Featuring a high quality cast including Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton, Jeff Renfroe’s The Colony proved an enjoyable slice of glossy post-apocalyptic schlock. Come January 20, 2014, UK punters can get a look-in as Entertainment One bring the flick home on DVD.
By 2045, humans have built weather machines to help control the devastating threat of global warming, but when these machines unexpectedly break down, the planet is plunged into sub-zero temperatures and sent into the next ice age. The lucky few that remain are forced to live underground in bunkers to escape the extreme cold.
Briggs (Laurence Fishburne) and Mason (Bill Paxton) are the leaders of one such bunker, Colony 7. After receiving a distress signal from a neighbouring bunker, Briggs decides to lead a dangerous mission into the frozen wasteland, accompanied by the strong-minded Sam (Kevin Zegers), determined to discover their fate. Upon arrival they discover a desolate place with walls covered in blood and a savage threat much worse than anything they’ve encountered before. If Briggs and his team are to ensure the continued existence of his colony, and survivors all-over, they must battle to save themselves and protect their fellow colonists in what might be humanity’s last stand.
Special features include a ‘Behind the Scenes’ featurette.
