"Fight Or Die" First Official Trailer For The Day

No comments: Links to this post


















After 2 years travelling the festival circuit its 'fight or die' with the first official trailer for The Day. Douglas Aarniokoski’s post-apocalyptic finally found a home (well at least in USA) and a official release date thanks to WWE Studios (yes that Vince McMahon Wrestling company) and Anchor Bay Films but we can't complain this film deserves a release and in a time of economic strains you can't complain.

The film does have a few familiar faces  with Ashley Bell (Last Exorcism) leading the light along with Dominic Monaghan (Lord Of The Rings, Lost), indie horror favourite Shawn Ashmore (Frozen, X-Men), Shannyn Sossamon(one missed call) and Corey Hadict (Gran Torino). The story is simple  5 survivors trying to survive post apocalyptic earth armed with guns& knives they roam the land tired, hungry sleeping in old barns. The group decide to investigate an old house for food or anything of use unaware they have just triggered an alarm to signal for the home owners return and now the 5 must prepare for a battle for survival.

You ave to go away back to December 2010 when we brought the film's promo teaser trailer which teased us  but not revealing much, the new trailer does however give you a little more of a idea of the story. As I said the story is simple as it doesn't delve into why the world is like what is in the film, nor does it delve into background of the characters stories, it's all about survival. If you were fortunate to be in Glasgow late February you would have enjoyed the film's only UK screening at Film4 Frightfest @ Glasgow Film festival. Over the weekend it was one of the top 3 favourite films of the frighfesters along with China Brothers Crawl and The Raid,the film is gritty plenty of tension, gore  and a superb ending PA fans will appreciate.


Once we get word of the UK release I will write my review but American PA fans forget about the WWE Studio side of things The Day is a superb indie film you should check out when it's released August 29th.

A group of five survivors, armed with shotguns, axes and machetes, wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for refuge in The Day, a terrifying look into a post-apocalyptic future. As war ravages humanity, destroying civilization and most of life on earth, the survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. Lost, starving, and exhausted, they seek shelter in a seemingly safe abandoned farmhouse. However, while searching for food and resources, they unwittingly set off a trap signaling to their ruthless predators lying in wait to begin their deadly attack. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must make a desperate final stand–over a 24 hour period–battling for their ultimate survival.

Twitch have gotten there hands on the first teaser trailer for Douglas Aarniokoski’s Post Apoclapytic THE DAY. We dont know much aout the movie apart from its based around a group of young people whom survived a apocalyptic event and the cast the movie has ensembled is one of the things that caught my eye.
The movie stars Dominic Monaghan (The Lord Of The Rings, Lost), Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism), Shawn Ashmore (Frozen, The Ruins, X-Men), Shannyn Sossamon (One Missed Call, How To Make It In America) and Cory Hardrict (Battle: Los Angeles, Gran Torino) and the movie is due to be released in 2011. As for UK & Ireland I dont know how much of a release cinematically it’ll get depending on the distributor (if any) it’ll get but I can see the movie getting a limited release then staright to dvd, but its early days.
What I really like about the this trailer is that it does what a good teaser trailer should do telling you alot about the movie with spoiling the sory apart from giving you the basics making you want to see more. What I do also like is the post rock soundtrack which comes from explosionsinthesky and I get that dark gritty PA feel like we got with GodSpeed My Black Emperor! 28 Days Later soundtrack, the right choice for the movie genre.

trailer after the break....
