A new scifi post-apocalyptic movie, The Colony. Survivors in an underground colony trying to get by during the next ice age (brought about by global warming and our attempts to hack a tech solution to it), get a message from another US-based colony asking for help. What from? Mutant cannibal crazies, of course.

Here be the official blurb…

Award-winning director Jeff Renfroe (One Point O, Civic Duty) delivers an action-packed, post-apocalyptic thriller in his icy feature THE COLONY. 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.
