Wild Eye Releasing has announced 2047: Virtual Revolution, their next big sci-fi spectacle, will be released next month. Thirty years into the future, it’s become trendy to escape into virtual reality worlds, but a gang of hackers sees this as an exploitable vulnerability. Our main character is a PI hired to track down the hackers. The overall feel of the flick may remind you of Blade Runner (by no coincidence, I’m sure) but there’s also a bit of The Matrix thrown in.
The year is 2047. Most of the world’s population live inside corporate-controlled virtual worlds and drift further out of touch with reality. Nash, a private investigator/ mercenary is hired to track down a group of hackers who are disrupting and terrorizing the virtual space in a bid to free human beings from their online prisons.
2047 was written and directed by Guy-Roger Duvert and it’s won over 40 awards through its travels around film festivals, including Best Film at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival Awards and Best Feature at Dragon Con. 2047 stars Jane Badler (V, V : The Final Battle, Mission : Impossible) and Mike Dupod (X-Men : Days of Future, Mission :Impossible – Ghost Protocol), and premieres on DVD January 16 from Wild Eye Releasing. Now for the trailer….
