Despite production on one MH370-related film being delayed, another already has been continuing on, and has just released a trailer. Yes, filmmakers in Cannes have been working on the film The Vanishing Act: The Untold Story of the Missing Malaysian Plane. Now, you might reasonably wonder why such a movie is coming out before the missing plane has actually been found.
Indian director Rupesh Paul explained, “The movie is based on an investigative report by a journalist which was rejected by the media so it is definitely controversial. The movie will answer two questions: one is what went wrong with MH370 and where is MH370 on this earth?”
The trailer for the movie uses actual, real-world footage, mixed in with scenes of drama, suspense, and horror from inside the plane itself.
Paul acknowledges the controversy he’s inviting by doing the movie at all, but remains confident the families of the missing won’t be too hurt by the film, which features fictionalized people on the plane as opposed to the actual people who were on the plane.
