Shane Abbess’ Gabriel Trailer and Poster

Andy Whitfield in Gabriel (2007) Movie Image

A poster for the Australian fantasy/action film “Gabriel” has popped up online. I’ve never heard of the film, but it sure looks like something I could get into.Written and directed by Shane Abbess, the film stars Andy Whitfield as an arc angel. The poster (to your left, bigger version below) seems to be hinting at an “Underworld” connection, and the trailer (also below) certainly looks like it’s taking its visual cues from Len Wiseman’s movie. Very action-packed and creature-oriented. If nothing else, the film’s Australian roots should make it seem slightly different, even if the whole thing does look very familiar.

GABRIEL tells the story of an Arc Angel who fights to bring light back to purgatory – a place where darkness rules – and save the souls of the city’s inhabitants.

Starring Andy Whitfield, Dwaine Stevenson, Samantha Noble and Erika Heynatz, and written and directed by Shane Abbess.

Gabriel falls November 29, 2007 in Australia, but American audiences will have to wait a whopping year and change, on December 31, 2008, to catch Gabriel’s fight.

Here’s the trailer:

    I am an american, and I have to say that I was truly impressed with this film. I was always hoping for a film like this one, I’d thought The Covenant back in 06′ was going to be like this film but i was sadly mistaken. So thank you Austrailia for a very awesome, and entertaining film.

    Forgot to say my favorite part was Gabriel’s fight with Mulloch. Also, any ideas for a sequel? It looked like at the end Gabriel fell from grace to stay with Jade right, why not call the next one Nathaniel and have him raise Jade and Gabriel back up to angelic status?

    Gabriel did not die at the end. He “fell” and gave up his arc angel status to become human and remain in purgatory to 1.stay with Jade and 2. find how all of the corruption came about. Similar to when Nicolas Cage throws himself off of a builing in City of Angels to become human and be with Meg Ryan.
