Quite few years ago I saw few scenes from a sci-fi movie (or at least I think it was a movie).

I remember people from all around the world waking up on a beach, they were able to understand each other despite speaking different languages, they found some kind of capsules on the beach which contained clothes, I think (the people may have been washed ashore nude), and I think they met like older species of human, neanderthal maybe or something like that.

    @Valorum hit it right on the nose with Riverworld. You (k0h3z) should read the books.

Could this be the 2003 version of Riverworld?

Our hero wakes up on a beach surrounded by naked people, including various neanderthals and historical personages. They fairly rapidly find clothes.

    Ughh that was a bad trailer. After having read all the books a loooong time ago, this trailer guarantees that I will never watch this particular show.

    @PeterM - You'll be pleased to learn that this was intended to be the pilot of a TV show, and that it got cancelled

    @PeterM If a show doesn't exist, is it really possible to not watch it when there is nothing to not watch to begin with?
