Leading Tamil actor Arya's next film, Captain, is his second collaboration with hit director Shakti Soundar Rajan after last year's Teddy. The upcoming film is a science-fiction thriller and has been produced by the Sarpatta Parambarai actor's The Show People banner in association with Think Studios, with the team releasing an action-packed trailer on Monday, August 22. Shakti Soundar Rajan, who is known for his ambitious films in the past like Miruthan, Tik Tik Tik, and Teddy, has once again gone one step ahead by introducing the human vs alien conflict in Tamil cinema with Captain, which will open in cinemas worldwide on September 8. 

The Captain trailer starts off by introducing to us Arya as a Captain in the Indian Army, who is joined by Aishwarya Lekshmi as his love interest, while the supporting cast features names like Kavya Shetty, Thyagarajan, Harish Uthaman, Gokul, and Bharath Raj, including Simran who is appearing in a crucial role as a scientist. We see several cadets disappearing in a place the army has marked as Sector 42 where there has been no military activity over the past 50 years. Arya then leads a battle in the forest region where he and his team encounter a creature of new species. 

Captain is set to take a huge release and will be presented under actor-politician Udhayanidhi Stalin's Red Giant Movies banner. The film is also the fourth occasion Shakti Soundar Rajan has teamed up with chart-buster composer D. Imman and the songs released from the film so far have received a positive response. With the man vs. alien factor forming the core plot point of Captain, we can expect the film to cater to audiences of all ages when it arrives in cinemas around the world next month.
