The trailer for director Martin Owen’s new sci-fi film Max Cloud has been released.
Max Cloud is a sci-fi action film about a female teenage gamer who gets transported into a video game, in a setup that feels similar to Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle and Jumanji: The Next Level.
The film stars Scott Adkins in the titular role with a supporting cast that includes John Hannah, Lashana Lynch, Elliot James Langridge, Tommy Flanagan, Franz Drahmeh, and Sam Hazeldine. This film should be an interesting indie film as it looks like it has been heavily inspired by old school side-scroller games. Check out the trailer!

We then see the titular character Max Cloud (played by Adkins) beat up intergalactic bad guys that invaded his crashed ship.
