Watch: First Enticing Teaser Trailer for Indie PA Thriller 'The Day'
Now that we know the Midnight Madness line-up at TIFF this year, one film premiering there is Douglas Aarniokoski's The Day, a post-apocalyptic thriller starring a cast of attractive young actors: Ashley Bell, Dominic Monaghan, Shawn Ashmore, Cory Hardrict and Shannyn Sossamon. This teaser trailer, and poster, came from RopeofSilicon, as it's now time to build some buzz for TIFF. The Day is yet another "band of survivors must fight to keep humanity alive in a bleak post-apocalyptic world" film. I hate to say it, but this trailer kind of seemed like an MTV promo for their own PA series. But I'll still see it. Watch below!
Here's the first promo trailer for Douglas Aarniokoski's The Day, embedded from RopeofSilicon:
In a post-apocalyptic future, a war against humanity rages. Five survivors wander the back-roads, lost, starving, on the run. With dwindling food and supplies, an attempt to find shelter turns into a fight to live.
The Day is directed by filmmaker Douglas Aarniokoski, a former second unit director-turned-director, of Highlander: Endgame, Animals and the upcoming Nurse 3D. The screenplay was written by Luke Passmore (Bad Blood Days). This was shot in Ontario, Canada and was produced by Parlay Media and Faction M. The film will be premiering at the Toronto Film Fest in Midnight Madness this fall. Visit their official Facebook.
