So I made a little fun of the costumes in Sandy Collora’s new flick Hunter Prey even though I think it’s an interesting concept that could definitely pay off with a bad ass film. Despite the main characters looking like Iron Man had sex with The Rocketeer, the new teaser trailer has earnestly built up some interest.
Of course, are friends over at io9 have got the exclusive on the teaser trailer – so you’ll need to head over there to check it out, but it’s worth a few mouse clicks.
The teaser is more atmosphere than action, but it’s still very cool in keeping with the 1970s feel of the entire flick. There’s a fantastic shot of the spaceship coming apart in orbit, and an even better shot of the crew walking along the dunes with a few planets hanging in the mid-day sky (see above). Beautiful – especially considering that this whole thing was done on a small budget, completely independently.
An escaped, deadly prisoner and a crew of space cadets marooned on a desert planet trying to bring him/her/it back. Plenty of room for some ass-kicking action and weird sci-fi angles. Sign me the hell up.
What do you think?
