UNITED STATES: Zack Snyder is back with his Netflix sci-fi film “Rebel Moon” after giving big hits such as Justice League Snyder Cut and Army of the Dead in 2021.
Rebel Moons production begins
Snyder has been the most in-demand director with a very active fan base since the release of Justice League (2017). The wait is over for Snyder fans, as the filmmaker revealed a few photos from his new film “Rebel Moon” on social media to commemorate the start of production.
We get a good look at Djimon Hounsou as General Titus in the published photos, with his face covered in dust and scars in a black and white perspective, all armored up. Snyder also posted shots of the behind-the-scenes of specific spaceships on his social media account. The spacecraft images showcase the interior and outside of what appears to be a cargo room for a spacecraft in the film. Earlier, he shared a concept art where we can see the armor-packed warrior engaged with guns.
Rebel Moon is a darker version of Star Wars with Seven Samurai style
Zack Snyder proposed a dark Star Wars feature nearly a decade ago, but the proposal was never approved. Following the success of Snyder’s last film Army of the Dead, Netflix agreed to work with him again on a darker sci-fi story, and the result is finally here.
Rebel Moon is a sci-fi fantasy influenced by Star Wars and Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. The central plot of this sci-fi story is around a galactic colony that gathers a band of warriors from all around the galaxy to fight the tyrannical Belisarius.
Along with Djimon Hounsou as General Titus and Rupert Friend as Belisarius, the film’s ensemble cast also features Charlie Hunnam, Sofia Boutella, Jena Malone, Corey Stoll, Michiel Huisman, Cary Elwes, Doona Bae, and Ray Fisher. Snyder has collaborated on the screenplay alongside Shay Hatten, most known for his work on John Wick Chapter 3-Parabellum, and Kurt Johnstad. Besides all the film stats, Snyder will join as the director.
