Netflix I AM MOTHER:
Netflix has released the first trailer and poster for the upcoming sci-fi film I Am Mother. Directed by Grant Sputore, the film actually debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year as an independent movie, at which point Netflix picked it up to distribute it through its streaming service.
The film opens in an abandoned, non-de-script, and very clean bunker zero days after an extinction-level event wiped out humanity. Mother (voiced by Rose Byrne), an anthropomorphic robot, has been put in charge of 63,000 human embryos and selects one to harvest, nurture, and raise. Enter “Daughter” (Clara Rugaard), who lives her life as the only human on earth, bound to the sterile hallways of this labyrinthine science lab. Until one day her world is upended when a stranger, played by Hilary Swank, arrives outside the bunker.
Here’s the official synopsis for I Am Mother:
I AM MOTHER is a sci-fi thriller about a teenage girl (Clara Rugaard), who is the first of a new generation of humans to be raised by Mother (Rose Byrne), a robot designed to repopulate the earth after the extinction of humankind. But the pair’s unique relationship is threatened when an injured stranger (Hilary Swank) arrives with news that calls into question everything Daughter has been told about the outside world and her Mother’s intentions.
Warner Bros. Blinded by the Light:
New Line has released the first trailer for Blinded by the Light, the Sundance sensation from Bend It Like Beckham director Gurinder Chadha. Based on the memoir “Greetings from Bury Park” by journalist Sarfraz Manzoor —who also co-wrote the film with Chadha and Paul Mayeda Berges—Blinded by the Light follows a young British-Pakistani boy named Javed (Viveik Kalra) who comes of age in 1980s England to the tune of his idol, Bruce Springsteen.
Here is the official synopsis for Blinded by the Light:
1987, Margaret Thatcher’s England. Javed, a 16-year-old British Pakistani boy, lives in the town of Luton. His father’s recent job termination and the neighborhood skinheads are a daily reminder of the difficult times he’s living in. What young Javed really wants is to be a writer—something his father doesn’t approve of or understand—and when a new friend loans him a few Bruce Springsteen cassettes, Javed is changed forever. The Boss’s working-class anthems and affirming lyrics seem to speak directly to Javed, emboldening him to find his own voice as a writer, stand up to the racism around him, and challenge his father’s rigid ideals.
Based on the memoir Greetings from Bury Park by journalist/writer Sarfraz Manzoor, Blinded by the Light is a comedic, joyous musical companion piece to writer/director Gurinder Chadha’s 2002 hit film, Bend It Like Beckham. Heartwarming and inspiring, Javed’s story reminds us of the transformative, universal power of music to transcend race, class, and nationality and bind us all on a human level.
Blinded By The Light in Theaters August 14, 2019.
