We already shared the first official trailer for the Jeff Renfroe-directed film, so I’m sure you know that the story is set during the next ice age, and revolves around an outpost of colonists who struggle to survive below the world’s frozen surface.
Fishburne plays Briggs and Paxton stars as Mason – the leaders of one underground bunker – Colony 7, and their challenges are controlling disease and producing sufficient food. 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.
Here’s the rest of the story:
When Briggs decides to lead an expedition to discover what happened, he is challenged by Mason, 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, 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.
Also starring Kevin Zegers as Sam, and Charlotte Sullivan as Kai, The Colony is set to hit limited theaters on August 23rd, 2013.
