We're used to seeing dark, depressing visions of the world after the collapse of civilization. But few recent post-apocalyptic visions have been as disturbing, and as beautifully filmed, as the new movie Young Ones, in select theaters and on demand today. Very minor spoilers ahead…
The more we see of the BigDog robot-starring dystopian Western film Young Ones, the more excited we get. The cast is bananas, featuring Michael Shannon, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult. And the look is so bleak, but also beautiful. Behold the madness.
Jake Paltrow — yes, the brother of Gwyneth Paltrow — has written and directed this dystopian flick set in a future where water is extremely scarce. Sure, we've seen a lot of parched world stories, but there's something about this bit of preview art that's fairly striking. Plus, is that Big Dog?
