Wicked Releases Sam Hain's Teaser to 'Horizon'
LOS ANGELES — Wicked Pictures has released the high-definition trailer to Sam Hain’s science fiction film “Horizon.”
The cast includes Jessica Drake, Kaylani Lei, Alektra Blue, Kimberly Kane, Bobbi Starr, Misty Stone, Aiden Starr, Rocco Reed, Bill Bailey, Tony DeSergio, Xander Corvus and Danny Mountain.
Hain said he couldn't be more thrilled with the cast he assembled, and he enjoyed the challenge of photographing them with some truly cutting-edge technology.
"We shot the entire movie with the new Red Epic camera, the same camera being used on Ridley Scott's “Prometheus” and Peter Jackson's “The Hobbit,” Hain said.
“But because of the lengthy post-production schedules of those two films, we expect to be the first movie of this kind, in either the mainstream or adult worlds, to be released."
“Horizon” unfolds in the year 2085 as a civilization of extraterrestrial origin invades Earth. Of the planet's 9 billion inhabitants, approximately one third have been killed and nearly 2 billion more have been evacuated to a military base on Mercury.
Of the 4 billion humans who remain on Earth, none are expected to survive the next 48 hours.
"The cast and crew were trying to accomplish something that has not been done before; to create an adult film that looks and feels like a mainstream film,” Hain said.
“I believe we accomplished our goal. I'm very proud of the fact that our crew is technically proficient enough to use the most advanced technologies currently available to filmmakers, such as the Red Epic system. Because of this, we have created a film that looks unlike any adult film ever produced."
To create the movie's many spectacular special effects sequences, Hain and his crew augmented the computer-generated effects and green screen imagery with large scale modeling work.
