Focus Features will release the film in U.S. theaters on August 17, 2018.
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.
Captive State is directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Gambler), who also co-wrote the original screenplay with Erica Beeney. The cast features John Goodman, Ashton Sanders (Moonlight), Jonathan Majors and Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Vera Farmiga.
