A Quick Look at Doug Aarniokoski’s Apocalyptic New Movie The Day

Who doesn’t like movies about the apocalypse? I’ll tell you who — uncool people, that’s who. Everyone with good taste (or at least, a hatred of the world as we know it –either/or) loves movies about the apocalypse, and Doug Aarniokoski’s “The Day” looks like something I might like very, very much.

The script is by Luke Passmore, and the plot concerns “an apocalyptic siege warfare film spanning 24 hrs during which a small group of survivors are pit against insurmountable odds.” Whatever that means. All I know is that it’s got “apocalyptic” and “siege” and “warfare” in there somewhere, and that’s good enough for me.

The filmmakers have put up six groovy looking posters for the movie on the film’s Facebook page, along with the full cast, which includes Shawn Ashmore (Iceman from the “X-Men” films), Shannyn Sossamon, Dominic Monaghan, Ashley Bell, Cory Hardrict, and Michael Eklund.
