A Quiet Place meets The Martian in the dazzling sci-fi thriller SETTLERS, the story of a family who have made their home in a barren wilderness on Mars, only to have it torn apart when a dangerous stranger intrudes into their compound.
But when hostile outsiders appear in the nearby hills, Remmy becomes aware of the disturbing reality of her situation, that her parents have shielded her from all this time. She is taken hostage by the outsider, Jerry (Ismael Cruz Córdova), and as time goes by, the probability of escape for Remmy (now played by Nell Tiger Free) grows increasingly remote, while Jerry’s intentions grow more and more sinister.
Set to a superb score by acclaimed musician Nitin Sawhney (Mowgli, Midnight’s Children), SETTLERS
is a visually striking, wildly original and pulse-quickening tale of
survival and redemption, which also explores pertinent issues such as
immigration and isolation.
SETTLERS is London-based writer/director Wyatt Rockefeller’s first feature. The fantastic cast includes Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) as the heads of the struggling family. Nell Tiger Free (Game of Thrones), Ismael Cruz Cordova (The Undoing), and award-winner Brooklynn Prince, the talented star of The Florida Project, also star.
SETTLERS will be released at selected UK cinemas and on Digital Platforms July 30th.
