Crazier-than-hell time-bending delight from Richard Kelly: Donnie Darko's hero has a sister, and she too is plagued by visions and space catastrophes like her spooky big brother.
The direct-to-DVD sequel, now called S. Darko will be coming out on April 28th from MGM's home entertainment.
The summary, according to the IMDB page is as follows:
S. Darko takes place in the summer of 1995, seven years after the original film. It follows Donnie Darko's younger sister, Samantha (Daveigh Chase), who, in the wake of his death, has found herself at age 17 with a broken family, mired in feelings of insignificance. She and her best friend Corey (Evigan) set off on a road trip to Hollywood in a bid to 'make it big', but their journey is cut short when their car breaks down unexpectedly, leaving them stranded in a small desert town. When a meteorite happens to crash-land nearby, Samantha is plagued by bizarre visions telling of the universe's end and it appears that their breakdown was part of some grander plan. When she finds out she was actually adopted by the Darkos, and that she is in no way related to Donnie, she must face her own demons and, in doing so, save the world and herself.
Bloody Disgusting has the first still from the DVD and shows a disheveled mer-teen all angsted out, from what I can only assume are an overdose of visions and time warps. Click on the picture for a better look.
The trailer will be premiering at this years New York Comic Con and we'll be there front and center to tell you if it heralds the return of Frank. But for now, amuse your self with the teaser.
