Do you like your sci-fi films to be all about the end of the world? Lack of water? Some rather uptight individuals, people getting hurt and a great cast that includes the always brilliant Michael Shannon? You do? Well then, check out the trailer, poster and images for Young Ones below.
Although no release dates have been set, the film has been picked up for UK distribution by Signature.
Young Ones is written and directed by Jake Paltrow, and the cast includes Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Aimee Mullins.
When Ernest and his son, Jerome, use the last of their family’s savings to purchase a robotic mule to deliver food rations to a work crew drilling water wells in the mountains above their home, they never thought it would alter the course of their futures so completely.
Enter Flem with his designs on Ernest’s daughter, Mary, and his hope to take back their land, which his father had once owned in the heyday of early 21st Century industrial farming. When Flem’s desires are actualized through his brilliantly managed lies and careful manipulations, a series of events are set into action that will alter their young lives forever, and Jerome will be forced to make choices that no child should ever have to make.
