Official New Trailer For James Franco and Milla Jovovich's Post-Apocalyptic Action Film FUTURE WORLD
Last week, a trailer was released for a new sci-fi western-style film produced by Lionsgate called Future World. That was not an official trailer and the studio asked us to take the post down until the official trailer was released. Well now the official trailer has been released and my opinion of it hasn't changed. It still looks awful. Below you will find my original post, along with a new synopsis and the official trailer.
Future World was co-directed by and stars James Franco. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world exactly like Mad Max, and it looks like a pretty terrible film. I don't know how Franco went from directing a great film like The Disaster Artist, to this Future World movie, but he did, and I don't know what he was thinking! Maybe he thought it would be fun?
He even managed to bring a decent cast on board to star in the film, including Milla Jovovich, Lucy Liu, Margarita Levieva, Suki Waterhouse, Method Man, Snoop Dogg, Elisha Henig, and Scott Haze.
The only thing that I can think of is that Franco just wanted to make a bad rip off of Mad Max on purpose. It looks like something we might see on the SyFy Channel. I don't know, the whole thing just seems like a joke, but it's not. It's a real movie! Here's the new synopsis:
In a post-apocalyptic world, where water and gasoline have long since dried-up, a prince from the oasis (one of the last known safe-havens) must venture out to find medicine for the ailing queen (Lucy Liu), but along the way he gets mixed up with the warlord (James Franco) and his robot Ash (Suki Waterhouse), which leads to a daring journey through the desolate wastelands.
Franco co-directed the film with Bruce Thierry Cheung (The Color of Time, Don't Come Back from the Moon) from a screenplay he wrote with Jeremy Cheung and Jay Davis. Lionsgate will release Future World on May 25th.
Maybe some of you will enjoy the trailer more than I did. Does it look like a good movie to you?
