The Divide Trailer

The lucky ones died in the blast. Holy crap is looks intense! Anchor Bay has finally debuted a full theatrical trailer via Yahoo for Xavier Gens' The Divide, a tense thriller set around a nuclear attack and nine people who survive in a bomb shelter under their apartment. The ensemble cast is lead by Michael Biehn and Milo Ventimiglia, and includes Lauren German, Michael Eklund, Rosanna Arquette and Ashton Holmes. I'm a sucker for these kind of apocalyptic thrillers, especially when they look crazy and stylized and awesome like this does. I really can't wait to see this, this has a Sunshine feel to it, I hope it's that good.

Watch the theatrical trailer for Xavier Gens' The Divide, embedded in HD via Yahoo:

The Divide, originally titled The Fallout, is directed by French filmmaker Xavier Gens (of Frontier(s), Hitman), from a script by Karl Mueller & Eron Sheean. In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers—all tenants of a New York high rise apartment—escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building's bunker-like basement. "With twists and turns throughout, and no way of knowing who will make it out alive, The Divide is an action packed psychological thriller that combines Assault on Precinct 13 with Lord of the Flies." Anchor Bay Films will be releasing The Divide in limited theaters starting January 13th early next year. If you haven't seen that first teaser, catch it again here. I'm looking forward to this! You in?

That trailer for The Divide looks awesome. I WILL be seeing that when it comes out! (Yes, I went to Yahoo's site to view it because the wrong trailer is embedded here.)

Haha, for a moment I tried to imagine how that group of boys in the park and the one with the stick would be the trigger for the apocalypse.

This movie is SOOO disappointing. Saw it at SXSW.. The first 5min is the only thing remotely exciting. The rest is a predictable survival story in a really cheap looking basement. You would think for a 1 room thriller film they'd actually attempt to make the walls look real. Was painful to sit through..

The trailer totally sold me on it, but for some reason I get the feeling it will fall flat. I see what you mean when you say it looks like Sunshine. One of the things though that made Sunshine stand out more than the visuals was the philosophy of space and the power of the sun, which I always loved. If this can have the depth of story like that, then I will see it.

Looks none-too-shabber-ranking, will check it oooot.

I'm such a sucker for post-apocalyptic stories, so I will definitely see this. It's always such a hit or miss genre though. It looks like these actors bring it. I hope the characters aren't one-dimensional.

I have to agree with the previous poster - this film is terribly dissapointing. Saw it at EIFF and half the press screening audience walked out. Needlessly violent and horribly predictable it's basically Saw gone sci-fi

Looks intense! Despite what these other couple of posts say, I'm definitely going to see it. I love Michael Biehn, and he looks crazy in this. Hopefully I won't be disappointed like they were. Crossing my fingers.

Looks awesome, just wish the part where the guys come in and start shooting up the place wasn't in the trailer.  Also, Milo's first line sounded really awkward.

Why? That's the selling point. I didn't wanna see lord of the flies with canned ham.

They seemed to be building suspense with the are they gonna be rescued thing, but now we're potentially walking into the cinema knowing no, no they're not. Not such a big deal if you don't need suspense or tension to maintain interest in a story

Thats the most intense trailer ever. I feel a little spoiled, like I Know too much...but hey thats what going to the cinema drunk was invented for

They blew it with this trailer. But the interaction between the group while confined should be excellent. Reminds me a little of The Judas Syndrome series of Apocalyptic fiction. http://www.the-judas-syndrome.com

This doesn't look any different than any other post-apocolyptic or zombie film. I wish we could get some fresh ideas instead of another "the group splits up" film.
