The early contender for the oddest movie of the year (and I don't know how it could be surpassed, really) is After Last Season. It even seems to have a release date.

the synopsis, courtesy of IMDb:

"The end of another season has brought more than the usual change in temperature to the residents of a city. As they go through some tragic events, the residents, and especially a group of medical students, must reevaluate their lives and face new questions."


As David Lowery says, the whole thing defies logic. My first thought is, clearly this is some sort of elaborate ruse. The film doesn't seem to be going to festivals or anything, that I can tell, so here's my theory: Mark Region isn't a real person. It kind of sounds like a made-up name anyway. This is somehow some sort of first step in a Charlie Kaufman or Spike Jonze sort of thing where you put out a trailer for a movie that may or may not even exist. I wouldn't be surprised if none of the footage in the trailer was even in the movie. Also, I think a studio is behind it in some way. How else would it be on Apple trailers this far in advance?

Of course, I could be completely wrong.
