Captive State Trailer

Lines Are Drawn in New “Captive State” Trailer

Rupert Wyatt is returning to the big screen for the first time in over five years with the sci-fi thriller Captive State.

The film’s new trailer gives a mere glimpse into the fast-paced story, leaving us with more questions than answers as we get a pleasurable tease as to the chaos and mayhem that lies behind enemy lines a decade after an extra-terrestrial force occupies the planet.

Set in Chicago, Captive State focuses on both sides of the conflict.  Though the trailer doesn’t offer much in regard to plot detail, we do get to see some memorable interactions between collaborator John Goodman and dissident Ashton Sanders.  But then again - there is often more than meets the eye with these things.

The film co-stars Jonathan Majors, Colson Baker, and Vera Farmiga and is one of our most anticipated original story films of 2019.  Here’s to hoping for a SXSW premiere before its March 29 theatrical release.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
