Trailer Spotlight: Z for Zachariah


The apocalypse has certainly had it’s due course in cinema as of late. From Mad Max to Tomorrowland we have our fill of big budget apocalyptic thrillers. So now it’s high time the indie film get their little slice of world ending heaven! The first trailer for director Craig Zobel’s postapocalyptic Z for Zachariah, and it is incredible.

Margot Robbie and Chris Pine are two fine actors that look to flex a more dramatic muscle in this film. Both have put in incredible performances in the past and are likely to give that same charisma that have in those roles. The real cinematic draw to the film is the oscar nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor. Ejiofor is one the best actors working today and has never turned in a bad performance.

Check out the trailer!

Here’s the synopsis

“In the wake of a nuclear war, a young woman (Robbie) survives on her own, fearing she may actually be the proverbial last woman on earth, until she discovers the most astonishing sight of her life: another human being. A distraught scientist (Ejiofor), he’s nearly been driven mad by radiation exposure and his desperate search for others. A fragile, imperative strand of trust connects them. But when a stranger enters the valley (Pine), their precarious bond begins to unravel.”

This is a little piece of indie gold. This trailer has everything you could hope for in a trailer. The cast is spot on the story is provocative and interesting, and it looks beautiful. This promises to be one of the best apocalyptic films of the year.
