Paramount Pictures has updated the official website for Charlize Theron sci-fi actioner Aeon Flux, set to hit theaters later this year. At the site, you can get a first peek at the upcoming comic book adaptation from Dark Horse Comics, a new video clip (shown after you click on ‘Gallery’) featuring Theron and Sophie Okonedo (who plays Sithandra) and a photo gallery with 33 images from the anticipated film.
Based on the MTV animated series created by Peter Chung, Aeon Flux is set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth’s population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. The story centers on Aeon Flux (Theron), the top operative in the underground ‘Monican’ rebellion – led by The Handler (Frances McDormand). When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill a government leader, she uncovers a world of secrets.
Directed by Karyn Kusama, the film also stars Marton Csokas, Jonny Lee Miller, Pete Postlethwaite, Amelia Warner and Caroline Chikezie.
