Well it only took two years, but a full trailer for Douglas Aarniokoski’s post-apocalyptic survival actioner “The Day” has finally surfaced. If you weren’t one of the lucky few who saw the film when it was playing the festival circuit back in 2011, you were probably wondering what the hell the movie was really about. Well wonder no more. This trailer explains all, setting the stage for one hell of a last stand. Ashley Bell (“The Last Exorcism”), by the way, is clearly the film’s main lead. Damn, that is one tough gal!
A group of five survivors, armed with shotguns, axes and machetes, wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for refuge in The Day, a terrifying look into a post-apocalyptic future. As war ravages humanity, destroying civilization and most of life on earth, the survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. Lost, starving, and exhausted, they seek shelter in a seemingly safe abandoned farmhouse. However, while searching for food and resources, they unwittingly set off a trap signaling to their ruthless predators lying in wait to begin their deadly attack. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must make a desperate final stand–over a 24 hour period–battling for their ultimate survival.
“The Day” also stars Shawn Ashmore, Michael Eklund, Cory Hardrict, Dominic Monaghan, and Shannyn Sossamon.
Anchor Bay has the film scheduled for a limited theatrical run on August 29th, 2012. My guess is you’ll be able to see it on VOD before that.
