The first trailer has been released for 2067, an upcoming Australian sci-fi film starring Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road, X-Men: Apocalypse), Ryan Kwanten (Mystery Road, True Blood) and Deborah Mailman (The Sapphires).
The outlook for this planet is rarely good in sci-fi, is it? 2067 finds our world, 47 years from now, ravaged by climate change and leaving humanity with no choice but to use artificial oxygen in order to survive. Utility worker Ethan (Smit-McPhee) is sent into the future on a quest for answers.
The film is directed by Seth Larney, who previously directed a small 2017 Malaysian action film titled Tombiruo and whose credits include digital assets coordinator on The Matrix Reloaded & Revolutions and technical supervisor on X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It’s not often that Australia produces ambitious genre fare that scores a pretty wide release, so fingers firmly crossed this is one to look out for.
2067 will have its world premiere as the Opening Night Film of the 2020 Adelaide Film Festival (October 14 -25) and will be released in Australia by Umbrella Entertainment, with a release date to be announced shortly. RLJ Entertainment will be releasing it in the US on VOD and select cinemas on October 2nd.

An illness caused by the synthetic O2 is killing the worlds’ population and the only hope for a cure comes in the form of a message from the future: “Send Ethan Whyte”. Ethan, an underground tunnel worker, is suddenly thrust into a terrifying new world full of unknown danger as he must fight to save the human race.
