Z for Zachariah: Craig Zobel’s Sci-Fi Thriller, Starring Margot Robbie, Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor

A bright cast, headed by Margot Robbie, Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor, star in Z for Zachariah, Craig Zobel’s post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller.

Written by Nissar Modi, it is based on the book of the same name by Robert C. O’Brien.

Robbie’s character believes she’s the last human on Earth before she meets a scientist suffering from radiation exposure (Ejiofor) and a third survivor (Pine).

The two men compete for her affection as paranoia and suspicion set in.

World premiering at the 2015 Sundance Film Fest, the film was released by Roadside Attractions in August of that year.  Despite positive reviews, Z for Zacharia never found an audience, earning only $121,461 at the box-office.
