Final section of pre-apocalypse montage filmed at 5pm today
THE final footage for a grainy, event-packed pre-apocalypse montage will be filmed at the Capitol in Washington DC at 5pm today.
Set to a cover version of Tom Waits’s Earth Died Screaming, the accelerating montage will include news items on the melting of Antarctica, advances in artificial intelligence and the antibiotics crisis before cutting to Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The montage will then slow to normal speed for the swearing-in, and immediately following Trump’s words “and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” will dramatically cut to black.
The screen will then display the title card “TWELVE YEARS LATER” before the opening credits play over a slow panning shot across a devastated landscape in which nothing is left alive.
