It’s a good day for fans of post-apocalyptic cinema. Thanks to the movie-minded individuals at Twitch, the entire world can now feast their collective eyeballs on the teaser trailer for Doug Aarniokoski’s “The Day”. Although it’s a little tough to tell what, precisely, the film is all about, the embedded clip is eerie enough to ensnare my attention without much need for pesky exposition. Of course, my enthusiasm might be a byproduct of my current addiction to “Fallout: New Vegas” and my fondness for Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road”. After all, there’s nothing better than watching people wander around a hostile post-apocalyptic landscape for two hours. I’m being totally serious.
Here’s an unofficial plot synopsis:
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.”
Unfortunately, that’s about all the story-oriented information that’s available right now. However, the embedded trailer is certainly enough to keep me interested until the specifics are made available to the masses.
