For whatever reason, the world simply can’t get enough of darkly dystopian sci-fi epics, particularly ones that involve children. And who is M83 to deny the world what it desires? This morning, Anthony Gonzalez debuted his second collaboration with French directing duo Fleur & Manu for his band’s “Reunion” video, which, it turns out, is the next installment of the epic escape a gang of extraordinary children began in his video for “Midnight City.”
At nearly five minutes long, part two of the saga continues the tradition begun in part one — it’s basically Skrillex’s “Bangarang” clip if the grown-ups were truly evil and the kids were from X-Men rather than Hook. Mutant GPS and Rogue-type exploitation included. Don’t worry, though, there’s a happy ending here (at least for now)… even if it does involve some kind of exorcism.
