This trailer for Ridley Scott's Phoenix Forgotten will make you a believer

04.05.2017

I believe in a great many number of things, but so far, I have yet to witness any flying saucers and little green men in my time here on planet Earth. Do  I think that aliens exist? Sure, though I see them as being more of a parasitic nature than the sallow-skinned, almond-eyed beings that Hollywood has cooked up over the years.

Regardless of what I think, it doesn't change the fact that Ridley Scott has yet another alien-oriented film on the way by the name of PHOENIX FORGOTTEN, a found-footage-style thriller that reminds me an awful lot of the 1999 supernatural sensation THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.

See for yourself by watching the trailer posted below:

See what I mean? That's not to say that the film won't do it's own thing, and it certainly appears to be freaky enough to pique my interest. Here's the fim's official synopsis: Three teens go into the desert shortly after a bizarre incident, hoping to document the strange events occurring in their town. They disappeared that night and were never seen again. Now, on the twentieth anniversary of their disappearance, unseen footage has finally been discovered, chronicling the final hours of their fateful expedition. For the first time ever, the truth will be revealed...

Sounds pretty cool, right? PHOENIX FORGOTTEN is produced by Ridley Scott, directed Justin Barber, written by T.S. Nowlin, and stars Matt Biedel, Ana Dela Cruz and Florence Hartigan.

PHOENIX FORGOTTEN looks to abduct audience members beginning on April 21, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: During the 1600s, Puritans in New England spotted more than just witches flying through the skies. Hundreds of years before Area 51 and Project Blue Book, Massachusetts Bay Colony founder John Winthrop detailed instances of unidentified flying objects in the heavens above seventeenth-century Boston in the first recorded UFO sightings in America.

It looks like they were able to copy everything about the Blair Witch Project, right down to the abandoned cabin in the middle of nowhere.

What an incredibly unoriginal movie...

Blair Witch Project

I know that Hollywood is running out of ideas, but this trailer made the movie look completely and absolutely unoriginal, to the point that it looks like a copy of The Blair Witch Project. It actually made me want to go watch that one again.

Trailer starts off like a bad saucer documentary but then turns into a film that hopes no one has seen the original Blair Witch.

Kind of click baity

And maybe that is unintentional, but you should mention in the title that Scott is just producing and not directing (i.e. he probably had little no involvement whatsoever in the film and the studio convinced him to lend his name in order to get easy publicity).
