A trailer has arrived online for writer-director Francesco Cinquemani’s upcoming action sci-fi Andron which stars Alec Baldwin, Danny Glover and Michelle Ryan; check it out below after the official synopsis…

"All this is Andròn - the quest for the contenders." The first trailer has debuted for an interesting sci-fi film called Andròn - The Black Labyrinth, or just Andron. It's about a dark, claustrophobic maze being run by Alec Baldwin, who broadcasts the fights of the various contenders hoping to survive. This seems like some weird mash-up of Cube and The Hunger Games, with a dose of The Maze Runner because of course. The ensemble cast includes Michelle Ryan, Danny Glover, Leo Howard, Gale Harold, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Gaia Scodellaro and Margareth Madè. There are some cool moments in this (the opening looks great) but I'm not sure if it'll be any good, especially with such a low IMDb rating. Fire it up. Here's the first trailer for Francesco Cinquemani's Andròn - The Black Labyrinth, found on YouTube: A group of people are plunged into a dark, claustrophobic maze, where they must fight to survive, »

With the success of "The Hunger Games" and "The Maze Runner" franchises, there's inevitable low-budget films trying to copy that style - one of which is Italian filmmaker Francesco Cinquemani's UK sci-fi film "Andron - The Black Labyrinth". Today, the trailer for it has dropped.
Alec Baldwin is the President Snow of this particular film, one in which a group of people are plunged into a dark, claustrophobic maze, where they must fight to survive as the outside world watches. Michelle Ryan, Danny Glover, Leo Howard, Gale Harold, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Gaia Scodellaro and Margareth Made also star in the film which hasn't set a release date as yet.

"Andròn" apparently was on the festival circuit last year, but this is the first I'm hearing of its existence. But at any rate, the sci-fi movie now has a trailer and the compelling point of interest is Alec Baldwin, who takes a starring role in the kind of genre movie he doesn't generally do.

Cannes — The Irish Film and Television Academy has revealed its Rising Star Award nominees, who are writer-directors Rebecca Daly, Alex Fegan and Stephen Fingleton, and actor Barry Ward. The winner will be announced at the Ifta Film and Drama Awards ceremony on April 9.
The award, sponsored by the Irish Film Board, puts a spotlight on Irish professionals who have “not only honed their crafts in the formative years of their career, but who have also excelled in their respective fields.” Previous recipients include Saoirse Ronan, Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, John Michael McDonagh and Jamie Dornan.
Daly made her feature debut “The Other Side of Sleep,” written with Glenn Montgomery and starring Antonia Campbell-Hughes, in 2011. The film was selected for the Cannes Résidence du Festival and premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival.
