When a meteor strikes the Earth in 2055, an alien biological plant is rapidly growing, killing all other life along with its spread. The fate of the Earth depends on a team of elite forces who must battle both alien and homegrown attacks.
An ambitious launch for Hong Kong-based special effects firm 天下一 One Cool, science-fiction disaster film Warriors of Future 明日战记 released its first official trailer (on top of a previous teaser trailer) recently. Directed by award-winning visual efects supervisor Ng Yuen Fai (Tai Chi Zero, Painted Skin), the film stars Louis Koo, Sean Lau, Carina Lau, Nick Cheung Ka-fai, and Tse Kwan-ho.
The director for this is new, with his only previous experiences being special effects supervision. Like The Wandering Earth , the special effects look really good in the trailer while the dialogue seems weak. With The Wandering Earth proving earlier this year that a homegrown sci-fi disaster film can be a hit in mainland, we’ll see if this film can do the same for the Hong Kong special effects and sci-fi film industries.
