With a killer cast and epic visuals, upcoming Aussie sci-fi flick Occupation: Rainfall is shaping up to be a huge event, and Supanova has the pleasure of sharing an exclusive look at the forthcoming release.
Written and directed by Luke Sparke and filmed on the Gold Coast, the follow-up to 2018’s Occupation features a star-studded list of pop culture favourites, including Jason Isaacs, Daniel Gillies, Ken Jeong and more, and is scheduled to premiere next month during Monster Fest.
Check out the exclusive teaser trailer below.
We caught up with Sparke for more insight into what to expect from Occupation: Rainfall.
What can fans expect from the new film?
They can expect an exciting new story about how people can come together or tear each other apart when faced with great adversity, all told on a sweeping epic canvas of action-packed battles, chases, sword fights and monster encounters!
How would you compare it to 2018’s ‘Occupation’?
Apples and oranges. Occupation‘s production started out small and grew as we went. I knew it might only have a limited budget, but it still came out looking bigger than I had ever imagined. With Rainfall, I went straight into script-writing with the intention of telling a much bigger story. Every day we have pushed our boundaries and tested new ideas to come up with the biggest and best film we can.
What was it like working with such a star-studded cast?
I’m a big fan of ensemble cast films. For an Australian director, working with such a brilliant international cast was a dream come true. Everyone brings so much to the table for their characters. It’s a great coup for the Australian industry when we can attract a cast like this, and great for the local crew to have an opportunity to work with these internationally acclaimed talents.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I’m so excited to share the teaser trailer with the fans. This literally is a tease. From an amazing music score to Dolby Atmos sound mixing – there is so much more behind the curtain still to come!
Occupation: Rainfall will premiere at Monster Fest 2020 on Friday, 30 October in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.
