Night Raiders trailer: Taika Waititi-produced film gets November release

A trailer and poster have been released online to promote the fact that Samuel Goldwyn Films is giving writer/director Danis Goulet’s apocalyptic sci-fi thriller Night Raiders, which was executive produced by Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows, Jojo Rabbit), a theatrical, VOD, and digital release on November 12th. The trailer is embedded above and the poster can be seen below.

Starring Elle-Maija Tailfeathers (Blood Quantum), Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction), Brooklyn Letexier-Hart (Burden of Truth), Alex Tarrant (800 Words), Violet Nelson (The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open), and Gail Maurice (The Incredible 25th Year of Mitzi Bearclaw), Night Raiders is set in the year 2043, when 

a military occupation controls disenfranchised cities in North America and children are property of the state. The female-driven dystopian story follows a woman who joins an underground band of vigilantes to infiltrate a “children’s academy” and get her daughter back.

Paul Barkin, Tara Woodbury, Georgina Condor, Chelsea Winstanley, and Ainsley Gardiner produced Night Raiders, with Noah Segal, Adrian Love, Tim White, Lisa Meeches, and Kyle Irving serving as executive producers alongside Waititi.

Goulet has a couple decades of short films to her name, but Night Raiders marks her feature debut. I haven’t seen any of her short films, but if Waititi thought the material she was working with here was strong enough to put his name on it, that convinces me that this movie is going to be worth watching at some point. It looks like it could make for an interesting, involving viewing experience. If nothing else, it will help pass some time while I wait for Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder.

How does Night Raiders look to you? Is this something you’ll be watching in November? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
