Microbudget filmmaker Sonny Fernandez has been keeping us all posted about the progress on his apocalyptic epic The Last Battleground, a film that appears very low on budget but very high in ambition. Now he’s sharing the final trailer for his magnum opus.
I’ll just let Fernandez tell us in his own words what The Last Battleground is all about:
“The Last Battleground follows a bunch of seemingly unconnected characters: a pair of inept hitmen, an abused girl who relies on an invisible friend to get her through rough times, a young homeless woman, and an artist who’s been noticing a change in the world around him. Their paths and others will intersect one faithful night because heaven and hell have had their ultimate showdown for control of the earth, and damned if hell didn’t score the upset victory.
Where do you run when salvation no longer exists? Where do you hide when the ground is opening up and letting unholy creatures run wild? How do you survive in a world where the dead are coming back as Lovecraftian demons manipulated by their earthly sins?
The film stars Cody Tergesen, Justin Kavlie, Liz Dockter, Kim Haarman, Dan Sorenson, and Sam Ova.”
Here’s the final trailer. If you can overlook the frequent sense that this hell on earth looks like a papier-mâché holocaust, The Last Battleground (MySpace page here) looks like a film with some potential.
