Okay so maybe a post-apocalyptic love triangle isn’t the most unique storyline in the world (hello, entire plot of The Hunger Games).
And maaaaaaaybe the whole last-man-on-Earth thing has been done before (yes, there is a FOX show with that exact title). But that doesn’t mean Lionsgate‘s new film Z for Zachariah can’t kick those cliches up a notch!
The movie, based on the 1974 novel by Robert C. O’Brien, follows Margot Robbie as she lives off what appears to be the only sustainable valley in the world following some vague apocalypse we don’t really know much about.
But then she meets Chiwetel Ejiofor — who’s foolishly bathing in a radioactive river, silly man — and invites him to stay with her.
And just as things start to heat up between the two, here comes Chris Pine and his devilish good looks to throw a wrench in the middle of their love connection!
Sure, it seems predictable, but there’s this nervous tension that you just can’t shake.
Who’s good? Who’s bad? What exactly happened to the world? Find out by watching the full trailer (below)!
The film will hit theaters August 21, but until then, get your fix with the new poster (below)!
