It’s been a long wait, but Xavier Gens’ post-apocalyptic endeavor “The Divide” will finally see the proverbial light of day on January 13th, 2012. How freaking amazing is that noise? In order to prepare you for the end of the world, Anchor Bay Films has granted the humble masses access to the film’s opening sequence. I’m not the sort to indulge in this sort of pre-release promotion, but I’m sure some of you will be anxious to check it out. So, you know, by all means, check it out.
Unfamiliar with “The Divide”? This may prove useful:
Nine strangers escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in an apartment building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
The film stars Lauren German, Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Biehn, Michael Eklund, Rosanna Arquette, and Courtney B. Vance. The sequence you seek resides below.
Note: This is actually an old clip that was release way back in March, but we’re re-posting it anyway because the film is coming out next month, and it’s a pretty nifty clip. – Nix
