John Goodman Prepares for Extraterrestrial War in ‘Captive State’

Captive State

Focus Features just shared with us the first look at John Goodman in Participant Media’s Captive State, which recently wrapped production in Chicago. Goodman’s performance in 10 Cloverfield Lane was Acadamy Award worthy and we’re excited to see him go to war with extraterrestrials in this new thriller.

“Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extraterrestrial force, Captive State explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents.”

Captive State is directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Gambler), who also co-wrote the original screenplay with Erica Beeney. The cast features John Goodman, Ashton Sanders (Moonlight), Jonathan Majors and Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Vera Farmiga. The film is produced by David Crockett and Rupert Wyatt and executive produced by Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King.

Focus Features will release the film in U.S. theaters on August 17, 2018.

    This sounds way too much like The Colony.

    Things John Goodman can do just grew to apparently kicking alien ass.

    No point seeing this piece of crap. No understanding of extra terrestrial civilizations. Better to watch “Unacknowledged” by Sirius Disclosure.

    Wow! This sounds like B or C level horror but that’s a hell of an assembly of talent. Keep me updated. I do like the idea of showing collaborators as alien invasion films typically focus only on united opposition. But if we were attacked by such overwhelmingly technologically advanced creatures, I’d have to assume at least some peoples or countries even would be collaborators.

    I’ll see pretty much anything with John Goodman in it.
