Focus Features has revealed the first photo from their science-fiction/horror film, Captive State. The new film stars John Goodman and tells the story of several people as they navigate their lives ten years into an alien occupation of Earth. While some of the humans are rebels and dissidents, some, possibly Goodman, are collaborators.

Captive State is directed by Rupert Wyatt (The GamblerRise of the Planet of the Apes). Wyatt co-wrote the screenplay with Erica Beeney, Wyatt’s wife.

The film will also star Ashton Sanders (Moonlight), Vera Famiga (The Departed), Jonathan Majors (When We Rise), Kevin Dunn (Transformers), and rapper Machine Gun Kelly.

David Crockett produced Captive State alongside Wyatt. The film was executive produced by Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King.

The film recently wrapped filming in Chicago, where the fictionalized occupation takes place. While filming, Machine Gun Kelly, who has acted in several films before, sustained a fairly serious chest injury. As a result, the rapper had to cancel three shows.

Captive State is expected to be released on August 17, 2018.
