The Prospect

The Prospect is a promising looking space Western starring Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal, and will be premiering at SXSW. Via Slashfilm:

The moment Pedro Pascal strutted on screen in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, he proved he was ready to be a bonafide movie star. The actor has been stealing scenes since he first appeared in Game of Thrones, going on to play a starring role in the Netflix series Narcos. Now, he will finally be the lead in a feature film.

Prospect, a science-fiction “space Western” from directors Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell, stars Pascal as a father who travels with his teen daughter (Sophie Thatcher) to mine for riches on a toxic alien planet. The film will premiere at the SXSW festival later this week.

The trailer is short in plot but long on mood. There are eerie shots of the dense woods that cover the toxic alien planet the father-daughter pair are mining. And despite being an independent film, the effects look impressive, with Pascal’s character weeding out a strange substance from the ground. Soon, the moodiness is traded for thrills, as Pascal and Thatcher’s characters meet their competition in the harsh terrain. Someone is stabbed, machinery malfunctions, and Thatcher pulls a gun on her father. It’s definitely an intriguing trailer that plays to its strengths.
