Today we published the 100 Best Sci-Fi Films Of All Time, with each selection pushing the boundaries or offering something inventive in the overstuffed genre. Marking the opposite end of the spectrum is “Kill Switch,” which looks fairly disposable despite a pretty decent cast.
Dan Stevens, “Skyfall” Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe and Charity Wakefield star in this film from Dutch director Tim Smit, which tells the (cautionary?) tale about a hunt for unlimited energy that goes dangerously awry. Here’s the official synopsis:
Acclaimed writer-director Tim Smit explodes on to the scene with his futuristic, VFX-heavy feature debut! Kill Switch charts the story of a pilot battling to save his family and the planet, based on Smit’s short What’s In The Box? Set in a future version of the world, the video game style plot follows an experiment for unlimited energy, harnessing parallel universes, which goes wrong. Chased by drones and soldiers, pilot and physicist Will Porter must race through an imploding world to get the Redivider box to a tower, which will save humanity, including his family, in the real world.
“Kill Switch” opens on June 16th.
