It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from the makers of The Vanguard, the post-apocalyptic British zombie film directed by “>Matthew Hope (interview). Finally we have some meaty updates for you on this very cool looking project!
First off, on the right you’ll see the first poster for The Vanguard, which doesn’t actually make it look like a zombie movie at all. Not really a bad thing, though, since it’s got a classy look with just a subtle hint of the undead.
Second, 24 FPS found a new international trailer for The Vanguard making its way around YouTube, which you can check out below. For those out of the Vanguard loop, here’s some plot for your ass:
”The world is in chaos – the last known oil fields are depleted, over-population has reached critical levels & mankind is about to become a thing of the past. From this apocalyptic nightmare, an entity known as the Corporation devised a course of action to cull the human race and start a mass depopulation program. But the drug they created to kill instead reduces humans to a primitive ape-like state, now known as Biosyns.
Their sight reduced to virtual blindness, the Biosyns rely on scent and sound to survive, running wild in the unpopulated countryside.But for Max — a young man cast adrift into the wilderness to live as a hunter/gatherer– the Biosyns are the enemy, and must be fought to preserve his very existence. Max has forged a life without human contact, and every day is a battle to stay alive. Soon the Biosyns begin to evolve – learning first to communicate, then banding together, their vision returning — and now they’re coming for Max.”
There’s a good chance a distro announcement will be made soon for the flick, so keep your eyeballs here!
