“If it’s protecting the Earth, why is it coming straight at us?” This looks cool! Samuel Goldwyn Films has revealed an official US trailer for a French adventure movie titled Last Journey of Paul WR, which originally premiered back in 2020. This is finally getting a US release after two years of waiting. This looks like an epic sci-fi thriller, and the title is an extension of the French version which is just The Last Journey. The red moon threatens our existence on earth. Our only hope is the enigmatic Paul WR, the most talented astronaut of its generation. But a few hours before the start of the Great mission, Paul disappeared. There’s all kinds of strange and interesting things going on in this, almost like a dusty, post-apocalyptic Jean-Pierre Jeunet meets Luc Besson kind of film. The cast includes Hugo Becker as Paul WR, with Jean Reno, Paul Hamy& Lya Oussadit-Lessert. It also won Best Film at the Sitges Film Festival – looks quite good.
Here’s the official US trailer (+ poster) for Romain Quirot’s Last Journey of Paul WRfrom YouTube:
