Not Your Typical Alien Invasion: Watch The ‘Captive State’ Trailer

by Tito W. James

In a world where humans have faced a decade of alien occupation, a group of resistance fighters decide to strike back at any cost.

Alien invasion films aren’t a new concept, they date back to the cold war and fear of a Communist invasion. What makes Captive State stand out is the gritty realism of the alien occupation. The government is complying with the takeover because the aliens provide peace and security to humanity. The humans who rebel against the aliens have striking similarities to homegrown terrorists. With trust in institutions in decline and radical groups on the rise, Captive State has captured the current cultural climate and returned the alien invasion genre to its allegorical roots.

Look for Captive State in theaters March 14th.
