New The Mutant Chronicles trailer online
There's a new trailer for The Mutant Chronicles online. That's funny I thought when I saw it, because wasn't it released at the end of last year, some time around October? Well it was, but not to the U.S.
So in a nice turnaround for a change, America is waiting to see a film we in various other parts of the world have already seen, and had a chance to buy on DVD for months.
The U.S. release date is the 24th of April 2009 in cinemas, and that's been one long wait. Now you can all see a new trailer for the film that I can't help but think if we'd all seen it might have received a few other audience members.
The trailer is over at Apple [iPod:S:M:L:480p:720p:1080p] through Coming Soon and looks rather good, and I'm left wondering how this slipped through the cracks of last year so easily – mind you, I was rather preoccupied with more pressing matters in life at that time, so maybe it was just me.
The Mutant Chronicles tells the story of an Earth ravaged by war and drained almost dry by man. Four Corporations rule the planet and do battle for the remaining resources. During one of these battles an ancient machine is restarted, a machine that came from space and turned humans into mutants. Before long the creatures are running rampant and humanity is under seige.
A group of humans escape while the rest remain, and a small band of soldiers and believers are picked to head towards the machine and destroy it forever.
