Scott Stewart’s “Legion” went into Comic-Con ’09 as a mostly unnoticed film, but I think it came out getting a little bit more attention and respect. Deservedly so, in my opinion, if you’re into the genre. This looks like a classic last stand in a haunted house movie, except the haunted house is a diner in the middle of nowhere, and the monsters are warmongering angels. The filmmakers called it “Angels with Machine Guns” and I think you’ll agree, they weren’t kidding. Check out the 5-minute Red Band trailer for “Legion” that was shown at this year’s Comic-Con below.
After a terrifying biblical apocalypse descends upon the world, a group of strangers stranded in a remote truck stop diner in the Southwest unwittingly become humanity’s last line of defense when they discover the diner’s young waitress is pregnant with the messiah.
Starring Dennis Quaid, Paul Bettany, Kevin Durand, Doug Jones, Kate Walsh, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Adrianne Palicki, Willa Holland, and Charles S. Dutton. Scott Stewart directs.
