Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonisation, Sy (Kellan Lutz; The Twilight Saga, The Expendables 3), escapes a brutal prison where mysterious experiments have been taking place under the watch of a savage warden (Temuera Morrison; Star Wars Episodes 2 & 3, Once Were Warriors). After orchestrating an escape, Sy meets Kane (Daniel MacPherson, The Shannara Chronicles), a lieutenant working for an off-world military contractor - EXOR, who have set in motion a plan to wipe out all life from the face of the planet in an attempt to cover up their crimes - when their terrifying “experiments” escape.
Now, the unlikely pair must work together to rescue Kane’s young daughter, Indi (Teagan Croft; Home and Away), and reach safety before it’s too late. Teaming up with a pair of rough-and-ready outlaws, Gyp (Isabel Lucas; Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) and Bill (Luke Ford; The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor), it’s a race against time for the group as they clash with EXOR in an attempt to escape while battling the savage creatures that roam the barren planet.
From writer-director Shane Abbess (Infini; Gabriel), Origin Wars is a brand new science-fiction adventure set in a fantastically realised, and wholly original, universe. Featuring intense aerial dog-fights, hard-hitting action, impressive practical effects and an extraordinary cast, Origin Wars offers a thrilling experience in sci-fi adventure.
