1884 - Horatio Kitchengame to the rescue!

Terry Gilliam has such a nightmare getting his own films made that he's decided to start helping other people instead. That, at least, is the case with Tim Ollive's 1884.

Set in 1884 - but supposedly made in 1848, "forty years before the birth of film" - it's a steampunk retro-future adventure in which our hero Horatio Kitchengame, fresh from visiting the Moon and claiming it for the British Empire, undertakes his most perilous journey yet...

Having watched the trailer for myself 1884 all seems rather familiar. I wonder why...

Pax Britannia the Movie anyone?
