What if machine invaders have ravaged their way across Europe, North America, and China? What if you’re in Africa with a gun… and amnesia? As we see in this exclusive clip from the new alien thriller Revolt, it’s best if you think on your feet — at running speed.

In it, the protagonist, played by Lee Pace (Lord of the Rings, the cruelly canceled-too-soon Pushing Daisies) learns that these invaders are hunting humans. He believes they must have some kind of weakness. And he’s going to find it.

But we say "protagonist" for a reason. According to the official synopsis, Pace’s character may not actually be a hero:

Set in the war-ravaged African countryside, an American soldier and a French foreign aid worker team up to survive the alien onslaught. As they journey through the battlefield in search of refuge, their bond will be tested when the soldier discovers his true identity.


Revolt, which was recently released on DIRECTV, will screen in theaters beginning Nov. 17. Directed by Joe Miale, Revolt also stars Bérénice Marlohe, Jason Flemyng…and a host of alien machines that want you dead. Happy watching!
