.

Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) writes and directs with the cast starring John Goodman, Ashton Sanders, Jonathan Majors, Colson Baker and Vera Farmiga.

We can experience a Captive State when it opens in the UK on April 12th 2019.
