Just ask the people of California who woke up two pitch orange skies caused by acres of wildfires; climate change is a real thing. And Hollywood is responding to it by…making more movies warning of the dangers of doing nothing. Well, at least it’s something, I guess. The trippy new sci-fi film 2067 is another that threatens the extinction of all humanity if something isn’t done.
Starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, 2067 takes place in a future in which climate change has destroyed all of the natural oxygen in the air, forcing humanity to exist on artificial air. When something goes wrong and those who breathe it come down with a mysterious illness, an ordinary man is sent a message from the future that he is the only one who can stop it.
The film co-stars True Blood actor Ryan Kwanten, with Seth Larney (Tombiruo) as writer and director.
This looks pretty cool to me. I’m a big fan of Kodi Smit-McPhee for his portrayal of Nightcrawler in the X-Men movies, his performances in Slow West, Dolemite Is My Name, and the underrated film Alpha.
2067 hits theaters and VOD on October 2nd.
