If you've paid any attention to movie news this year, you've undoubtedly heard the name Brit Marling. The actress, writer and producer was one of the darlings of the Sundance Film Festival in January, arriving with two films that both played to strong reviews: "Sound Of My Voice" directed by Zal Batmanglij and "Another Earth" helmed by Mike Cahill. No only did Marling star in both films, she co-wrote them as well, marking her as a unique talent to watch, not solely for the multiple hats she wears both in front and behind the camera, but for the original, unique concepts she helped dream up for these movies.

Another Earth

If you've paid any attention to movie news this year, you've undoubtedly heard the name Brit Marling. The actress, writer and producer was one of the darlings of the Sundance Film Festival in January, arriving with two films that both played to strong reviews: "Sound Of My Voice" directed by Zal Batmanglij and "Another Earth" helmed by Mike Cahill. No only did Marling star in both films, she co-wrote them as well, marking her as a unique talent to watch, not solely for the multiple hats she wears both in front and behind the camera, but for the original, unique concepts she helped dream up for these movies.

"Another Earth" is just what you might think the title implies, tracing a story of redemption through an unlikely cosmic event in which a parallel Earth has been discovered in our solar system, giving humanity a very literal opportunity to start over. The film is a highwire hybrid of a wrenching personal story and a sci-fi tale that weave together in unexpected ways. In this exclusive deleted scene from the film, we see Marling's character Rhoda as she glimpses Earth 2 (as it comes to be known) for the first time, on a television broadcast. It's a good measure of the eerie, haunting tone of the film as a whole and displays how organically the film deals with what would be a massive event in human history.

"Another Earth" arrives on BluRay and DVD today. Check out the scene below.
