A refugee family from Earth clings to hope for a brighter life on a lonely homestead near the Martian frontier. However, when strangers appear in the surrounding hills and attempt to chase them away, Remmy (Brooklynn Prince, THE FLORIDA PROJECT) is confronted with the desperate reality that her mother (Sofia Boutella, THE MUMMY) and father (Jonny Lee Miller, TRAINSPOTTING) have worked so hard to keep hidden from her. SETTLERS is an eye-catching sci-fi thriller with elements of the classic western that was shot on location in the remote desert area of Vioolsdift in South Africa’s Northern Cape. SETTLERS, the feature film debut of London-based filmmaker Wyatt Rockefeller, is one of the NYU Producti.
Look, I’m a sucker for space horror (even terrible, cheesy space horror), so when it appears that a film has done a good job with the concept? It gets even better! This is obviously only a trailer, but it has really sparked my curiosity. Meanwhile, Settlers, directed by Wyatt Rockefeller and starring Sofia Boutella, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Brooklynn Prince, Nell Tiger Free, and Jonny Lee Miller, will be released in select cinemas and on demand on Friday, July 23rd, 2021, courtesy of IFC Midnight!
