The new “Rebel Moon” trailer shows just how widespread the influence of the Imperium is and how much of a challenge it will be to stop it. Kora leaves her dark past behind to start a revolution against her former masters, ultimately assembling a skilled team of warriors to fight for revolution — and yes, a remix of the iconic song “Children of the Revolution” is playing in the background amidst laser-gun-blasts. Every member of the crew brings a different skill set to the table. From ace pilot Kai (Hunnam) and beast master Tarak (Nair) to the cybernetic swordswoman Nemesis (Bae), there’s a lot of sci-fi variety and even a bit of mythological fantasy.
While “Star Wars” is an obvious major influence for the director here, there’s also lots of Greco-Roman influence, Western imagery, and high fantasy — making Snyder’s film nothing less than an ambitious and intriguing epic. Sure, the movie looks like a chaotic ride filled with potential and we can’t wait to see if it pays off.
“Rebel Moon” releases in theaters on December 15 and on Netflix on December 22, 2023.
