After nearly three years (maybe even four?), Paramount Vantage is finally prepping to release Carriers, their post-apocalyptic disease thriller starring Chris Pine, who comes right off the success of Star Trek as Captain Kirk. Directed by Àlex Pastor and David Pastor, he stars alongside Sundance award winner Lou Taylor Pucci, Piper Perabo and Emily VanCamp in the film that follows four friends fleeing a viral pandemic that soon learn they are more dangerous than any virus. Check out the first one sheet below.
A deadly virus has spread across the globe. Contagion is everywhere, no one is safe and no one can be trusted. Four young attractive people race through the back roads of the American West to the pounding beat of a vacation soundtrack. Their aim is to retreat to secluded utopian beach in the Gulf of Mexico, where they could peacefully wait out the pandemic and survive the apocalyptic disease. CARRIERS follow their getaway through a surreal and dangerous world where laws and rules no longer apply. Their plans take a grim turn when their car breaks down on an isolated road starting a chain of events that will seal the fate of each of them in an inexorable and horrifying voyage of hell through a western landscape populated by only the hideous dead or the twisted living. Their desperate retreat south turns into a deadly battle against infected children, homicidal doctors, crazed survivalists, rabid dogs, and, finally each other. The virus is the least of their problems as horrible choices must be made in the face of lost humanity.
