The Spierig Brothers – those rascally twins responsible for Aussie genre fare Undead and Daybreakers – are set to debut their new film Predestination at the 2014 Melbourne International Film Festival’s Opening Night Gala. But why wait until then when you can, at least, watch the trailer right now?
Starring Ethan Hawke as a “temporal agent” who can travel through time to stop crimes before they’ve even been committed, Predestination is certain to draw comparisons with Minority Report, Looper and 12 Monkeys.
But none of those movies has Sarah Snook, the fantastic Aussie actress who charmed us in the rom-com Not Suitable for Children and seems to embark on a hugely complex role in this new sci-fi thriller.
Underestimate the Spierigs at your own peril. After their surprisingly excellent Daybreakers, we’d still look forward to their latest movie even if its trailer was terrible.
Helpfully, this trailer is awesome.
After debuting at MIFF on July 31, Predestination will arrive in cinemas August 28.
