One of my favorite directors in the game right now is the great Richard Griffin. Griffin’s films are nothing short of brilliant and no one can mistake his for another filmmakers. Griffin is able to take many enjoyable qualities of many genres and sub-genres from years past and craft them into films that entertain, as well as, pay tribute to those almost forgotten.
Griffin and his production company, Scorpio Releasing, has been working on a post-apocalyptic action film that is a throwback to those from the 80s like Escape from New York, 1990: The Bronx Warriors, and The New Barbarians. The film, which has an early 2014 release date, can be found on Facebook by going here. You can read below what the page has to say about the film:
In the future Saturn’s moon of Titan houses a prison where Earth’s worst criminals are kept awaiting their return to Earth for trial and execution. One of those criminals, Python Diamond, is being flown back to Earth, escorted by five members of the military police. Upon their return to Earth, they find that a cataclysmic nuclear war has reduced the world to a near-lifeless husk.
Searching for survivors and any clue as to the cause of the destruction leads the six to a warehouse bunker housing scientists who constitute Earth’s last remaining hope for the future. Unfortunately, their landing spacecraft drew the attention of one of the gangs that roam the ruined countryside in search of food and resources, leading them straight to the carefully hidden and well-provisioned shelter. The gang lays siege to the warehouse, fighting their way inside in a bloody battle that takes lives on both sides.
Low on people and ammunition, Python and the remaining survivors wage a guerrilla battle against their attackers amid the twisting confines of the warehouse while, unbeknownst to both sides, a third party enters the fray, leaving carnage in its wake. This dangerous entity finally forces the remaining bandits and the few survivors to band together for mutual survival.
Now enough of my jabbering. You can check out the brand new trailer that was released earlier today below!
