A US trailer for Seth Larney’s new Australian sci-fi 2067 dropped today.
The year 2067: Earth is on the verge of collapse. After years of doing too little to reverse climate change, plant life is extinct and there is a dramatic reduction in available oxygen. With no cure in sight, humanity builds a quantum time machine that pings the future in search of a connection with a possible solution founded by our descendants. They receive a response: a message from 400 years in the future that simply reads “Send Ethan Whyte”. Unwittingly, Ethan, a reclusive utility worker, barrels into the future as the only hope for his species, and his sick wife. He arrives in a new world, completely alone, and begins to uncover an unthinkable conspiracy.
2067 was shot in Adelaide and is directed by Larney who has worked in visual effects on films iincluding The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions (2003), Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005), Superman Returns (2006), and X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). His directing credits include award-winning short films, music videos, tvcs, and the Foxtel series Hipsters (2015). His debut feature as a director was Tombiruo (2017).
