David, I am not so negative based on the little we got from the trailer. It may not matter, but this is not a Hollywood movie. It was made in Australia.

Without looking into it. Is say it was bankrolled from America though. Australia doesn't really produce genre films, well a few exceptions of course.
In the right hands the story could make a great film. Although unless you spelled it out very clearly it could be confusing and by spelling it out it could be insulting.
In two minds. I'll go in with an open mind but won't expect too much.

The writers/directors/producers, the Spierig brothers, were born in Germany but have lived in Australia since they were four. This is only their third film though the previous two were fairly successful. The only American in the production is Ethan Hawke. It was financed by Screen Australia. Sony is distributing the film but they did not pick it up until after it was completed. From what I can read, it is pretty much an Australian film, definitely not "Hollywood." However, I agree about going in with low expectations, especially to see how much of a "Heinlein" movie it is.

Oh thanks that's interesting. I wish I knew. I have a degree on film an have worked in the industry a little. Made a feature in America in 2001. I would have volunteered to be involved in a Heinlein feature :)

The film adaptation of "-All You Zombies-", Predestination, had a premiere at the SXSW film festival. Here are a couple of interviews with the writers/directors that were done there:

Not sure if any of you have seen this yet; My wife and I went to see it a few weeks ago.
I thought it a competent adaptation. It stuck to the story - although I'll admit I haven't read it in a while and there may have been liberties taken - but the essential plot elements appear to be intact.
