Leviathan – Trailer

I was reading Deadline: Hollywood earlier today when I noticed that Ruairi Robinson has landed a development deal based upon the video for his short, Leviathan.

If you’ve been reading this blog, you’ll recall that I featured Robinson’s The Silent City, a few years ago.  I’ve reposted it below.

The thing is, Ruairi Robinson does great trailers, but his feature work tends to be a bit lacking.  For instance, his last movie, The Last Days On Mars (currently on Netflix) got a 20% on Rottentomatoes.com, though I thought that it deserved better.

Another interesting thing is that the story reminded me of quite a few others, such Melville’s Moby Dick, The Stars, Mine Enemy! by Roy Thomas from The Rampaging Hulk and Abraxas and the Earthman by Rick Vetch, from Marvel’s Epic Illustrated.

The Rampaging Hulk

Abraxas

The latter two revolving around a hunt for creatures that can best be called ‘space whales.’
