Superhero movies are, without a doubt, the biggest commodity in Hollywood these days. But when it comes to finding ways to mix superhero films with more “horror” aspects, it’s not an easy task. After all, it’s been a while since we’ve seen something along the lines of The Guyver, Darkman, and the like. That’s why I’m rather fascinated and intrigued by Gravitas Ventures upcoming sci-fi thriller At First Light, which will be coming to theaters and VOD on September 28. While it doesn’t have the campiness of the aforementioned titles, it certainly seems to have the maturity and intensity.
Today, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the film that showcases the powers of Alex (Stefanie Scott) as she escapes potential capture in her home. You can watch it for yourself above.
“Sean and Alex go on the run after Alex has a close encounter with mysterious orbs of light that leave her with extraordinary powers. As they flee from their families, the police and a covert government agency, Alex and Sean find themselves at the center of an unprecedented event in human history. First contact. As her powers grow stronger and more dangerous, Sean must decide whether staying with Alex and discovering the truth behind her transformation is worth dying for.”
Directed by Jason Stone, At First Light stars Théodore Pellerin, Stefanie Scott, Kate Burton, Saïd Taghmaoui, and Percy Hynes White.
