I've got an extremely cool trailer for a wildly insane looking alien invasion action thriller called Before We Vanish. The Japanese film was directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Pulse, Tokyo Sonata) and it looks like a very different and unique take on the sci-fi genre. It definitely offers a fascinating perspective on the genre and as you'll see in the trailer, things get brutal. Here's the synopsis:
Kiyoshi Kurosawa reinvents the alien movie as a unique and profoundly human tale of love and mystery. Three aliens travel to Earth on a reconnaissance mission in preparation for a mass invasion. Having taken possession of human bodies, the visitors rob the hosts of their essence – good, evil, property, family, belonging – leaving only hollow shells, which are all but unrecognizable to their loved ones. Equally hilarious, thrilling, and profound, BEFORE WE VANISH reminds audiences of the continued strength of one of Japanese cinema's most unique auteurs – and the value of the human spirit.
Before We Vanish will hit theaters on February 2nd. I'm excited about checking this film out. Watch the trailer for yourself and tell us what you think!
