Alien occupation movie Captive State has a gritty trailer


Director Rupert Wyatt presents a realistic science fiction thriller that depicts both sides of life for those living under an alien occupation.

Drawing comparisons with ‘Arrival’ and ‘District 9’, ‘Captive State’ is a new science fiction thriller from director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes).

Almost ten years after an alien occupation there are those that collaborate with their captors and those that resist. The filmmaker tells the story from the perspective of both sides in this bleak, science fiction thriller.



The film stars John Goodman and Vera Farmiga and is set to hit cinemas in the U.S. from March 29th 2019 and U.K. big screens a month later on April 12th.
