Invasion Trailer # 2 Puts Sam Neill Against Alien Invaders
Apple TV + has released a new trailer for its upcoming sci-fi offering, Invasion. Adopt a unique narrative approach, Invasion is seen through the different perspectives of different people across the world. Described as a character-driven drama by Apple, everyone tries to cope with the impending collapse of civilization in their own way on the series. Invasion is created by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of the Future Past, Sherlock Holmes) and David Weil (Hunters, Solos) and stars Sam Neill in the lead role. After an ambiguous first trailer, this second is full of action and gives a better look at the Invasionthe characters and the plot of. You can check out the trailer below.
The trailer opens with the US President addressing the world about the seemingly unrelated and inexplicable phenomena happening everywhere. She reveals that the power outages and wanton destruction are linked to alien beings. “What is visited on our Earth is not from our Earth,” she says. Next, we see the central characters grappling with the effects of the invasion. Sam neill plays the sheriff of a small town, John Bell Tyson, on the verge of retirement, who is investigating supernatural events occurring in his county. Invasion also stars Golshifteh Farahani (Extraction, The stone of patience) as Aneesha Malik, a Syrian immigrant and mother of two living with her husband Ahmed in New York. Other cast members include Shamier Anderson (Wynonna earp) as Trevante Ward, a soldier stationed in Afghanistan, and Shiori Kutsuna (Deadpool 2) as Mitsuki, a member of the Japanese space program.
Invasion was designed by acclaimed writers Simon Kinberg and David Weill. Based on an original idea, Kinberg said that Invasion has more than stunning visuals and alien destruction. In a recent interview with IGN, Kinberg revealed her unlikely inspiration for the series, calling it a mix between HG Wells War of the Worlds and the film Babel by Alejandro G. Iñárritu in 2006. He also discussed the themes of alienation in society and countries invaded by other countries, stating: “What has been, from the beginning, the biggest appeal to me and the thing that excited me the most was playing out the reality of what it feels like to be invaded. I think there are unfortunately a lot of nations in the world that know what it looks like, but there are a lot of nations that don’t, and America is one of them. “
He added: “One is the fact that we are all aliens, that there is a feeling of alienation that I think all people carry with them in one form or another whether they are alienated. from their families, alienated from their communities, alienated from their work, there is a sense of disconnection. And I think I was really trying to find scripts on our show that would explore that feeling of alienation and really explode it under the magnifying glass of a real alien invasion. “
Invasion reportedly budgeted in excess of $ 200 million, making it the streamer’s most ambitious show to date. But that’s a paltry sum considering Apple’s net worth, and it’s a necessary decision, too. Apple offers great dramas like Ted lasso and The morning show, but they don’t have one to compete with the top shows on Netflix or Disney +. With a bit of luck, Invasion change that and put Apple TV + on the map. Plus, it’s been a while since we’ve had any newsworthy alien invasion stories breaking new ground. The first three episodes of Invasion will debut on Apple TV + on October 22, 2021, followed by 7 episodes airing weekly. Make sure to check it out.
