In the new, Cannes Festival-screened science fiction film Before We Vanish, three aliens travel to Earth on a reconnaissance mission in preparation for a mass invasion. Having taken possession of human bodies, the visitors rob the hosts of their essence, leaving only hollow shells, which are all but unrecognizable to their loved ones. The aliens also have serious powers, as demonstrated in a just-released clip from the film.
Before We Vanish stars Masami Nagasawa (Godzilla: Final Wars), Ryuhei Matsuda (The Raid 2), Mahiro Takasugi, Yuri Tsunematsu, and Hiroki Hasegawa (Shin Godzilla). The film is directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, whose previous credits include 2001’s very creepy tale of internet ghosts, Pulse.
