Colm McCarthy’s upcoming film The Girl with All the Gifts, based on the same-named novel penned by M. R. Carey, has some presents for us today as we have the official UK trailer and an image gallery. Dig it!

The flick opens in UK theaters on September 9th.

From the Press Release:
Saban Films is closing on U.S. distribution rights to The Girl with All the Gifts, directed by Colm McCarthy (“Peaky Blinders,” “Sherlock,” “Outcast”). Adapted by M. R. Carey from his own novel of the same title, the post-apocalyptic thriller stars Gemma Arterton (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Clash of the Titans), Paddy Considine (The Bourne Ultimatum, Hot Fuzz), six-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close (Guardians of the Galaxy, Albert Nobbs, Dangerous Liaisons), and Sennia Nanua, in her breakthrough performance.

The Girl with All the Gifts is set in a dystopian world where a seemingly normal and very intelligent little girl lives in an underground army bunker with other children her age. They are all experimental cases being examined by scientists – led by Dr. Caldwell (Close) – to find a cure for a fungal spore that has infected the planet.

“Carey has adapted his novel into a film with an unmatched level of cataclysm,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley. “The Girl with All the Gifts is a sophisticated movie, with McCarthy’s vision and this dynamic cast, and we know that our audiences will be hooked from start to finish.”

The BFI (British Film Institute) and Creative England financed the film, which was produced by Camille Gatin and Angus Lamont. Bill Bromiley and Ness Saban negotiated the deal on behalf of Saban Films with Altitude’s Mike Runagall representing the filmmakers. Altitude Film Sales is handling ROW sales. Warner Bros. UK will release the film in the UK.
