Within the first ten seconds of the Red Billabong trailer we see a shot gun, an army, a giant fucking monster tearing apart a car, a passionate embrace, a character struggling in dark water, a bloodied carcass, more shooting, and a beautiful horse. But it doesn’t stop there…
We’ve been teased an action-packed, heart-pounding, first look for the last week and the Red Billabong team has delivered with today’s release of the brand new trailer which gives us our first look at the film’s mysterious monster.
“I can’t recall a fully realized computer generated character as a ‘lead’ in an Australian film before. I don’t think it’s been attempted.” Says writer/director Luke Sparke. “Our VFX team will be working furiously all the way up to the cinema release. We also used so many practical effects, daring stunts and huge sets. There’s so much in the film that isn’t in the new trailer. There is still so much to reveal when you’re watching it!”
Red Billabong, the first Australian action/horror/thriller film for the year is set to be unleashed on audiences mid-year. Until then, audiences can enjoy the trailer below.
In the Australian Outback, two brothers discover old secrets and family lies. As their friends start to go missing they fear they are being stalked by someone, or something from their worst nightmares – But is it just – A story? A legend? A hoax? Or is it real?
Red Billabong stars Home & Away heart throb Dan Ewing and Dance Academy favourite Tim Pocock. Sophie Don, Jessica Green, Ben Chisholm, John Reynolds, Emily Joy, James Straiton also star along with Felix Williamson (Underbelly: Razor, The Great Gatsby) and Gregory Fryer (The Sapphires).
The Queensland production company, SparkeFilms, has teamed up with distributor Pinnacle Films (Dallas Buyers Club, Predestination, Healing) and international sales agent, Arclight Films, who is handling sales on the project. The production is eyeing a mid-year release, with a broad marketing campaign to kick it off.
