Captive State has a lot going for it.

And we mean a lot.

John Goodman stars alongside Moonlight breakout Ashton Sanders.

Rupert Wyatt, the filmmaker behind the criminally underappreciated Rise of the Planet of the Apes directs.

And it's elevator pitch is enough to get any sci-fi enthusiast excited:

What if aliens attacked Earth...and won?

Set in Chicago ten years after the takeover, the movie explores a "utopia" with no crime, no poverty and no unemployment. The E.T. overlords have restored "balance" and "peace," but of course, it's not exactly that.

Captive State opens in theaters on March 29, 2019.
