Hungry for some mutant killing action? Honestly, who isn’t? Why back in my day any critter with more than two eyes would find themselves on the business end of a shotgun. Things just haven’t been the same since the bomb dropped … what? Oh yeah, sorry.
Magnet Releasing (a Wagner/Cuban Company and a division of Magnolia Pictures) is giving fans many an opportunity to check out Simon Hunter’s “>The Mutant Chronicles (review)! As part of the Wagner/Cuban Companies’ Ultra VOD program, the sci-fi horror actioner will premiere on VOD on Friday, March 27th, 2009, followed by a theatrical release in select cities on Friday, April 24th.
Check out the official synopsis below:
“Mutant Chronicles is set in the year 2707, on an unrecognizable Earth where a war is raging between four giant corporations who control the planet as they battle over the planet’s dwindling resources. This war is soon rendered irrelevant when an errant bomb shatters an ancient buried seal, releasing a horrific mutant army from its prison deep within the earth. As the mutant scourge threatens human extinction, a squad of ragged soldiers, led by Mitch Hunter (Thomas Jane), descends into the earth in a last ditch effort to destroy the mutants and save mankind.
“Mutant Chronicles is a blast,” said Magnolia Pictures President Eamonn Bowles. “It’s an action-packed thriller with a dynamite cast and very impressive production values. We’re thrilled to add it to Magnet’s slate of quality genre pictures.”
The film sports a pretty impressive genre pedigree thanks to a cast that includes Thomas Jane, John Malkovich, Ron Perlman, Sean Pertwee, Devon Aoki and Shauna MacDonald. Keep your eyes out for this one!
