In what feels like what would happen if the movie Pandorum met the insanity of the 2018 film Climax, the upcoming film Voyagers has been nonetheless described as "Lord of the Flies in space". It does seem to feel like that with a trailer and poster released today indicating another modern film attempting to push the visceral envelope. All in hopes it conveys a new angle to the argument that people do questionable things when their inhibitions are removed:
To clarify, however, the synopsis is as follows:
Set in the near future, the film chronicles the odyssey of 30 young men and women who are sent deep into space on a multi-generational mission in search of a new home. The mission descends into madness, as the crew reverts to its most primal state, not knowing if the real threat they face is what's outside the ship or who they're becoming inside it.
Whether it does that or not remains to be seen but, released with the poster, the teaser trailer gives a strong idea of what to expect when the film hits theaters next month:
Voyagers stars Tye Sheridan, Lily-Rose Depp, Fionn Whitehead, Colin Farrell, Chanté Adams, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Viveik Kalra, Archie Madekwe, and Quintessa Swindell. It is written and directed by Neil Burger. It is set to be released on April 9th.
