Netflix has released the official full trailer for the first of Zack Snyder’s upcoming sci-fi epics in his Rebel Moon saga. Part One: A Child Of Fire looks like classic Snyder, right down to the music choices for the trailer. No, not Hallelujah.
On a colony on the agricultural moon of Veldt, on the edge of the galaxy, a peaceful existence is threatened by the armies of the tyrannical regent Belisarius (Ed Skrein) and the all-powerful Imperium, which oversees the other planets from its home base of Mother World.
When Imperium forces expand out to encompass Veldt’s system, they target the moon as a potentially rich source of food and army recruits. But the natives, unhappy their existence is being threatened, turn to a newcomer named Kora (Sofia Boutella) for help.
The isolated young woman, who has her own history with the Imperium, sets out in search of warriors from other planets to fight the tyrannical armies. But keeping her band of rebels together may be harder than she expected.
The cast is pretty massive. It features Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Stz Nair, Bae Doona, Michiel Huisman, Jena Malone, Cary Elwes, Ray Fisher, Corey Stoll, Alfonso Herrera, Cleopatra Coleman, Stuart Martin, Kingston Foster, Ingvar Sigurdsson, Fra Fee and the voice of Anthony Hopkins alongside Boutella and Skrein.
Snyder co-wrote the film with frequent collaborators Kurt Johnstad (300) and Shay Hatten (Army of the Dead). Which Snyder will turn up? The Dawn Of The Dead and 300 version? Or the Army Of The Dead version? We know he can do massive scale.
Rebel Moon Part 1: A Child of Fire will hit a limited number of screens on December 15th, before landing on the steamer just in time for Christmas on December 22nd.
Rebel Moon Part 2: The Scargiver lands on April 19th 2024.
