BIOSPHERE Trailer: Sterling K. Brown & Mark Duplass Are the Last Men on Earth in Buddy Comedy
Imagine having to survive the apocalypse with your best friend. That seems to be the case for Sterling K. Brown and Mark Duplass in Biosphere.
The duo star as lifelong pals who try to find ways to survive in their custom biosphere at the end of the world. It appears to be in the mold of other post-apocalyptic indie comedies such as Seeking a Friend at the End of the World and Save Yourselves! It is the feature directorial debut of producer and writer Mel Eslyn, who co-wrote the film with Duplass. She also is president of Duplass Brothers Productions and produced many of their films, such as The One I Love, Outside In, and Language Lessons. She also wrote and directed episodes for HBO’s Room 104. It had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and will soon have its New York premiere at Rooftop Films. Eslyn produces alongside Zackary Drucker, Maddie Buis, and Shuli Harel. IFC Films has released a new official trailer ahead of its release this July.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Billy (Mark Duplass) and Ray (Sterling K. Brown) are lifelong best friends, brothers from another mother – and the last two men on earth. Their survival is largely due to Ray, a brilliant scientist who designed a domed structure with all the systems necessary to sustain life on a planet that could no longer support it. Their custom biosphere is outfitted with basic necessities and creature comforts that make it possible to retain a sense of what life used to be like. A hydroponic garden provides fresh vegetables and a carefully managed fishpond supplies essential protein. Recently, however, fish have begun dying at an alarming rate. With a mere three fish remaining, Billy and Ray face an ominous future. But life may yet find a way.
