Watch the end of the world in the trailer for Abel Ferrera's 4:44 Last Day on Earth

3 years agoby:

Abel Ferrera has had an interesting career as a filmmaker, diving deep into the ugliness of the human condition with the majority of his films.  He's never had a major commercial hit, but it likely doesn't matter to him.  He's continued to churn out films since his 1979 debut DRILLER KILLER up to his most talked about BAD LIEUTENANT and now with 4:44 LAST DAY ON EARTH, starring Willem Dafoe and Shanyn Leigh (PUBLIC ENEMIES). 

The trailer is full of what you'd expect from a Ferrera film, which always seems to involve his main actors groveling or falling to the ground at some point.  The trend continues...

Here's the synopsis:

In a large apartment high above the city lives our couple. They’re in love. She’s a painter, he’s a successful actor. Just a normal afternoon - except that this isn’t a normal afternoon, for them or anyone else. Because tomorrow, at 4:44 am, give or take a few seconds, the world will come to an end far more rapidly than even the worst doomsayer could have imagined. The final meltdown will come not without warnings, but with no means of escape. There will be no survivors. As always, there are those who, as their last cigarette is being lit and the blindfold tightened, will still hope against hope for some kind of reprieve. For a miracle. Not our two lovers. They - like the majority of the Earth’s population - have accepted their fate: the world is going to end.

4:44 LAST DAY ON EARTH will have a limited release on March 23rd, 2012

Extra Tidbit: Abel Ferrera's King of New York, starring Christopher Walken is a great watch and for a great Willem Dafoe performance in the same vein, check out Light Sleeper, directed by Paul Schrader.

Hell yes! Abel Ferrera, Tom Waits, Willem Dafoe and the End of the World! Sounds like a blast.

If anything Ferrara's films are at least always different

I guess I'll check this one out. Nice nod to Light Sleeper also. In a history of great Dafoe performances, I still think Light Sleeper was his best.

Agree completely. All schmoes should give Light Sleeper a day in court. It's such a great hidden gem.
