Predestination Trailer


'The Bartender' (Ethan Hawke) is the nickname given to a Temporal Agent whose job it is to stop crime before it occurs through the use of time travel. His aim is to make sure the law is enforced and people are protected throughout time, but it seems he has finally met his match when one seriously intelligent criminal manages to repeatedly slip through his clutches and cause devastating bomb explosions that have wiped out thousands. It's not an easy life, jumping in and out of a timeline as a career, but work is getting on top of The Bartender and he's about to discover just how exhausting time travel really can be, for both him and his nervous recruits.

Ethan Hawke is to star as a time-travelling crime fighter in 'Predestination'.

The 'Dead Poets Society' actor will portray a government agent who is sent out on a number of time-travel missions in order to stop future Killers, and the action-thriller movie will see him reunite with director brothers Michael and Peter Spierig for the first time since 2009 sci-fi horror 'Daybreakers'.

The Spierig brothers - who have penned the screenplay for the motion picture - are quoted by Variety as saying: '''Predestination' is based on the classic Robert A. Heinlein short story 'All you Zombies'. No, it's not a zombie flick but it's one of our favorite short stories and is unlike anything you've ever read before.

Undead Review


Weak
Undead, a low-low budget zombie-sci-fi-splatter-comedy from Australia is the epitome of ambitious filmmaking gone horribly awry. This is a "kitchen-sink" film (that is, everything but) that outdoes Peter Jackson's equally absurd Bad Taste within the first 20 minutes. It's overflowing with outrageous effects, stilted acting, day-glo lighting, insidiously painful music and a needlessly complicated plot. While most low-budget horror flicks peter out in the last few reels, this film's co-directors, the Spierig brothers, push the film into zanier and zanier quarters until (at one striking moment) it eclipses it's own budgetary limitations and astounds. The moment, sadly, is singular and fleeting. What remains is a gloriously mad heap of celluloid inanity.

The small town of Beverly seems a peaceful place, but when a freak asteroid storm creates a rampaging army of flesh-munching zombies it's up to a motley assortment of flat characters to save the day. As is frequently the case in films like this it is the outsiders, the pariahs, who become the heroes. The heroes here are Rene (Felicity Mason), a depressed beauty queen, and Marion (the more than appropriately named Mungo McKay), a fisherman/gun shop owner with an alien abductee history. Rene and Marion navigate two cops and a pregnant couple towards the final arc of the rambling story when the film switches gears and becomes an outrageous sci-fi spectacle.
