Here's a movie trailer that keeps raising the stakes, all in the course of one minute. There are Mayans, cosmicness, weird artifacts, investigators, lizard people, aliens, big honking UFOs... and then a guy shoots a tracking dart at a UFO!

Seriously, check it out. In the minute it takes to watch this trailer for Mexico's Seres: GĂ©nesis, I went from mildly intrigued to full-throttle engaged.

Here's the film's synopsis, from the official website:

It is the year 2010. Mexico's technological giant Owal Tec leaded by it's general manager Mariel and it's team, are investigating the paranormal activities that are happening around the country and the world. This by using the secret Division 7 in the company. Graco, their archeological leader is looking for king's pacal's codecs. One of the last mayan kings that was known for prophesying the end of our times in the Mayan calendar. This was done by perfectly marking the Month and Day this will happen.

At the same time, the US government investigates the phenomenon and decides not to go trough with the partnership they had with Owal Tec. This and other recent happenings are the reason why Owal Tec needs to push forward with their investigations. The team starts to make findings that will lead them to believe that King Pascal was not actually wrong in his predictions.

We will learn that "since the beginning of time, they have been among us" and that "the species will reach extinction".

This is the first part of a trilogy. Seres: GĂ©nesis is the beginning, Seres: Evolution will mark the future for our kind and Seres: Extinction will reveal our destiny.


And there's also a comic book. [via Quiet Earth]
