Nicolas Cage is at it again! The king of goofy DTV adventure movies is going post-apocalyptic (again) in his latest poorly CGI’ed endeavor, The Humanity Bureau. Cage stars a Noah Cross, a caseworker in a ravaged America, where climate changed has ravaged the world’s resources. In an attempt to turn around the dire economic recession, the government institutes an agency that exiles the citizens deemed unproductive to a colony known as “New Eden”. If you’ve ever read a book or seen a movie, you probably guessed that that’s some bullshit, and it’s only a matter of time before Cross realizes he’s been a handyman in the unjust disposal of innocents and turns his life upside down to save the life of a single mother and her son, and expose the truths of The Humanity Bureau in the process.
Nicolas Cage? Check. Post-apocalypse? Check. Weird CGI photo of Donald Trump for added timeliness? Check? Yep! This thing looks ridiculous, and I’m in! Cage has been on a bit of a roll lately with Mom and Dad and Mandy, but this one looks like some good old fashioned Cage-ian cheese.
Written by Dave Schultz and directed by Rob W. King, The Humanity Bureau also stars Sarah Lind, Hugh Dillon and Jakob Davies, and arrives in theaters and On Demand on April 6. Watch the full insanity unfold in the trailer below.
Heres’ the official synopsis for The Humanity Bureau:
In the near future climate change has wreaked havoc in parts of the American Midwest. In its attempt to take hold of an economic recession, a government agency called the Humanity Bureau exiles members of society deemed unproductive and banishes them to a colony known as New Eden.
An ambitious and impartial caseworker NOAH KROSS (Nicolas Cage) investigates a case appealed by a single mother RACHEL WELLER (Sarah Lind) and her son LUCAS (Jakob Davies). Knowing the unjust fate of the innocent boy and against the wishes of his superior ADAM WESTINGHOUSE (Hugh Dillon), Kross sets off to save the lives of the mother and child and to expose the truth about the Humanity Bureau’s secrets once and for all.
