Watch: Sam Neill in the Trailer for Another Ice Age Movie: ICE
Is Sam Neill trying to make a comeback through indie action movies? That or he just needed to earn some extra money. Yep, it's The Day After Tomorrow all over again. Quiet Earth found a trailer for a movie called ICE that literally has the exact same plot as The Day After Tomorrow - a guy gets separated from his loved ones, crazy new ice age ravages the world, covering the UK in hundreds of feet of snow. And then it becomes an action movie. I can't quite decide if this looks better or worse than The Day After Tomorrow, but maybe I'll give it a shot because it's British and has a good cast: Stephen Moyer, Richard Roxburgh, Claire Forlani.
Watch the trailer for Nick Copus' environmental action movie ICE:
Environmentalist Thom Archer warns of a new ice age and points a finger at sinister energy giant Halo, who is drilling on the Greenland Glacier and causing it to melt. But his warnings are all ignored. So Thom realizes he must fight for his survival and the survival of Earth on his own. Based on James Follett's novel.
ICE is directed by British filmmaker Nick Copus, who's making his feature debut after working in TV for a while. The screenplay was written by fellow TV veteran Ray Harding. This was produced by Powercorp, the same company behind Crusoe and the UK's Day of the Triffids, and was shot entirely in New Zealand. We're not sure when to expect this, since it seems like an indie or straight-to-DVD release, but we'll let you know.

Things I like, most of the case, specifically Claire Corlani and the guy from True Blood. Also, it appears they they show more enviornment stuff and less people drama. Things I don't like, that they show a lot of people drama, i feel the rig is going to be a central location, and maybe a repititve storyline. But, I'd probably watch it, on dvd.

Whatchu talking about? Sam Neill gets plenty of work spruking "Meat and Livestock Australia" here on TV and he gets to work with oragutangs again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEZWrKLAqKk&feature=related "Meat - you'd be silly not to eat it''.

I could film frozen dog turds in stop-motion with a script by a 4 year old and it would be better than DAY AFTER TOMMOROW. Geez...talk about setting the bar low....

The Day After Tomorrow sucked, so why bother?

Trash, I think that's what things like this are called... Why is this even on here?

I think a feature-length "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow" would be better... This looks like a 70's era "ABC Movie of the Week.

This film looks awesome, I loved The Day After Tomorrow, I hope it's as good as that, nothing like a great disaster movie, if you don't like disaster movies go watch the X Factor.

Holy shit... Patrick effin Bergin? So that's what happens to dudes when they beat up on Julia Roberts on screen.

The Day After Tomorrow is better.
Robbie on Oct 29, 2010
the the story and acting don't look good at all - but the outdoor scenery looks pretty good and some of the action looks ok - i'll watch it as a rent (hopefully instant-watch off of netflix).

Piece. of. Crap.

Nice to see London at the centre of this rather than New York, but yeah The Day AFter Tomorrow all over again - wonder if this was hard to sell given that movie has already released?

if it was still about an ice age but minus the enviromentalist scare tactics shit it might have me interested but otherwise I couldn't be fucked. Global warming or climate change as they like to call it now is a load of shit just to make us all slaves.

DiR3cT - haha. You make me laugh. I bet you're american.

i'm with you No. 19 Hopefully in this one they won't be running from frost in a city where a pack of wolves has magically survived what everyone else couldn't. Day After Tomorrow was horrendous so I can't imagine this will be any better - unless they all start blowing each other away or something to survive

Sookie, NOOOOOO! I've come to the conclusion that Claire Forlani can't act, period. And pretty much any movie that she's in, is a guaranteed flop of dung.

This is the second movie after Skyline to use the Transformers sound and credits.

I love Sam neil. The tudors = epic But this movie doesnt look very good. I'm sure Sammy will do a fine job with what he has though.

#13 take a loaded 12 gauge put it in your mouth and pull the trigger. Hurry up before you contaminate the rest of the human race with your sperm.
JohnDoe on Oct 30, 2010
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA wow does that look stupid. Why do they keep trying to say global warming will cause another ice age? It's not true and everybody knows it. An action movie as silly environmentalist propaganda that no one will go to.
Stephen on Oct 30, 2010
Poor Sam... He deserves something better. Anyway, I'm afraid I'll have to watch it. Anything for Sam Neill 😉
