Infographic from Hell
Roland Emmerich (2012, The Day After Tomorrow), a director not known for subtlety or particularly superb storytelling but instead for functional plot devices that lead characters to increasingly impressive CGI, has set his sights on producing upcoming German post-apocalyptic epic Hell.
Set in a “post-apocalyptic future where the sun has scorched the Earth and left it too bright to inhabit”, the film stars a cast of unknowns looking for the last drops of water on the planet.
It was once the source of life, light and warmth but now the sun has turned the entire world into a baked and barren wasteland. Forests are scorched. Animal carcasses line the roads. Even the nights are dazzlingly bright. Marie, her little sister Leonie and Phillip are heading for the mountains. Rumour has it that water can still be found there but it is a hazardous trip into the unknown. Despite their struggle to overcome the odds, they are lured into an ambush and then the real battle for survival begins…
While the story may seem familiar, the trailer adds plenty of visual flair to suggest that perhaps it might be a surprise.
Not to be outdone in marketing despite its shoestring budget, the team have commissioned a rather cool-looking infographic for the movie, which you can see in full size by clicking the image below:
The film, Hell, is already out on DVD and Blu-ray and might be worth an add to your collection if you’re a fan of the genre – let us know what you think!
