"You're gonna need every bullet." Alliance Films and eOne Films have debuted the very first trailer for Jeff Renfroe's The Colony, an ice age sci-fi thriller featuring Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton. Forced underground by the next ice age, a struggling outpost of survivors must fight to preserve humanity against a threat even more savage than nature. As much as I wanted to be looking forward to this, the visual effects and sets seem a but under-budgeted and overall this doesn't seem like anything we haven't seen before. The only redeeming factor is we get to see Fishburne and Paxton bantering, which might make this worthwhile.
Set during the next ice age, an outpost of colonists struggle to survive below the world's frozen surface. Short on supplies, and plagued by illness and internal conflict, the colonists suspect the worst when they mysteriously lose contact with their only other known settlement. Kevin Zegers, Charlotte Sullivan co-star.
The Colony is directed by American filmmaker Jeff Renfroe, of the films Civic Duty and One Point O. The screenplay is by Renfroe, Patrick Tarr and Pascal Trottier. The first film shot in the former NORAD base 60 stories underground. The Colony will be out in Canada in April, but no US date yet. For more see Facebook.
