New Poster for Doug Aarniokoski’s Post-Apocalyptic Survival Flick The Day

1 Comment

It’s been a while since I started tracking director Douglas Aarniokoski’s “The Day”, a survival action movie set in some kind of post-apocalyptic Earth. The trailer that was released almost two years ago (above) didn’t really give a whole lot away, but it was intriguing enough to convince me to continue keeping tabs on it. After all, I love this stuff. In any case, after doing the festival circuit since, the film has now gotten a 2012 release date — August 29, 2012, according to the poster, though where or how you can see it, I couldn’t tell you — and a new swanky poster. Check it out below, check it outers.

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 film stars Shawn Ashmore, Shannyn Sossamon, Dominic Monaghan, Ashley Bell, Cory Hardrict, and Michael Eklund.
