It seems as if we’ve been waiting for Doug Aarniokoski’s “The Day” to finally hit DVD/Blu-ray (or VOD) for ages now. What can I say: the combination of post-apocalyptic and last stand action is like catnip to me. Well the wait is almost over, kids. The film is currently scheduled for DVD and Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack on November 27th, 2012 courtesy of WWE Studios and Anchor Bay Films. Box cover art and specs below. Not much by way of specs, unfortunately, but an audio commentary ain’t bad.
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” stars Shawn Ashmore, Ashley Bell, Michael Eklund, Cory Hardrict, Dominic Monaghan and Shannyn Sossamon.
Bonus features on Blu-ray/DVD Combo and DVD include audio commentary with executive producer/director Doug Aarniokoski, producer Guy A. Danella and writer Luke Passmore.
