With movies like The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner and The Divergent Series leading the charge of dystopian sci-fi tales featuring pretty young people having to fight for their very survival in games of some sort, it’s not surprising that we get yet another movie offering more of the same.
But where we got various degrees of quality with the above-mentioned films, this one looks downright cheap -- and not even in an “it’s-so-bad-it’s-good” type of way. Heck, even the first poster is painfully bad, although the second one is a bit better, even if super generic. But eh, I could be wrong, and you might even kinda sorta enjoy it.
Starring Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) in the role of a President Snow wannabe, Michelle Ryan (Jekyll, Bionic Woman), Skin (lead singer of U.K. band Skunk Anansie), Jon Kortajarena (A Single Man), Gale Harold (Queer as Folk), Leo Howard (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon movies), the movie is directed by Italian filmmaker Francesco Cinquemani. Here’s the official synopsis:
In the year 2154, a group of young men and women awake in a dark claustrophobic maze. They don’t remember who they are or how they got stuck in the Black Labyrinth of ANDRON. The group must learn to decipher codes, understand the signals and beat the tests in this mysterious and bizarre place. Out of necessity they struggle to form a bond to survive, while the outside world watches and wagers on their fate.
Have a look:
What do you think? Andron will open in movie theaters on June 3.
