Alienate Looks Like a More Action-Packed Invasion of the Body Snatchers
The sci-fi thriller Alienate has received a release date of May 5th, when it will come out in select theaters as well as hit VOD platforms. The film itself, as I mentioned in the headline, looks like a more action-packed storyline set within the Invasion of the Body Snatchers universe, which I’m kinda cool with. Personally, I’d love to see more films take the world of other movies and set a new story within. Y’know, kinda like what J.J. Abrams is doing with the Cloverfield universe. If done well, I think it could become a new trend that isn’t a shared universe, reboot, remake, or sequel.
