Test Footage From Argentine Sci-Fi EL ETERNAUTA
Without a doubt the largest and most anticipated science fiction film ever produced in South America, there are rumors of dischord circling the film adaptation of Hector German Oesterheld's El Eternauta.  There is recent chatter that original director Lucrecia Martel - always something of an odd fit, really - is off the project but I don't expect that a change of directors will be enough to derail this alien invasion tale.  And, really, if Martel is gone the directors should be hopping on the next flight to Uruguay to sign Panic Attack director Federico Alvarez.

But I digress.  El Eternauta is a sprawling tale that begins with aliens sending a toxic snowfall onto humanity, a devastating attack followed up by their unleashing of bizarre, remotely mind controlled creatures to mop up the survivors.  Survivors, who, thanks to the damage wrought on the environment, can now only venture out doors in specially constructed bio-hazard suits.  And though the film is far from complete earlier this year a reel of test footage was prepared to demonstrate how it could be executed.  The effects are obviously not complete - the texturing and shading need work - but still are quite impressive for test work.  Check out the reel below.
