Joe Miale‘s Revolt (2017) movie trailer stars Lee Pace, Bérénice Marlohe, Amy Louise Wilson, Alan Santini, and Tom Fairfoot. Revolt‘s plot synopsis: “The story of humankind’s last stand against a cataclysmic alien invasion. Set in the war-ravaged African countryside, a U.S. soldier and a French foreign aid worker team up to survive the alien onslaught. Their bond will be tested as they search for refuge across a crumbling world.”
Humans have been killing humans with unmanned drones for years now. In Revolt, it seems that a war-like alien race got the same idea for humanity. In Revolt‘s case, humanity can’t strike back at their attackers. Humanity doesn’t even know who off-world is attacking them.
How can humanity possibly prevail in this scenario (which is a good one, narrative-wise, by the way)? Even if humanity destroys every single drone on the planet, the aliens can just send more. I am looking forward to how the writers of Revolt handled this questions.
The Psychlos made a similar strike against humanity in the book (not the garbage film adaptation) Battlefield Earth. If you read the book, you know what that resulted in.
Lee Pace is the human being that the viewer follows throughout Revolt. Pace’s performances in Halt and Catch Fire assure me that he is more than capable of carrying this film.
