The sci-fi thriller A Million Days is set to premiere at Cannes Film Festival, where it is expected to sell to a studio. The film stars Simon Merrells (The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power) and Hermione Corfield (We Hunt Together). The film was directed by Mitch Jenkins (The Show), and it also stars Kemi-Bo Jacobs (London Has Fallen) and Darrell D’Silva (Wrath of Man).
Here’s the official description:
“The year is 2041 and the next step in the future of humankind is imminent. After decades of training and research, the mission to create the first lunar colony is about to launch with Anderson as lead astronaut. Jay, an AI purpose built for the mission, has simulated every possible outcome for the expedition. Tensions arise when the chilling motives of Jay become apparent, sewing the seeds of distrust between Anderson and the group that had gathered to quietly celebrate the launch. As the night descends into chaos, the group’s faith in one another and their mission begins to crack, with the knowledge that the decisions they make before sunrise will change humanity forever.”
Signature Entertainment plans to release A Million Days in the U.K. and Ireland in 2023. Keep an eye out for a US release date and trailer once the film gets kicked off at Cannes.
