It’s reminiscent of ‘District 9′ in that the protagonist is running from these corporate or government operatives who are hunting him down. As time progresses, we see that underneath that hood he has turned into a robot… Or is a robot. This is where the ‘Iron Man’ part comes in. He’s pretty damned tough now thanks to his robotic exterior. Looks wise? Welp, that’s where that ’9′ surrogate comes in.
It looks interesting. I mean, I like steampunk so I am intrigued. The problem I have is that there is something missing. Maybe you could tell me? Check it out:
THE PROTOTYPE – TEASER V.3 from Andrew Will on Vimeo.
The first teaser trailer has been leaked online, by its writer/director Andrew Will, with Deadline reporting that it was initially to be sold after the 4th July holiday in the States.
This first look at the film is utterly immense, and you can definitely imagine that distributors will be wanting this in their armoury for release in 2013.
The film has an under $40m. budget, and if it gets the right release, you can imagine that the success District 9 found could well follow for it.
Will, who’s worked as a production assistant on Star Trek and the Nic Cage-starrer Next, has been flying a little bit under the radar with it, and it isn’t even listed on IMDb yet.
Joseph Mawle (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger), and Anna Anissimova (The Whistleblower) all star. It looks like McDonough will be just left of centre here, which sounds excellent to me; we don’t get to see enough of him on the big screen.
Meh… Maybe another teaser will be helpful? What do you think?
