Pedro Pascal (Narcos, Game of Thrones) plays a back-stabbing space bandit in the new official trailer for the space-western thriller "Prospect."

Seemingly inspired by the old west tales of the 19th-century Gold Rush era, the science-fiction film stars newcomer Sophie Thatcher as the young teenage daughter of a treasure-hunting space explorer (played by filmmaker/actor Jay Duplass, of "Transparent" fame).

While looking to strike it rich, Damon and Cee, a father-daughter team of space gold miners, travel to a toxic alien moon to search for rare and precious gems. After harvesting a large, priceless stone, Damon and Cee are suddenly ambushed by a treacherous space pirate (played by Pascal). Now left to defend herself, a desperate Cee is forced to partner up with Pascal's character, Ezra, whom she knows she can't trust, yet has no other choice but to accept a truce.

Winner of the Adam Yauch Hornblower Award (which is given to filmmakers with unique visions) at this year's SXSW Film Festival, "Prospect" marks the auspicious feature debut of Seattle-based filmmakers Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell. The movie is based on their 2014 short film of the same name.

"Prospect" will open theatrically in New York and Los Angeles on November 2nd before expanding nationwide on Nov. 9th.

The film will also premiere later digitally on the peer-to-peer blockchain platform SingularDTV in 2019.

synopsis:
A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They've secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon's toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest's other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father's greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.
