A vast segment of the general public and the media might consider drones to be dangerous, privacy-invading-little-buggers, but any drone owner knows that they are what their operator makes of them.
A drone can’t be blamed for flying onto the Japanese Prime Minister’s roof or over the White House fence. It won’t randomly turn on its camera and spy on you or follow you around the house when you’re not paying attention. It probably won’t kill your dog, either. Then again, maybe your drone has been doing these things all along and you just haven’t noticed it yet. (OK, you’d probably notice the dead dog, but the rest…)
“Don’t you hate it when drones become sentient?,” asked Jordan Rubin, the director, producer and one of the writers behind this awesome movie trailer when he shared it on Facebook.
Watch the trailer below; just make sure your drone isn’t watching it with you.
This should be obvious, but be warned: just like in any other movie about homicidal drones, there’s a bit of blood and violence.
“It’s like The Terminator, with wings,” says the review by Steve Kimbrough of the Mamaroneck Post, but despite probably being completely fictional Steve is spot on.
Brilliantly spoofing terror movies, ‘The Drone’ could be a blockbuster among quadcopter aficionados. Sadly, however, it is said to be a fake trailer and it’s not likely we will be seeing the killer drone on cinema screens anytime soon.
Then again, Jordan is the filmmaker behind ‘Zombeavers’ which, believe it or not, is a real movie. It’s OK, I know you don’t believe it; I didn’t either until I looked it up. It even has Rex Linn playing in it! I guess the good days of CSI: Miami and Django Unchained are behind him…
Anyway, my point is that Jordan made a movie about a swamp infested with zombie-beavers, so a movie about a demonic drone isn’t so farfetched.
You STILL don’t believe me that ‘Zombeavers’ is real? Watch the trailer below and visit Jordan’s IMDB page.
You’re going to take the battery out of your drone now, aren’t you? Don’t bother, it won’t help.
