I must be really out of the loop because I had no idea the Sean Bean post-apocalyptic survival monster movie The Lost Future premieres on Syfy this weekend. Looking at these two clips from this South African production, it looks to potentially be a considerable step up from the usual schlock Syfy typically unspools on their Saturday evenings.
Sean Bean might wish he was back in the Lord of the Rings shire when he finds himself amongst the few humans trying to survive in a primitive wasteland populated by behemoths and mutant manimals in this Syfy original from Mikael Salomon, director of the 2004 remake of Salem’s Lot and 2008 remake of The Andromeda Strain.
A group of post-apocalyptic survivors struggle to survive in a world where jungles and forests and primeval wetlands and deserts have obliterated civilization. They staunchly face genetically mutating beasts and mysterious diseases in an attempt to re-establish the human race as masters of Earth.
The writers are Bev Doyle and Richard Kurti, no strangers to forests or prehistoric monsters, having penned episodes of such British programming as “Robin Hood” and “Primeval”.
Annabelle Wallis (“The Tudors”), Corey Sevier (Decoys), and Eleanor Tomlinson (Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland) co-star.
In these two clips you’ll see the remnants of humanity fighting what appears to be some sort of giant sloth animal and contend with those incredibly agile man-mutants that look like escapees from the Island of Dr. Moreau. If you like what you see, you can tune in to Syfy Saturday night at 9/8 Central to see what else awaits us in The Lost Future.
