Watch The Chillingly Creepy Trailer For Jeff Renfroe’s THE COLONY
Filmed 60 stories underground, THE COLONY is an ice-cold sci-fi thriller starring Laurence Fishburne and Bill Paxton. Here’s your first look at the official poster and trailer for the film before it hits theaters April 12th.
Such a disquieting preview! Looks like Award-winning director Jeff Renfroe (One Point Zero, Civic Duty) has delivered an action-packed, post-apocalyptic movie with his icy thrill ride.
Set during the next ice-age, an outpost of colonists struggle to survive below the world’s frozen surface. Short on supplies, and plagued by illness and internal conflict, the colonists suspect the worst when they mysteriously lose contact with their only other known settlement, Colony 5. When Colony 7’s leader Briggs (Laurence Fishburne – Contagion, The Matrix Trilogy) decides to lead an expedition to discover what happened, he is challenged by Mason (Bill Paxton – Aliens, Twister), his former comrade-in-arms, who has his own ideas of what is best for the colonists.
Briggs takes two volunteers on the mission, the young Graydon, and Sam (Kevin Zegers – Fifty Dead Men Walking, TV’s Gossip Girl), a strong-willed mechanic who seizes the opportunity to confront the icy wasteland that orphaned him. When they reach their destination, the team discover a threat much worse than nature and must battle to save themselves and protect their fellow colonists in what might be humanity’s last stand.
A riveting, intense story of survival, humanity, and desperation, THE COLONY is a rich addition to the post-apocalyptic action genre.
