First Photo: Rupert Wyatt’s “Captive State”

Focus Features has premiered the first photo from “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “The Gambler” director Rupert Wyatt’s new film “Captive State” at Participant Media.

John Goodman, Vera Farmiga, Ashton Sanders and Jonathan Majors lead the cast of the film which is set in a Chicago neighbourhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force.

The story explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents. Wyatt and Erica Beeney co-wrote the script and the film is currently targeting an August 17th 2018 release.
