Paramount Pictures and director Roland Emmerich (2012, Independence Day) have teamed up to produce a German post-apocalyptic thriller called "Hell." And today we have a domestic trailer for the film. Check it out below.
In "Hell," a blazing sun has made the earth an uninhabitable wasteland. A group of friends take to the mountains in an attempt to find water and food only to find themselves locked in a struggle for survival.
The movie is written and directed by newcomer Tim Fehlbaum. It already hit German theaters on September 22nd, and will now be released in the US on VOD on July 10th and DVD on August 21st. The word "Hell" is a German word for "Bright," but in the US, the new movie will still be called "Hell."
The executive producer of 2012? Executive Producer? What the rich guy who usually just puts a bit of money in to the film and has absolutely no impact on the creative outcome? Saying that it's probably a good thing considering 2012 was one of the worst films I've ever seen. These name drops do the film nothing but bad most of the time. Or did he "executively" produce this film too and demanded recognition in the trailer?
I also think they forgot to credit JJ Abrahams camera man on this one, solar flare the movie. [I have no idea what went on in this trailer]
So instead of digging down into the ground where water is far more likely sequestered (hint: Mars, artesian wells), they travel to the top of a mountain where not only is it far more likely a place to have already lost all its water (hint: global warming melting of mountain ice sheets) but to possess thinner air, thus increasing respiratory problems in conjunction with dehydration.
Roland is still a better scientist than he is a director, though...
