    By scifiMethods on July 21, 2013
    Today’s short film is a visual and auditory feast. These French student filmmakers clearly set out to create a homage to everyone’s favorite Future-Noir masterpiece (that’s Blade Runner, by the way) and have absolutely succeeded in that aspiration.

    The next phase of Tom Cruise’s mission on earth (to be in all scifi films) will proceed with “Edge of Tomorrow”, which is scheduled for release in June 2014.
