With a title like Captain Fantastic it could be mistaken for another superhero film but in these days of Marvel, green screens and that style of escapism, it seems that writer and director Matt Ross has pulled together a great cast and if this trailer below is anything to go by (and our 5-star Cannes 2016 review) then this is a very interesting movie indeed.

Also starring George MacKay, Samantha Isler, Annalise Basso, Nicholas Hamilton, Shree Crooks and Charlie Shotwell, watch the trailer below and scroll down if you’d like a little more synopsis:

Captain Fantastic is released in the UK on September 9.

Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Viggo Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults. But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he’s taught them.

(l to r) Shree Crooks stars as Zaja, Viggo Mortensen as Ben, Samantha Isler as Kielyr, Nicholas Hamilton as Rellian, Annalise Basso as Vespyr, George MacKay as Bo and Charlie Shotwell as Nai in Captain Fantastic
