God Unleashes an Apocalypse of Angels in the Trailer for Legion
08.13.09 by REELZ
The red band trailer for the religious apocalypse movie Legion is out, and it is chock full of very entertaining angel-fu, grandma-fu, and all sorts of mayhem. There are definite echoes of the Prophesy series here, but updated with lots of up-to-the-minute visual effects and a stylishly noir landscape. Once again the angels are out to get us all, and humanity's only hope lies in a new messiah who is slouching toward nowheresville in the desert to be born. Here's a thumbnail of the plot from director Scott Stewart.
...the last time God lost faith in man, he sent a flood. This time he sent what you see outside. So, what if God decides that he's lost faith in man? We always talk about having to have faith in God, but what happens if it happens in reverse? God loses faith in man and says "do it over"?
Although this is Stewart's first feature movie, he has very extensive experience as a visual-effects artist, and it definitely shows in the trailer.
