You could tell this isn’t a movie. You can watch a movie like a movie or a movie that has a lot of dialogue. Your brain would probably think, “If I were to start a movie, I’d probably have the screenplay for it.” I think there is a lot of dialogue in the movie, but you’d have to look at the movie to know if that’s the case.
In the end, if you don’t know the story of a movie, it’s not a movie. So you’ll just have to trust us and hope we have enough time to describe it.
The movie location is all in the making in the same way that all movies are. We are always looking at new spots to use as locations. Sometimes this involves us going through a checklist of locations we would like to see the movie in. We’re always looking for new things to use as locations, but we are still working on finding locations to use in the film.
In short, I think you can see why the first trailer should have been a little more explicit. Because you have a lot of people like us who are already familiar with the story of the movie, and you are often thinking of us as the protagonists and the characters, and we have to make sure our stories are as memorable as the characters are.
We’re going out on a limb to say that the movie should be set in the middle of the desert, but it might also be located somewhere on the coast. It’s a very interesting thought experiment for a project like ours, because we want it to be a place of extreme contrast.
The idea of a film location is a great one. There are many locations in the world that would be perfect for a film set in, say, a certain year. The deserts of the Middle East in the 21st Century are a perfect place for a desert war, and so are the swamps of the South Pacific, where the movie’s protagonist uses his powers to kill a shark. Or the deserts of the United States, where people have grown crops of marijuana. You get the idea.
In Deathloop, you’re fighting against eight Visionaries who are trying to control the island in one repeating day. That’s a great idea, too. The idea of a film set in a place that is just a few years in the future would be perfect. The idea of a film set in the 21st Century would be even better.
As it turns out, Deathloop is set in a time loop where a villain has come back to kill everyone and turn the island into a zombie wasteland. Which is kind of cool, because I love the idea of a movie set in the future. Thats what time-looping is for.
