Aussie fans of the sci-fi genre have a new movie to look forward to in May. The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One revealed its new trailer recently as well as inviting fans to an early screening followed by a Q & A with some of the stars.
The official synopsis for The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One is below.
“Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonisation, Sy (Kellan Lutz), a mysterious drifter, meets Kane (Daniel MacPherson), a lieutenant working for an off-world military contractor, EXOR. The unlikely pair must work together to rescue Kane’s young daughter (Teagan Croft) and reach safety amid an impending global crisis which was brought on by EXOR itself. Teaming up with a pair of renegades (Luke Ford and Isabel Lucas), Kane and Sy clash with EXOR in an attempt to escape while battling the savage creatures that roam the barren planet. The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One also stars Rachel Griffiths and Temuera Morrison, The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One is an adrenaline-fueled sci fi adventure.”

Gizmodo described The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One as a mash up of “Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Mad Max, District 9, and Quentin Tarantino” after they saw an early screening of it at last year’s Fantastic Fest.
As expressed in the title, this movie is considered to be the first volume in this new universe. While there is no official news yet in regard to whether this is the first in a continuing chain of movies in this new universe, it seems likely this is the production team’s hope for the future. However, they will have to wait until after the movie airs to find out just how much the audience enjoyed this new movie and whether there is a future for subsequent sequels.
If you live in Australia and this sounds like the kind of science fiction you like, an opportunity has arisen for sci-fi fans to check out a preview screening prior to the May 18 release date. This early screening will be followed by an Q & A with some of the movie’s stars.
