Ares script
Ares (2016)
Synopsis: A futuristic France uses an engaging, violent TV competition show to keep its people distracted so they don't rebel over their crippling poverty.

200 miles from the nearest city.

It sinks in. He’s hopelessly far from civilization.

LAUGHTER from inside ARES 1.

ADRENALINE jolts through Evan. He stares at the capsule.

Shocked.

Silence. Then RUSTLING. Someone’s INSIDE THE CAPSULE.

Evan, panicking, looks around -- sees nothing but the rocky

hillside and parched honeycomb of the mud flat below.

He tries to stand, but is too weak. He picks up a rock to useas a weapon. CRAWLS toward the capsule. He’s about to enter -When

AN ANIMAL with gaping jaws -- TEETH COVERED IN BLOOD --

steps into the doorway.

Evan GASPS. It’s a HYENA. Behind it, he can see the inside of

the capsule. A CHEWED, DECAYING LEG pokes out of a tornpressure suit. The hyena has been eating the dead astronauts.

Evan, yelling ferociously, HURLS his rock. Hitting the hyena.

It SNARLS. Baring its teeth. It’s about to attack, when -Evan

completely loses it. Throwing every rock in reach at it.

The hyena dodges the rocks and retreats. Then continues

circling Evan. For the hyena, it’s a waiting game.

Keeping an eye on his predator, Evan crawls

INSIDE THE CAPSULE

He tenderly tucks the chewed astronaut leg back in itspressure suit. Tries to collect himself -

EVAN:

OK... OK. It’ll take them 24 hours to

create an algorithm. Estimate wherewe landed.

He punches buttons on the navigation system. Nothing turns on.

6.

EVAN:

Given wind and pressure, thatestimate could be off by... a 200mile radius? Pi times 200 squared...

they’ll have to search over 125,600square miles. They’ll never find me.

Evan smiles. Feels safer.

EVAN:

But they’ll figure out where I’m

going.

(his smile disappears)

I gotta get there first...

The realization kicks him into gear. He rips the medical kitout of the capsule wall. Finds SUPER GLUE.
