Daily Trailer / Still Life: Hell Gets DVD Release Date
The word ‘hell’ in German means ‘bright’, and since Hell is a German film, it wins the award for the most imaginative title picked to suit an international audience. The film is about a post-apocalyptic future in which ‘the sun has turned the entire world into a baked and barren wasteland’ and follows a group of survivors as they desperately search for a rumoured place where water can still be found. It’s produced by Roland Emmerich, who has been giving us CGI-riddled visions of the end of the world as a director since the ’90s (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012), however the trailer below gives evidence of a much more refined affair, relying on sci-fi thriller techniques rather than grand scenes of destruction.
Directed by relative unknown Tim Fehlbaum, Hell has been well-received by critics in Germany, winning awards for its score and editing and being nominated for 5 German Film Critics Awards, including Best Film. The film will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 2nd July 2012. Some newly released stills from the film can be found below.
