Proof of Concept Teaser for Robot Uprising Film “2031”January 23rd, 2017
Actor Catero Colbert (Roadies, Naruto: Shippûden) sent me this concept reel for a science fiction film titled 2031. One key objective for the film is to create an original sci-fi/action franchise in response to the rash of sequels, reboots, and remakes that Hollywood seems so obsessed with these days.
The proof-of-concept teaser stars a couple of big names – Michelle Rodriguez and Lukas Haas, which is impressive given its modest $3,000 budget. While the teaser and its accompanying description are light on plot details, what we know is that the film is set in a chaotic future where robots designed to serve mankind rise up and create an army intent on wiping us out. The film’s protagonist apparently figures out the source of the uprising, and enlists the help of an ex-soldier to help put an end to the killer robots.
Now that plot synopsis certainly doesn’t break any new ground, but I still appreciate the effort to create a new franchise, and I’m sure the completed script will have some surprises.
Check out the teaser to get a taste for the robot-filled world in which 2031 is set, and if you like what you see, be sure to comment or like over on YouTube.
