Attacks from the Future (original title in Spanish: Ataques Del Futuro) is an independent film series of fantasy–science fiction–adventure made by Calderón Productions, with some valuable help from Subsuelo Audio and Sobrelcielo Video.[1] Most films have been made in Mexico, however, part of the series has been produced in Sweden and Finland. The films started with their first release on the big screen in 2005 with Attacks from the Future Episode I. After the success of the first film, Calderon Productions decided to continue making these films, thus the Saga was born. It includes two series. The original series started in 2005, and ended in 2012 with Rinoplasticos VI. The expanded series started in 2010 with A Frozen Land, and is expected to end in 2016 or 2017 with a still untitled film. Most of the expanded series have been filmed in Finland.

The upcoming The Paths of Kripto is in mid stages of post-production.


First film[edit]

In early 2004 Productions Calderon did some test filming in Ixtapa. After watching the footage they decided to make a story about it. The production began in June 2005.[2] At first they had some problems with coming up with the right concept for the heroes, Then they got it. They were to be a mutant race, involved in saving their world and Universe. They are half rhinoceros half plastic: a Rinoplastico. The film takes place 5 million years into the future, so it made sense with these kind of mutations. It took about 2 weeks to film, and several days to edit. To make the figures, props and sets. They used, mostly plastilina (a Mexican type of clay), and all sorts of recycled materials.

Second and third films[edit]

After the first film productions Calderon decided to make at least two sequels. The production began in the summer of 2006. They took the opportunity to introduce new characters, and expanding world. The film had its premiere in winter 2006. It was also the first to include a Bonus Feature on the DVD. After the second part they started working on the third one. It was filmed during winter of 2007, afterwards it spent a long time in post-production. It was finally released in spring of 2008. At first it was supposed to be the final part of the series, but before the premiere of the third film it was decided that it should be six films.

Fourth film and spin-off[edit]

After the third film the production took a little break to figure out the next story. After a lot of changes in development they were ready to film. It had its premiere at New Year's Eve 2009. After the fourth film it was decided to make spin-off. Productions Calderon got help from Guard Entertainment. It was originally supposed to be in Spanish as the other films, but because of the new crew it was made in English. It was filmed in Sweden and Finland 2010. It was the first one to be filmed in snow, as the other ones where filmed in tropic environments.

Fifth and sixth film[edit]

After Rinoplasticos 4,5: A Frozen Land Productions Calderon were ready to make the fifth instalment of the Rinoplastico series. The filming began summer 2010. In this part they tried to make the audience concentrate more on the story rather than all the action. The film had its premiere in June 2011. The script for the sixth chapter was written during the fall of 2011. Filming started in late December 2011, and was concluded in January 2012. It had its premiere July 2012. It was supposed to be the last part chronologically, and it was the first episode to be an hour long.

Further spin-off films[edit]

The release of A Frozen Land inspired new ideas of films featuring other characters. A film about Kripto entered development in summer 2010, later another film about Minipupa was also announced. Both films would serve as prequels and stand-alone films in the series. However both of these films were put on hiatus due to filming of Rinoplasticos V and VI. Almost a moth after the premiere of VI a spin-off short was made, called The Good Side is Better. This revived the ideas of the other two prequel films. This series was later titled The Expanded series. The Story of Kripto started filming in fall 2012, and was released that following spring. An untitled Kripto sequel was announced for a 2015 release, as a celebration of the 10-year anniversary. A Warrior's Journey started production in summer 2014.

Upcoming films[edit]

There has been some talk about making some prequels featuring minor characters. Two of them were confirmed in 2010 as: The Story of Kripto, tells the story of Kripto, and was intended to be in three parts. Part I: Boot Camp, Part II: The War and Part III: Aftermath. Another prequel was Minipupa: The Great Warrior, which would tell the story of Minipupa. There have also been ideas about making other stories about Attacks from the Future, where there is a different story every time. There has even been ideas in making other films using different kinds of animation and other techniques.

In 2012 it was revealed that The Story of Kripto would start filming in late October to early November that year, with a release for spring 2013. It was also announced that A Warrior's Journey (previously titled Minipupa: The Great Warrior) was set to be released in summer of 2015. The three parts of The Story of Kripto would now appear as three acts in the film which ment that they wouldn't be released as separate films. In October 2012 it was revealed that Munra (who was the main antagonist in the first film) was going to have a major role in the prequel. On October 29 the first official image was revealed.

In January 2013 it was said that Warrior's Journey would be filmed back-to-back with a still untitled film about Kripto. The release date for Warrior was changed from summer 2015 to Christmas 2014, as the Kripto film received the summer release. Both films will be filmed in Finland. In May 2013 the production started writing the scripts. The title for The Paths of Kripto was revealed and confirmed on June 5, 2014.

The first concept art poster for Warrior was released on March 9, 2014. Filming commenced during June 2014.

Potential Rinoplasticos VII[edit]

It is confirmed that the sixth part is the final chapter in the Original series, but there has been rumors that a seventh film would be the launch of a new series tentatively called the Revivial series. It has been said that if a Attacks from the Future: Rinoplasticos VII would be made, it wouldn't be until the year 2021, and that it would be in Spanish again. Calderón Productions has mentioned that the older we all get the more necessary it is to write another Attacks from the Future movie.
