'The Philosophers' Trailer

At an international school in Jakarta, a brilliant but mysterious philosophy teacher challenges his class of twenty graduating seniors to undertake one final thought experiment in order to complete the requirements for graduation. The experiment is to be the most extreme they have ever had to face. Using the power of logic alone, the students must choose which of them would be worthy of a place in an underground shelter built to withstand a fast-approaching nuclear apocalypse. The shelter only has space for ten people, which means certain death for those that are not chosen.

The real-life world of the classroom dramatically segues into the imaginary yet all too real world of the nuclear bunker and the approaching atomic catastrophe. Forced to make impossible decisions, the twenty young students enter an explosive and highly stylised world in which the survival instinct reigns supreme. Murder, deceit, sex and betrayal become the norm as the students strive to survive the impossible scenario. In doing so, they take the audience on an exhilarating journey across multiple realities, each one ever more intense than the last.

i really liked maia mitchell in trapped and castaway (even if her character became really annoying). idk how big a role she has in this, though. /can't watch video

This looks good. Although I am confused on if there is actually an Apocalypse, which is probably the point and means I'll be seeing it most likely.
maskedcunt 5th-Feb-2013 07:52 pm (UTC)
ooh i am intrigued
hera_bearrra 5th-Feb-2013 08:04 pm (UTC)
Oh god. I'd probably be one of the first ones shot in this ~experiment.
rubyboots 5th-Feb-2013 08:08 pm (UTC)
I need to stop automatically adding "Stone?!!?" everytime I read or hear the word "Philosopher" because it always ends in disappointment :(
kidrobot85 5th-Feb-2013 08:09 pm (UTC)
seems super good. really happy this is not based on a YA novel. original story movies are so rare these days.
nazliy 5th-Feb-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
oh this looks good
allysouu 5th-Feb-2013 08:16 pm (UTC)
This looks like it could be really good or at least really interesting.
love_keiko 5th-Feb-2013 08:17 pm (UTC)
WHOAH. this looks REALLY cool!

It's set in my country, so I'm pretty excited for this movie.

There aren't that many white people in Jakarta International School. Just saying.
whizzingfizbee 5th-Feb-2013 11:49 pm (UTC)
lol this. But lbr even if half the cast were POC, the white people would still be the ones in the shelter at the end.
xevochic 6th-Feb-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
FIRST thing that came to my mind.
goodbye22 6th-Feb-2013 08:49 am (UTC)
yup i was expecting at least one Indonesian actor/actress in this.
dawn_queen 5th-Feb-2013 09:04 pm (UTC)
ooooh this looks good!
rissaroo 5th-Feb-2013 11:40 pm (UTC)
looks interesting.
whizzingfizbee 5th-Feb-2013 11:44 pm (UTC)
George Blagden!!!! Yeah that's basically the extent of what I have to offer here. I have to take the rare opportunities to stan when they appear.

But this does actually sound interesting. Any deets on when and what kind of release it's going to have? Also isn't Ginny Weasley in this too?
starbeams 6th-Feb-2013 01:19 am (UTC)
lol this is basically my reaction to it as well I will watch it regardless of anything because George is in it. And she is! And some kid from Glee.
whizzingfizbee 6th-Feb-2013 01:24 am (UTC)
Yay fellow George stan!

I didn't recognize Puck's bb brother. I haven't really watched the new season. And Cormac McLaggen is in it too apparently. I hope it gets some kind of wide theatrical release. It looks much higher budget than I initially thought it was.

Wow this looks so cool

I'm impressed that I actually like the trailer.

I'm quite fond of some of the people in this cast so I'm really looking forward to actually seeing it.
offinlahlahland 6th-Feb-2013 01:15 am (UTC)
Excited for this. I feel like I've been waiting forever to see this so it's nice to finally do so. :)

Ignoring the overwhelming amount of White leads despite this being a school in Southeast Asia, that trailer pretty much tells us exactly who dies in this film.

This Hunger Games in a university setting premise still seems interesting tho.

omw my euro history teacher would make us play this game. it was fun...until i die.
