离奇电影“预言”马航MH370事件

Australian horror film that sees China-bound flight crash into the ocean and survivors fight off giant sharks is shelved after MH370 tragedy

据英国《每日邮报》报道,澳大利亚一家电影公司已经紧急叫停了一部名为《深水》(Deep Water)的惊悚动作电影的拍摄,因为影片里出现了与马航MH370事件离奇相似的剧情。

这部电影讲述了一架飞往中国的航班神秘地在一片偏僻海域坠毁的故事,故事中的飞机沉入深海,而事故幸存者们则必须要在汪洋大海中和饥饿的鲨鱼展开搏斗。

这部令人毛骨悚然的“预言”电影还有一条宣传词写道:“飞机沉入无底深渊,海面上游弋着大自然最恐怖的杀手,幸存者四面楚歌,恐怖无法预料。”

鉴于目前的马航飞机失踪事件,电影发行方电弧光影业(Arclight Films)决定暂时停止电影的拍摄。

这部电影的导演是阿里斯特・格里尔森(Alister Grierson)。他曾在2011年也拍过一部和现实灾难“撞车”的电影——电影《圣地》讲述了一个水下探险家遭遇强烈风暴,差点在深海洞穴中丧生的故事,而在影片准备上映前两周,澳大利亚遭遇了一场洪水灾害,损失极为惨重。

在现实世界的3月8日凌晨,飞往北京的马航MH370航班起飞后与地面失去联系,机上共有乘员239名,包括154名中国乘客。3月24日22时,马来西亚总理宣布飞机坠毁于南印度洋,乘客无生还可能。


An Australian film company has halted preproduction of its upcoming film 'Deep Water' because of eerie similarities the plot has to the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight 370.

The action horror feature, from Arclight Films, tells the story of a China-bound flight that mysteriously crashes in a remote stretch of ocean. The survivors then have to fend off hungry sharks as 'the plane is starting to sink into a bottomless abyss.'

'Out of sensitivity to the Malaysia flight situation, we've decided to put it on pause for now,' Arclight Films managing director Gary Hamilton told The Hollywood Reporter Monday.

The news comes as Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak told a press conference new analysis suggested the flight ended in the southern Indian Ocean, and that all those on board are now dead.

The creepily similar film plot had been promoted with the tagline: 'Survivors of a plane crash face terror beyond reckoning as the plane is starting to sink into a bottomless abyss and soon discover they're surrounded by the deadliest natural born killers on earth.'


It's not the first time Alister Grierson, the film's director, has had a project scuppered by real-life disasters. Two weeks before the 2011 release of his best known film Sanctum, about an underwater cave diving expedition gone wrong, Australia was hit by disastrous floods.

The Queensland-based filmmaker said he couldn't deny the strange timing between his project and the real-life drama of MH3L0.

But despite saying it was 'mysterious,' he insists that his film is vastly different.

On Sunday, before it was confirmed the plane crashed into the Indian Ocean, he told MailOnline: 'The similarities and timing is interesting and I can see why anecdotally the two things link up, it's a tricky thing.

'But in simple terms, Deep Water is about an accident that happens on an airplane which goes down in the ocean, and the survivors trying to stay alive afterwards.

'It's more complicated than that as there are villains and sharks, but it's a fun action/adventure with thrills and spills and scares.'
Grierson and Australian company Arclight Films began pre-production on Deep Water at Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland weeks before the real-life incident.

It is unclear when preproduction will resume on the film, but it will be at least two years before the movie makes it to cinemas.

Grierson's first big budget feature Sanctum - produced by Avatar filmmaker James Cameron - was two weeks out from release when Queensland and Northern New South Wales were hit by devastating floods in 2011.

The floods came through and destroyed whole areas, with people losing their lives,' he said.

'We had this weird situation where we were about to release a film where there's flooding and people drown. It was strange territory.'
Grierson said Deep Water was likely to be a co-production with China, who also worked with the same Australian crew on kitsch shark thriller Bait with Sharni Vinson and Julian McMahon.

'We've nicknamed it Bait 2 because there's a lot of the same crew and even themes, but it's a stand alone story,' he said of Deep Water.

Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 vanished from civilian radar screens less than an hour after take-off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing with 239 people on board on March 8.

No confirmed sighting of the plane has been made since, but much debris has been found in remote waters off Australia which might be part of the missing plane.

Relatives of passengers in Beijing had been called to a hotel near the airport to hear the prime minister's press conference Monday, and some 50 of them gathered there. Afterward, they filed out of a conference room in heart-wrenching grief.(MailOnline)
