[Black screen. You hear two fast paced, panicked; out of breath voices.]

KARL:

To your left; to your left, up on the hill. Now your three o’clock.

STEVE:

I see him I’m reloading, cover me.

KARL:

Crap, I’m out of ammo. There’s a mob coming towards me. Reload already.

STEVE:

I’m going a fast as I can, alright.

KARL:

Shit I’m hit hurry, ahhh, too late I’m dead

[The black screen fades to show Karl and STEVE SITTING on the living room floor playing gears of war on the x-box. Beside them are empty bottles of juice and empty sweet wrappers.]

KARL:

Ahhh, we were so close.

STEVE:

Ahhh balls I’m dead now too, alright one more shot and we’ll call it a night.

[Leanne enters the living room. She is in her pyjamas. she has just woken up. She looks tired.]

KARL:

Morning, you feeling ruff this morning? You and Matt where pretty steaming last night.

LEANNE:

Yeah I’m fine sure I told you I don’t get hangovers. You guys missed a good night like. It was so funny, right outside Fat Sam’s Matt got beat up by this really drunk fat girl. It was so funny trying to watch him fight her off.

STEVE:

Gutted.

LEANNE:

We were so drunk getting back in here last night. Wait where you two not playing this when we got back? Have you two been playing all night?

STEVE:

We’ve been stuck on the last level since five.

LEANNE:

You guys are sad. Stick on the news I’m sure there’s something going on; I remember Mr Taxi driver telling me about it.

KARL:

Gives us half an hour all we need is one more shot and we’ll finish the game.

[The level of the game restarts]

LEANNE:

Can we not watch it now, I sure it’s really important something about a giant green lizard attacking the city.

STEVE:

Leanne, you were steaming last night.

LEANNE:

I’m sure he said a giant green lizard. That’s why I want to find out.

KARL:

We know you seemed pretty sure last night.

LEANNE:

Put on the news then you’ll see. I’m not crazy

KARL:

An ha

LEANNE:

I’m not.

KARL:

Okay

LEANNE:

You guys are dicks I’m making a cup of tee.

KARL:

Make me one.

[Leanne leaves the living room to make a cup of tea.]

CUT TO:

SC2 INT. Flat Living Room – Day 1 [09:40]

Sitting on the sofa is leanne with a cup of tea. Karl and Steve are still playing the x-box. They have just died again.

KARL:

Aahh, not again.

STEVE:

It’s alright one more shot and we’ll do it we were so close that time.

KARL:

Leanne, did you make me a cup of tea?

LEANNE:

Naw, you’re a dick. (pause) It’s in the kitchen

KARL:

(smiling at leanne). Thank you.

LEANNE:

Can we watch the news now?

STEVE:

Just one more shot.

[Suddenly the power goes out in the flat.]

STEVE:

We didn’t save did we?

KARL:

I’m to check the switch board before I start to cry.

[Karl leaves the room to check the switch board. leanne makes her way to the window and opens the blinds.]

KARL: (O.O.V)

The trip switch is up; the power should be back on.

LEANNE:

I don’t think the trips the problem.

[A big gaint green lizard walks past the living room window.]

LEANNE:

You guys might want to see this. I told you I wasn’t crazy.

[Steve stands up and looks out the window and a short time after Karl appears behind him. All three of the flat mates look out the window.]

KARL:

Huh! Now that’s some you don’t see everyday.

LEANNE:

See I told you? But oh no, no one would listen to Leanne.

KARL:

What the hell do we do now? Steve it’s all over what the hell are we going to do? We’ve got no power. We’re going to starv….

[With a stern and determined look on his face Steve says.]

STEVE:

No

KARL:

Sorry?

STEVE:

No, it’s not over. Not while there is still air in my lungs and blood pumping thought my veins it will never be over. Karl we’ve came too far we’ve done too much.

LEANNE:

Yeah, gay boys

STEVE:

We’ve seen too much. Been thought too much together it’s not over. Too long has Gears of War sat on the book shelve uncompleted.

LEANNE:

You two are idiots; I’m going to see if Matt’s awake.

[Leanne leaves the living room.]

STEVE:

Too long have we been stuck on the final boss. Today is the day where it ends. Today is the day when we complete Gears of War. I promise you Karl today we will finish this game. One way or another it ends; and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let a giant green lizard thing stop me. Karl are you with me?

[The buzzer rings and before Karl can answer.]

Steve:

Oh a visitor. I wonder who it could be.

CUT TO:

[Leanne is it her bed room she is trying to wake up Matt who is lying under the covers in her bed. His entire body is covered.]

LEANNE:

Matt? Matt? Are you alright? God how hung-over are you.

MATT:

(Incoherent mumbling)

LEANNE:

I was going to make breakfast but the power’s out some big giant green lizard thing is attacking the city. You should come see.

MATT:

(More incoherent mumbling)

LEANNE:

Fine then sleep.

CUT TO:

[Steve is in his bedroom by the Secrete Compartment at the window. He throws the clothes that are lying on it to the floor and throws the lid to the side inside is a lego dinosaur, a map of dundee, three toy army men and a toy car. Steve takes a deep breath and takes out the things.]

CUT TO:

SC5 int. flat living room – day 1

[As Steve enters; sitting in the living room is Mitch, Kirsty and Leanne. Karl is standing by the window. Steve lays the map out on the floor.]

STEVE:

Ok guys I’ve always knew that what has happen today was a possibility so I took the time to come up with a plan. Mitch we’re going to need your car. Do you have it with you?

MITCH:

Yeah it’s up at Kirsty’s

KARL:

Actually, no it’s not.

CUT TO:

KARL:

You’ve got insurances right?

MITCH:

Yeah.

KARL:

Does it cover damage by monsters?

MITCH:

No.

KARL:

Yeah, you’re screwed.

[Mitch makes his way to the window and see’s his car on fire; now with the same sternt and determined look on his face as Steve.]

MITCH:

Now it’s personal. Steve what’s the plan?

STEVE:

As I said I’ve taken the time to come up with a plan for this exact eventuality. Of course we’re going to have to change it a little now that Mitch’s car is out of play. So hears the plan (pointing at the map) we’re here and we need to get to the Kingways here (pointing to the kingsway on the map) that’s where the B&Q is; and that’s also where we’ll be most likely to find a generator. I was hoping to have Mitch’s car. Since we don’t we’re just going to have to carry the generator back. But first we need to get rid of that giant green lizard. Ok so one of the key things we need to avoid is this.

[Steve picks up one of the toy SOLDIERS and puts it in to the mouth of the lego dinosaur. he makes dinosaur noises Karl and Mitch nod in agreement.]

STEVE:

I’m not going to lie to you this is going be dangerous; so if you want to back out now’s the time.

[Karl slowly looks at Mitch and then Steve. He put’s his hand in to the centre of the map. Mitch follow’s then Steve.]

Alright then, at sundown; we move out.
