Caribbean filmmaker Nick Attin upcoming film promises to boldly go where no other film from his country has gone before. The talented writer/director/producer has completed his latest film, the country’s first sci-fi thriller, Tomb.
Attin’s groundbreaking film centers on several nations around the world join together for the largest expedition into the furthest regions of deep space sometime in the near future. They share a common mission to discover a new way of life for all mankind. This mass galactic exodus is spearheaded by Proselyte Global, a world corporate entity responsible for the design of a special artificial intelligence on board each country’s starship.
Two Commanders, Nelson Obatala and Charles Mercer are two astronauts representing Trinidad and Tobago. They individually pilot two human inclusive deep space probes. During the long voyage what was expected to be six months of hyper sleep turns out to be much longer for Obatala. His vessel is ordered to change its course and respond to a distress beacon sent out by Mercer whose ship’s course had been mysteriously altered.
Now separated from his wife and baby daughter for much longer than anticipated, Obatala must risk the success of his mission and the family he loves to find and rescue his dear friend and fellow countryman. The love for his wife and child may help him cope with the loneliness of space; his training may help him survive even giant rogue asteroids. Nothing could prepare anyone for the awesome unknown of a wormhole! Only on the other side will he truly come face to face with destiny.”
Shot entirely in Trinidad between November 2014 and February 2015, Attin has been in post-production, raising funds along the way, to help complete it, calling it the Caribbean’s first science fiction thriller, which he says was inspired by his favorite directors – Stanley Kubrick, Terrence Malick, Ridley Scott and Alejandro Jodorowsky.
Tomb stars Kearn Samuel (who also starred in Attin’s last film, the action/thriller, Escape From Babylon), Gregory Pollonais, Conrad Parris, Jair Massiah, Rebecca Foster, Chris Smith and Amanda McIntyre.
