If you've been paying attention to the news, extraterrestrials, UFOs (or UAPs, if ya nasty), and shadowy government conspiracies have been having their day in the sun recently, which makes this a perfect time for the good folks at 20th Century to release Brian Duffield's No One Will Save You, a forthcoming extraterrestrial/home invasion thriller landing on Hulu later this month.
Today brings us our first look at the film's trailer, which gives us a very intriguing look at what happens when a young woman named Brynn (Booksmart's Kaitlyn Dever) finds her home under attack by sinister alien forces.
Take a look!
Included in 20th Century's press release are some interesting thoughts on the film from Duffield:
"AN INVASION IS IMMINENT, according to Brian Duffield, who wrote and directed 20th Century Studios’ “No One Will Save You,” a sci-fi psychological thriller told through the eyes of a lonely young woman with a painful backstory. “I wanted the movie to take the lead of a small intimate character study and drop an alien invasion on top of them,” says Duffield. “The end of the world won't only be for those that are ready for it, and the idea of an alien movie rudely bursting the bubble our character has spent years building and cultivating felt like a unique way to tell a favorite story.
Duffield set out to create a character so compelling, viewers would want to learn more about her with or without aliens. Unfortunately for her, he says, they show up about eight minutes into the movie. “I think there's a deeply buried feeling that every alien invasion movie could turn out to be true because they remain such an unknown in our daily lives. As our world careens more and more out of control, maybe there's even a desire that there's something out there smarter than us that can help put us on a more sane path. The aliens in No One Will Save You are superior to humans in every way, which makes Brynn and her surprising resistance somewhat puzzling to them.”
Adds Duffield about his star, Kaitlyn Dever:
“We were so excited to have Kaitlyn join us because—like Brynn being thrust into a whole new world—Kaitlyn had never done a movie so aggressively physical and sci-fi before. I think audiences will be blown away by how commanding Kaitlyn is on screen as she uses her solitude and silence to create a truly unique and complex character.”
Here at FANGORIA, we're big fans of home invasion horror, extraterrestrial horror, Kaitlyn Dever, and writer/director Brian Duffield, whose Spontaneous remains one of the best (and bloodiest) rom-coms of recent years. In other words, we are absolutely primed to check out No One Will Save You when it hits Hulu on September 22nd. Mark your calendars, folks: we suspect this one's gonna be something special!
