Anomaly is an unusual Christmas tale, set in the late 60’s, which tells the story of a group of people connected by the same astronomical event: A frightening meteor that will enter and exit the atmosphere. It is weird and sad and hopeful and just really interesting to watch.
Here's a strange Christmas film—weird, sad, and hopeful all at the same time. According to its creators, Anomaly is 'a retelling of the traditional Christmas Nativity which explores, through a modern-day lens, the events of two-thousand years ago, set against the space-race canvas of the 1960s.'
We had pretty high hopes for The Anomaly when we learned that Noel Clarke (Doctor Who) was directing and starring in a film about brain-hacking, co-starring The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder. But the trailer looks seriously kick-ass, and there's a neat spin on the "ticking clock" idea.
Universes are colliding. Noel Clarke, who played Mickey on Doctor Who (and a small role in Star Trek into Darkness), is directing a science fiction film called The Anomaly. Co-starring Ian Somerhalder from Vampire Diaries.
Wrap your weekend up with a great little short with a twist that will teach as all a little bit more about patience, kindness, and sheep herding. Watch it now!
