The day has finally arrived! No, not the first day of spring (although we’re happy to see that also); what we’re talking about is the debut of Machinima’s live-action pilot for an adaptation of Enormous, in which the world as we know it has ended.
The pilot/short film is based on the critically-acclaimed graphic novel of the same name. 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) have taken Enormous from the page to the screen, and you can watch the video below.
It stars Ceren Lee, Steven Brand, Billy Miller, Erica Gimpel, Garrett Coffey, Charles Melton, Dallas Liu, Joe Swanberg, Simon Barrett, Todd Farmer, and Nathan Moore.
In addition, you can click here to pre-order Enormous Issue #1 from the new ongoing monthly comic book series. Featuring an exclusive poster art cover from artist Mehdi Cheggour (see that below the video), the variant Issue #1 is available exclusively from Hastings Entertainment. The release date is June 25, 2014.
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.
