Post-apocalyptic John Malkovich is the order of the day in the trailer for upcoming post-civilisation action thriller The Survivalist.

If civilisation really did crumble due to a viral outbreak, we think there’s a pretty good chance that when the dust settled, with his ability to ooze intimidation and charm in equal measure, the acclaimed actor John Malkovich would likely find himself ruler of whatever remained. It seems like the key creatives behind The Survivalist agree, as the trailer for this upcoming post-apocalyptic action thriller gives us a glimpse into a world where civilisation has crumbled, but Malkovich is king… so not all bad.

The film is set ‘a year and a half after the fall of civilisation due to a viral outbreak, when a former FBI agent forced to protect a young woman immune to the disease from a dangerous gang leader hunting her.’

Ruby Modine (daughter of Matthew Modine) and Jonathan Rhys Meyers also star, with the film set to release in October in the US. No plans for a UK release have been announced as of yet.
