Ephrata, PA, May 17, 2015 –(PR.com)– The first teaser trailer has debuted for the upcoming Kevin Carvell produced sci-fi adventure film “Zero: Dawn of the Darklighters,” from award-winning writer/director William Wall.
Sent away by his dying “Mother,” Zero, a small android, leaves the alien world of Nostromo behind in search of another home. Over a thousand years later, Zero’s ship is taken by The Red Dragon, a mercenary ship, and Zero is sent aimlessly adrift in space. After another fifteen years, Zero lands on a remote planet, broken. He is found by a junk dealer named Jagger, who then sells the android to a man named Rooks, who recognizes the small robot. Rooks repairs him, and Zero discovers that during his fifteen years adrift in space, Rooks was reluctantly part of a team that reverse engineered Zero’s spare parts, found aboard his ship, into three prototype androids called “Darklighters.”
One prototype, called “Invicta,” has taken control of a dystopian world, and is determined to find Zero’s lost home world of Nostromo, where he believes a weapon of great power resides. As an impending battle stirs up between the two rival planets, Zero and his new found friends must stop the last Darklighter from reaching Nostromo and attaining the greatest weapon in the known Universe.
“Zero: Dawn of the Darklighters” is based on the 2014 award-winning short film “Zero” and is a production of Halo Cinematic. The film stars Caroline Amiguet (“2012: Doomsday”), Mike Burnell (“The Immortal Edward Lumley”), Randy Davison (“The Teleporter”), Sam Diego, Garrett Eland (“The Teleporter”), James Hong (“Blade Runner”), Doug Jones (“Hellboy”), Merrick McCartha (“Criminal Minds”), Marc McClure (“Back to the Future”, “Superman”), and Pia Thrasher (“Ghostline”). Kimy Wall (“The Immortal Edward Lumley”), Kevin Carvell (“Survivor”), and Matt Sivertson (“Just Desserts”) serve as producers. Steve Garbade (“The Immortal Edward Lumley”) is set to score. William Wall writes and directs.
No release date has yet been set.
