I havent heard much about 'The Mutant Cronicles' film for awhile, but today a poster popped up online for it and it looks pretty cool. The Movie stars Thomas Jane, Ron Perlman, and John Malkovich. Simon Hunter is the director. Here is a run down of what the movie is about if you don't know already:
Earth's natural resources have been exhausted by mankind and battle rages between the soldiers of four leading Corporations: the Capitol, Bauhaus, Mishima and Imperial.
Mitch Hunter and Nathan Rooker, battle hardened Capitol soldiers, fight a desperate battle against a Bauhaus advance. When an errant shell destroys an ancient stone seal, they find themselves facing a new enemy: hideous necrmutants, with boneblades that grow from their arms. Mithc barely manages to escape. Nathan does not.
"Mutant Chronicle" follows Mitch and Samuel's mission to venture into the very heart of the darkness in an attempt to save the planet from marauding hordes of deathless mutants.
The mutants multiply by millions and they destroy all before them. The Corporations' leader, Constantine, is about to abandon the planet and leave countless innocents to their desperate fate, when he is approached by Brother Samuel, leader of the Brotherhood, and ancient monastic order
He manages to recruit Mitch, along with a handful of like-minded soldiers: Steiner, honor bound Bauhaus officer; sword wielding Severian; street fighter El Jesus; fearless beauty Duval; and stoic warrior Juba.
Samuel is keep of the Chronicles, a book that prophesies both the rise of the Mutants, and the 'Deliverer' that will destroy them. Samuel believes he is that Deliverer destined to journey deep into the earth and destroy the source of the mutant scourge.
This is going to be a pretty cool movie. The production value looks pretty good from what I have seen. It all comes down to the script. It'll be a fun ride. I've heard it described as a futuristic 'Saving Private Ryan'. I am not sure when it is going to be released in the U.S.A. yet, but it will get a Russian release in December. The movie was in production last year and was set to have a 2008 release date. Here are also some pics from the film that were released last year to remind you of how awesome this movie could be!
