Mutant Chronicles teaser trailer online
The teaser trailer for Mutant Chronicles starring such names as Ron Perlman, Thomas Jane, John Malkovich, Sean Pertwee, Shauna Macdonald and Devon Aoki is now online, and while the names and the story might suggest a lot, the trailer leaves a lot to be desired.
Sure, it does manage to build story and position characters well, but the effects look like a cheaper Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
The story goes that the world is ruled by corporations, and with the resources of Earth totally depleted, the corporations fight amongst each other for control of what little is left. During a battle an ancient temple is destroyed and a new enemy is released, the necromutants that have blades of bone which grow out from their arms.
A book called the Chronicles details the rise of the mutants and predicts someone called the Deliverer who will travel deep into the mutant tunnels beneath the Earth and destroy them. A priest holds this book and believes that he is the one to save the Earth, and he takes a small team of men with him to carry out the dangerous task. One of these men is Mitch, a Capitol corporation soldier who was the lone survivor of human's first encounter with the creatures.
The effects in the The Mutant Chronicles teaser do remind me of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, which I did think was an enjoyable piece of entertainment, however the effects here look much cheaper and stand out a lot more from the live action.
Is it really going to be good, or are people getting excited over the story and the cast list?
