Collider – what would you do if you could go back in time?

A joint project between Irish and Portuguese talent, Collider is a sci-fi production from beActive Entertainment that started as a Comic Book and multiplatform project and which has now been released as a feature film in Irish cinemas today, January 10th 2014.

The menacing, creepy film tells the tale of a group of confused but courageous survivors who must find a way to save themselves after the entire planet has collapsed.

But they’re not alone…

Collider was inspired by experiments performed at the CERN campus in Geneva, where scientists found the Higgs Boson and won the Nobel Prize in physics 2013.

With the theme of  “What would you do if you could go back in time?” Collider’s action takes place in 2018. The planet has just collapsed and the human species will be wiped out due to a succession of natural disasters and the emergence a mutant race called the Unknown.

In the movie, Peter, Alisha, Carlos, Fiona, Luke and Lucy must join forces to reactivate the Collider, to go back in time and prevent the apocalypse. This will not be an easy journey: in less than 24 hours, the time portal will close forever.

Directed by Irish helmer Jason Butler (Republic of Telly, The Rubberbandits) and produced by Nuno Bernardo, Triona Campbell and John McDonnell, Collider features actors Iain Robertson (Basic Instinct 2, Plunkett & Macleane, The Contractor, Band Of Brothers) and Lucy Cudden (Pulp, Judas Ghost Afterlife) in the lead roles. It was written by two-time EMMY nominee Nuno Bernardo (“Final Punishment” and “Beat Girl”).
