SYnopsis COLLIDER is the story of six strangers mysteriously transported to the year 2018, a post-apocalyptic future wasteland, ravaged by natural disasters, in which they must come together to discover how to return to the present and save mankind from extinction.
What would you do if you could travel back in time? (short version) When a scientific experiment goes wrong, mankind is on the verge of extinction and the world faces its darkest hour. Mysteriously transported to a post-apocalyptic future, six people need to find a way to get back to the present and save mankind - and their own lives. In the year 2018, the planet collapses due to natural disaster and the appearance of a mutant species called “The Unknown”. Unaware of time and space, the six survivors, driven by Peter Ansay, a young genius in quantum physics will have to join forces to reactivate the COLLIDER and go back in time and avoid the apocalypse. But it will not be an easy journey: within less than 24 hours, the gate will close for good…
What would you do if you could travel back in time? (medium version) COLLIDER is a science-fiction motion picture inspired by the universe and the graphic novel of the same name created by award-winning and Emmy-nominated writer-producer Nuno Bernardo (Sofia’s Diary, Beat Girl, Final Punishment), depicting the last 24 hours of a group of six characters trapped on the CERN campus in the year 2018. They are our last hope to avoid certain destruction of the world. Mysteriously transported to a post-apocalyptic future, Peter, Luke, Alisha, Carlos, Lucia and Fiona need to find a way to get back to the present and save mankind - and their own lives. In the year 2018, the planet collapses due to natural disaster and the appearance of a mutant species called “The Unknown”. The air outside is unbreathable and the only path is through the labyrinth of underground tunnels connecting the CERN campus. Meanwhile, ‘The Unknown’ watch from the shadows, waiting for their chance to attack the survivors. But the main threat however comes from within the group. With different personalities and motivations, the survivors needlessly complicate the mission along the way. Not everyone agrees on how best to use the COLLIDER. The clock is ticking and humanity’s salvation is hanging by a tread. In a race against time, the survivors will discover the terrible truth behind the COLLIDER experiment while trying to change the time line continuum itself, before all is lost forever… COLLIDER features Iain Robertson (Basic Instinct 2, Plunkett & Macleane, The Contractor, Band of Brothers) and Lucy Cudden (Pulp, Judas Ghost, Afterlife) and was directed by Jason Butler (Republic of Telly, The Rubberbandits). Frost Magazine described COLLIDER as “Edge-of-your-seat action”, while ICN referred that COLLIDER has “Impeccable pacing and suspense”.

The action in COLLIDER goes down in Geneva, in Switzerland, on a location that once was the CERN campus, where the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest particle accelerator, is located. Being unfamiliar with this new world that surrounds them, the six survivors from different countries and periods of time, are immediately confronted with a reality they are unable to understand. When Peter explains that the humans are extinct, and that they face the same destiny, if they don’t react quickly, the group starts to define an action plan. The group must work together to reactivate the COLLIDER and use it to travel back through time and save mankind. But it will not be easy. In less than 24 hours the gate of time will close for good. Meanwhile, ‘The Unknown’ watch from the shadows, waiting for their chance to attack the survivors. But the main threat however comes from within the group. With different personalities and motivations, the survivors needlessly complicate the mission along the way. Not everyone agrees on how best to use the time machine. COLLIDER features Iain Robertson (Basic Instinct 2, Plunkett & Macleane, The Contractor, Band of Brothers) and Lucy Cudden (Pulp, Judas Ghost, Afterlife) and was directed by Jason Butler (Republic of Telly, The Rubberbandits). The movie is complemented by two mobile Apps (iOS and Android), a series of 6 comic books, a graphic Novel (already on sale in the UK) and a full social media experience. CONTENT MEDIA is handling international sales. COLLIDER combines traditional sci-fi themes with an action packed story, with elements of drama and romance. The setting is a post-apocalyptic future world with an uninhabitable atmosphere and terrifying creatures that wait in the dark, time travel and a lone group of survivors as humanity’s last hope for redemption. Unusually for an independent multiplatform series, COLLIDER has over 70 digital visual effects, including scenery reconstructions and scenes entirely generated on computer (CGI).

The film What would you do if you could travel back in time? In the year 2012, a scientist named Peter Ansay breaks into the CERN laboratory to sabotage an experiment with the Large Hadron Collider to simulate the first moments of the universe. But something goes terribly wrong and he is transported to the year 2018, in a world now destroyed by natural disasters. Peter wakes up in an abandoned hotel with the strange feeling that he has been here before. The atmosphere outside is uninhabitable and lying in wait are The Unknown, a race of terrifying mutants who prey on those foolish enough to wander into the shadows. Peter soon discovers that in humanity’s search for answers concerning creation, it has doomed itself to extinction.

The Graphic Novel COLLIDER: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL is the compilation of the six comic books initially published in the summer of 2012 by beActive to introduce the six characters of the COLLIDER universe: Peter, Luke, Lucia, Alisha, Carlos and Fiona. Each comic book features the background of each character before they wake up in the abandoned hotel at the CERN campus in 2018 (the moment where the COLLIDER feature begins). Twelve artists were involved in the making of the graphic novel over a period of ten months. The original comic books were on TOP5 at the prestigious COMICS PLUS online store in the USA and were later transformed into motion comics broadcast on YouTube, reaching an audience of 200,000 people. Recently these motion comics were exhibited at the Galway International Film Festival. The COLLIDER Graphic Novel was created by Mike Garley, based on the characters and universe developed by Nuno Bernardo. Mike is a writer of comics, games, screenplays and other such cool stuff. He has written for comic and book publisher Titan Publishing, and game developers Wickedy Splits, and Masters of Pie. Mike is also Editor-in-Chief of the Dead Roots comic anthology and VS Comics, as well as being the proud winner of numerous awards. The Graphic Novel presents six personalised stories that converge on a central plot. Each chapter tells the story of one central figure as they wake up in the year 2018 and encounter the other five characters. As the reader moves through each story we gain valuable insight into the characterâ€™s plight and psychology without losing sight of the overall plot. As we converge on the central story there is just enough shift of graphical and emotional perspective to maintain interest and avoid repetition. Whilst there are clear distinctions between the styles of the five graphical artists, these are juxtaposed to the switching storylines in a way that engages the audience. As the reader moves between the present, the past and individual characters, the complimentary change in graphic style prevents you from getting lost and keeps you focused in the plot development. The PAPERBACK version of the COLLIDER: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL was distributed by beActive during the summer of 2013 across Europe preceding the filmâ€™s release.

However, something goes horribly wrong and Peter finds himself in a future even worse than he had expected.

Fiona Murphy (32), Irish Fiona is a quick tempered, emotionally troubled computer programmer who has devoted the last three years of her life to searching for her missing daughter, Hannah.

Alisha Tate (24), British Self-absorbed, materialistic and quick to complain, Alisha might be the weakest link in the group.

But Alisha will prove to be more valuable to the group than she might think, especially when her photographic memory will be a crucial factor in navigating the maze of underground tunnels of the CERN campus.
