An escaped convict and a military contractor make an unlikely twosome in the newly released trailer for the Australian-produced sci-fi action throwback "The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One."
The futuristic film, which hails from the filmmakers behind 2015's cult sci-fi thriller "Infini," stars Australian actor Daniel MacPherson (TV's The Shannara Chronicles, Infini) as a top lieutenant of a dubious intergalactic corporation who, when trying to rescue his young stranded daughter from a newly quarantined zone, is left with no other choice but to team up with a mysterious fugitive (played by Kellan Lutz, from "The Expendables 3" and "The Twilight Saga").
Directed by Aussie sci-fi filmmaker Shane Abbess from a script he co-wrote with his "Infini" collaborator, writer-composer-musician Brian Cachia, the cast also includes Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) and Luke Ford (Animal Kingdom) with appearances by Rachel Griffiths (Hacksaw Ridge) and Temuera Morrison (aka Jango Fett from the "Star Wars" prequels).
"The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One" doesn't have an official U.S. release date, but is expected to make its Australian premiere later this month, before officially opening in Australian theaters on May 18th.
Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonization, Sy (Kellan Lutz), a mysterious drifter, meets Kane (Daniel MacPherson), a lieutenant working for an off-world military contractor, EXOR.
The unlikely pair must work together to rescue Kane’s young daughter (Teagan Croft) and reach safety amid an impending global crisis which was brought on by EXOR itself. Teaming up with a pair of renegades (Luke Ford and Isabel Lucas), Kane and Sy clash with EXOR in an attempt to escape while battling the savage creatures that roam the barren planet.
