Update: Outlander

Another trailer for the vikings vs alien monster movie Outlander (US-2008; dir. Howard McCain) has just surfaced. I like it even more than the previous! It emphasises the sci-fi aspects of the storyline, which just makes the whole project seem fractionally more exciting.

I’ve read a few comments by folk who find the concept of an alien hunting an alien monster/predator during the time of the Vikings too outré to work easily. But I do not understand that attitude at all. From my way of thinking, the concept offers a rich vein of visual and narrative possibility for the filmmakers to mine — and, given decent production values (which Outlander seems to have), I don’t know how this film could fail to be interesting at the very least. It’s one of those ideas that’s so obvious you wonder why it hasn’t been done before!
