WATCH: Proof-of-concept trailer for The Leviathan is simply stunning

March 17th, 2015 by Marc Comments


You need to watch this trailer… it’s awesome, jaw dropping and terrifying all at once. Quite beautiful and as scary as anything imaginable too. 

Meet The Leviathan.

The footage below is a ‘proof-of-concept’ teaser; what this means is that Academy Award-nominee Ruairí Robinson has pitched The Leviathan and he has created this teaser in the hope that it will help it be picked up by a studio. And we really, really want to see more of this.

“By the early 22nd century mankind had colonized many worlds. Faster than light travel was made possible by harvesting exotic matter from the eggs of the largest species mankind has ever seen. Those that take part in the hunt are mostly involuntary labor.”

Now, tell us this isn’t something you’d love to see…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
