Trailer Watch: Predestination

The Spierig Brothers’ last film was another genre collaboration with Ethan Hawke called Day Breakers. A post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie where the human race is all but extinct having been turned into vampires, it had moments of sheer brilliance, but was also a bit of a mess. This is why the trailer for Predestination excites me so much. It just seems tighter. It has a great sci-fi noir look, the time travel effect is great, and the plot (at least at first glance) doesn’t seem to have the control of a snowball rolling down a mountain. It might end up like that sure, but for now just let me just have my moment.
