Trailer Probe : Proxima

Trailer Probe watches sci-fi-ish movie trailers to help you waste your computer time wisely. Geek explosion content is reasons you will like it, dork disengagement level is why you won't.


Dork disengagement level: What I know about the movie plot I got from the synopsis on the movie's site. The trailer is light on story, it's standard Disengaged Guy wandering around in a world that confuses him, and clips of a mentor-figure / exposition guy.

In the clips, The sci-fi convention he goes to looks more like an academic conference. But maybe they just make it classy where the filmmakers are from.

Geek explosion content: Subtitles!

The movie is about an SF writer who announces that his work is fiction and and aliens really are coming. Naturally, hijinks ensue.

Warning: Female boobity.

It's about one second's worth. Enough to make me go "Hommina hommina -- " and then it's gone. It's not enough to really say it's NSFW, unless all of you gather around and pause it and stare at it for an hour.

This looks interesting, in the standard mind-filk movie manner like Donnie Darko. Is the guy crazy? The only satisfying resolution would be no, there really are aliens. Or he could just be crazy. Now where is that pause button . . .

Geek explosion level: 500,000 geek parts per million.
