Film: Love

LOVE is a science fiction film directed by William Eubank produced by Progressive Rock supergroup Angels & Airwaves.

The story revolves around Lee Miller, a lone astronaut aboard the International Space Station who becomes stranded and loses all contact with Earth. Over the course of the film, he struggles to remain alive and sane. Set against an original score performed by the band, the film attempts to explore the basic human need for contact with others and the power of hope.

Originally announced in 2007 as I-Empire as a tie in with the band's then-recently released second album, it suffered a few setbacks which would eventually see the title changed in time for the third album in 2010. After a few more months of delays, it was announced that the movie would premiere in February 2011 at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival with a limited release soon afterward, along with the album Love Part II. The positive reception it got prompted the group to push back a wide release until fall in order to screen it at more festivals. The film eventually got a limited one day release on August 10th, 2011 and is now available on DVD/Blu-Ray. It's also available on Netflix Instant and can be legally streamed for free on Hulu. The premiere trailer can be viewed here.
