The Divide Food Drive Details
Anchor Bay Films has teamed up with Feeding America Food Banks to conduct a canned food drive in conjunction with the January 13, 2012 release of Xavier Gens’ new film, the unrated post-apocalyptic thriller, The Divide.
In a tongue-in-cheek allusion to the canned goods needed for survival in the film, the first 50 people in each market attending the opening night midnight screenings who bring a donation of canned goods will receive a limited edition poster for the film designed by Mondo-commissioned street artist “Jock.”
The canned food drive will be held at the following theatres:
The Divide features a large and diverse cast featuring such icons of horror and sci-fi as Lauren German (Hostel Part 2), Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens), Milo Ventimiglia (NBC’s “Heroes”) and Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction). 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. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness. Each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows himself or herself to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape, even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
