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.
