Have you had enough of the whole “dystopian society makes people kill each other for sport” film genre that the Hunger Games series spawned?
AMBI Distribution has released the trailer for Francesco Cinquemani’s Andron, which opens on June 3. Starring East Hampton’s Alec Baldwin as the “big bad” (that’s nerd-speak for villain), Andron appears to take its inspiration from just about every other dystopian thriller movie.
Here’s the official synopsis: In the year 2154, a group of young men and women awake in a dark claustrophobic maze. They don’t remember who they are or how they got stuck in the Black Labyrinth of ANDRON. The group must learn to decipher codes, understand the signals and beat the tests in this mysterious and bizarre place. Out of necessity they struggle to form a bond to survive, while the outside world watches and wagers on their fate.
To Andron’s credit, the cast seems a little older than the typical MTV/CW teen set, with Bionic Woman’s Michelle Ryan and Queer as Folk’s Gale Harold among the group of “contestants.” Danny Glover will also star.
