Aliens invade earth with the promise of Utopian peace. Humanity falls under an authoritarian reign. Humanity fights back when they realize Utopia is bullshit.

Teaser Trailer for Rupert Wyatt's Sci-Fi 'Captive State' Set in Chicago

"Please rise to greet our legislature!" Focus Features has launched the first teaser trailer for an original sci-fi thriller titled Captive State, the latest from director Rupert Wyatt. The story is set in Chicago and takes place nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force. The movie explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents. It seems to be another fascinating look at the societal divide in America, but framed around the sci-fi concept of alien overlords - a bit like District 9, but set in Chicago. Captive State stars Vera Farmiga, Madeline Brewer, John Goodman, Alan Ruck, Kevin J. O'Connor, James Ransone, Jonathan Majors, D.B. Sweeney, Ashton Sanders, Kevin Dunn, Ta'Rhonda Jones, along with Kiki Layne (from If Beale Street Could Talk) and Machine Gun Kelly. I've been waiting to see something from this, and this is a clever introduction. ...

Aliens Rule The World in First Trailer For Rupert Wyatt's Sci-Fi Thriller Captive State

“No crime. No poverty. No unemployment. The state of our union is strong.”

The first trailer has been released for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Captive State and it looks like a fascinating film! The movie comes from director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and the story is 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".

I love the concept of an alien race that is already ruling over the world. Sure, things may seem like they are great now, but let’s just wait and see if they bust out that cook book “To Serve Man”.

The movie also has a great cast that includes John Goodman, Ashton Sanders (Moonlight), Jonathan Majors (When We Rise) and Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring).

‘Captive State’ Trailer: John Goodman Gives Thanks In Extraterrestrial-Occupied Chicago

Rupert Wyatt’s career trajectory post-2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” has certainly been curious. After the tepid response to his follow-up “The Gambler,” Wyatt has mostly turned towards working in television, directing episodes of “Turn: Washington’s Spies” and ‘The Exorcist‘ series. Most intriguing though is that Wyatt is slated to direct episodes for Showtime’s highly anticipated “Halo” adaptation due in 2020.

The series is being written by Kyle Killen (Awake), with Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) directing, and during the Television Critics Association press tour, Showtime’s President of Programming Gary Levine has been chatting about the upcoming series.

“The premise for us was always it needs to stand alongside our other Showtime shows and look like it belongs there while at the same time servicing the fans of this enormous franchise,” said Levine. “We don’t worry about the odds. We just plow ahead and we’re very optimistic.”

“It is a new story, but we are being incredibly respectful of the canon and working with Microsoft 343 people to

Steven Spielberg's Halo Series Will Tell a Brand New Story But Master Chief Will Be The Star

You'll also be happy to know that Master Chief will have a lead role in the series. When asked about Master Chief's role, President of Programming at Showtime Gary Levin said:

Showtime’s ‘Halo’ Live-Action Series Green Lit for 10 Episodes

Showtime's Halo live-action series has spun itself out of development hell and into a 10-episode commitment along with 343 Industries and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television.

With Halo, based on the venerable and marquee Microsoft Xbox video game franchise, Showtime is aiming to directly compete with Amazon's upcoming The Lord of the Rings series and HBO's Game of Thrones along with its forthcoming spin-offs.

‘Halo’ video games are being adapted into Showtime’s ‘most ambitious series ever’

Video game adaptations have had a shaky track record, but Showtime‘s newly announced endeavor shows significant promise. The premium cable network has ordered a 10-episode season of “Halo,” a live-action drama adapted from the Xbox franchise that is among the most popular video game series of all time.

The “Halo” video games launched in 2001, telling the story of a 26th-century war between the human race and an alien species known as the Covenant. The title refers to a series of massive, ring-shaped structures with the power to wipe out life in the galaxy.

Showtime has tapped Kyle Killen as executive producer and showrunner. He previously created the short-lived but critically acclaimed series “Lone Star” and “Awake.” Rupert Wyatt will also executive produce in addition to directing multiple episodes. He certainly knows his way around visually audacious science-fiction, having helmed “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” (2011).

Showtime Moving Forward With Live Action Halo TV Series

If you’ve been on the scene long enough to remember those Halo Lan parties from the days of the original Xbox, then odds are you’ve been waiting for a substantial live action adaptation for quite some time. I mean, we’ve had various web series and the comedic Red vs. Blue to digest in the time since, but that doesn’t change the fact that a major motion picture or a network TV series have eluded us.

In fact, there’s been word that Showtime was ready to give gamers their reward for some time, but aside from progress reports here and there, there hasn’t been anything too concrete to speak of. Fortunately, that all changes today.

As it turns out, Kyle Killen (Awake) will help spearhead the 10-episode, one-hour drama for Showtime, with Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) being hired to direct multiple episodes and executive produce.
