Director Evan Glodell and the Coatwolf team had a left-field hit at Sundance this year with Bellflower
. The story of a pair of apocalypse obsessed twenty-something men who spend their spare time building Mad Max inspired cars and homemade flamethrowers before a woman brings discord to the mix, Bellflower
had a polarizing effect on audiences and became one of the most talked about films of the festival, despite it's tiny production budget.
Bellflower follows two friends as they venture out into the world to
begin their adult lives. Literally all their free time is spent building
flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in hopes that a global
apocalypse will occur and clear the runway for their imaginary gang
"Mother Medusa". While waiting for the world to end, their call to
excitement comes unexpectedly when one of them meets a charismatic young
woman and falls hard in love. Quickly integrated into a new group of
friends, they set off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity
and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their
apocalyptic fantasies. Often life's simplest and most obvious truths are
the hardest to see, but once you've burned everything to the ground it
may be the only thing left standing.
The film has since been picked up for US distribution by Oscilliscope, who will be releasing it to theaters in August. And an impending release means it's time for a trailer. Check out their full theatrical trailer below.
