Teaser Trailer and Synopsis for New Sci-Fi Thriller The Divide
05.26.10 by BJSprecher
After turning in an adequate, if forgettable, adaptation of the popular Hitman video game series in 2007's Hitman, director Xavier Gens' new movie, The Divide (formerly The Fallout), looks promising. Currently in production, The Divide is a sci-fi thriller about the aftermath of an attack on New York. The ensemble cast includes Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia,
Lauren German and Rosanna Arquette, as well as several newcomers.
Here's the plot synopsis from Teaser-Trailer.com:
When a cataclysmic explosion devastates New York, eight strangers take refuge in the basement of their apartment building, a converted fallout shelter designed by their paranoid superintendent Mickey. With just three connecting rooms it’s barely big enough, but with stockpiles of food and water, the group are at least safe from the horrors outside, and they settle in and attempt to fathom the catastrophe that has ended the lives of so many of their loved ones.
But suddenly men in HAZMAT suits storm their shelter and open fire. The strangers join forces in a desperate bid to take on this enemy, with no one understanding what these HAZMATS are looking for and what drives them to be so merciless. With fatalities on both sides and the remaining HAZMATS temporarily pushed back and locked out, the worst is yet to come for the group. Cabin fever sets in as the perception of the shelter shifts from safe-haven to claustrophobic rat-trap.
The teaser trailer, with shades of Cloverfield and Quarantine, does a good job of depicting the fearful, panicky state of the survivors without giving too much away.
