Captive State Trailer: Aliens Now Rule Earth

U.S. President Ronald Reagan once posited the theory that, if facing an alien invasion, the world would unite together unlike ever before to meet that resistance together. This is a theory that also worked its way into Alan Moore’s classic graphic novel Watchmen. But what about if that alien force took over? What happens in the years that follow?

This seems to be the base premise of the upcoming film Captive State, which comes courtesy of Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt. After being occupied for so long, any alliances would likely disperse, and in this film, the two factions that seem to be forming are those of cooperation and resistance. This movie seems to be showing the two sides.

Below is the official synopsis for Captive State:

“Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, ‘Captive State’ explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents.”

It’s certainly an interesting concept, and I’d be interested to not only see this in theaters, but see how well this performs with audiences. Given how divided the world seems to be, it could potentially show some interesting parallels between now and then.
