RLJE Films and Netflix have published the first trailer for the family fantasy The Water Man. The film was directed by David Oyelowo (“Interstellar”, “Les Miserables”), and he also played one of the main roles. For David, the film was his directorial debut.
I grew up in family films that are filled with adventure, fantasy and danger. As a father of four, I want to show my children films that not only entertain them, but also prepare them for the ups and downs ahead. I enjoy watching films with them that take us to another world, and then give food for thought and discussion. I love these films, which is why I decided to make one of these for my children, other families and, hopefully, for the whole world!
The plot of the film is dedicated to a young man named Ganner, whose mother is seriously ill. To cure her, the boy, together with his new girlfriend, sets out in search of the mysterious Water One to find out the secret of his immortality. David himself plays the young man’s father, who must follow his son and save him from danger.
The Water Man stars Lonnie Chavis (Magic Camp), Amaya Miller (War for the Planet of the Apes), Rosario Dawson (The Mandalorian) and Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2). The film will be released in the United States on May 7. The date of the Russian premiere has not yet been announced.
