The live-action pilot for an adaptation of Enormous, in which the world as we know it has ended, launches next Thursday (March 20th) on Machinima; and we have a look at its trailer and artwork right here.
The pilot/short film is based on the critically-acclaimed graphic novel of the same name that launched last year. Written by Tim Daniel and drawn by Mehdi Cheggour, Enormous tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world in which massive insect-like beasts have taken over the world and humans are now the bottom of the food chain.
The creative minds of director BenDavid Grabinski (short film Cost of Living), writer Andre Ovredal (Trollhunter), and producer Adrian Askarieh (Hitman, Agent 47) are taking Enormous from the page to the screen.
You’ll find the goods below plus synopses of both the film and the graphic novel. Be sure to check back in a week for the full video. After the pilot debuts, the plan is to turn Enormous into a full-fledged series that can play on various digital platforms the company appears on, including the new Xbox One.
Enormous Short Film Synopsis:
The film picks up years after E Day, the worldwide attack of massive insect-like beasts, as the remaining humans from all walks of life must band together to survive and fight back against the monstrous invaders. Viewers are introduced to Ellen (Ceren Lee), a mother who has lost her child, and watch as she prepares to play a major role in the human resistance.
About the Enormous Graphic Novel:
Enormous tells the full tale of the aftermath of a vast ecological cataclysm which spawns colossal beasts unlike anything ever witnessed. Humankind stares down imminent extinction, and the only law is to hunt or be hunted. It’s survival of the biggest as the earth-shaking sci-fi action adventure continues.
As the last vestige of humankind spirals towards annihilation, Ellen Grace leads the only remaining North American Search & Recovery Team through the deadly giant monster-infested streets of Phoenix. However, she soon encounters another predator far more dangerous than the other-worldly creatures stalking the desolate city: her fellow humans.
