John Malkovich and Robert Rodriguez made a film no-one will see for 100 years

We know what you're thinking and no... that is not a typo. Robert Rodriguez and John Malkovich have teamed up for their new movie 100 Years, which has been dubbed as "the film you will never see" because it won't be released for - wait for it - 100 years. The concept also serves as a promo of sorts for Louis XIII Cognac (the brand is funding the film), which is left to mature for 100 years before being put on the market.

Check out three teasers below...

Those teasers - which show three alternative versions of 2115 - aren't actually taken from the film, which will be placed in a time capsule that won't be opened for 100 years. Speaking with io9, Rodriguez and Malkovich revealed very little about the plot, but Malkovich did say he did a lot of research for the script: "Some of it was strangely accurate, oddly enough, but of course the vast majority of it was unimaginable. And I think that’s what the future is to most of us".

While the concept is interesting (and a little bizarre), it's hard to get excited about a film we'll never see and cognac we'll never taste. The ultimate plan is for Louis XIII to send 1,000 custom-made metal movie tickets to 1,000 influential people who will then pass it down to their descendants. The only question is, how do we get our hands on one?

Directed by Rodriguez and starring Malkovich, Marko Zaror and Shuya Chang, 100 Years will be released in cinemas (if they're still around) on November 18 2115.
