THE DEAD LANDS: Maori Warriors Battle In First Teaser For Toa Fraser's Period Action Epic
A hotly anticipated title in these parts for quite some time [in more ways than one for me, given that I'm also a partner at XYZ Films, who are handling the film for international sales outside of Australia / New Zealand and have been dying to see how people will respond to it for ages] we are proud to present the film's first, super high octane, international teaser. Transmission will release The Dead Lands on New Zealand screens in October, with any luck the rest of the world will follow very closely behind.Hongi (James Rolleston) - a Maori chieftain's teenage son - must avenge his father's murder in order to bring peace and honour to the souls of his loved ones after his tribe is slaughtered through an act of treachery. Vastly outnumbered by a band of villains, led by Wirepa (Te Kohe Tuhaka), Hongi's only hope is to pass through the feared and forbidden Dead Lands and forge an uneasy alliance with the mysterious "Warrior" (Lawrence Makoare), a ruthless fighter who has ruled the area for years.
Take a look at the trailer below.
