Ah yes, the mockbuster – a tried and true fact of life. If a big budget, sure hit flick is on the horizon that you can rest assured – someone is making a “similar but, not to similar” version for about 1/10th the cost. With that in mind – I’ve got all the info you need on a little something titled The Dawnseeker – have a look at the trailer.
From the press release: Premiering September 4 On Demand from Uncork’d Entertainment, Justin Price’s explosive new sci-fi horror actioner pits five mercenaries against a dangerous alien creature. 2245, the Earth’s sun has dwindled and no longer provides the energy needed to sustain human life. Five hired mercenaries travel to an uncharted planet to collect a rare mineral known as stardust to replenish the dying star. After their spaceship crashes on the alien planet, they are stalked and hunted by a creature far more advanced than anything they have ever encountered before. Starring Franziska Schissler, Alexander Kane, Jason Skeen and Khu, The Dawnseeker marks the fifth feature film from director Justin Price (Alien : Reign of Man).
