Director Xavier Gens' The Divide was one of the most talked about films on the festival circuit last year, so those of us who weren't able to attend many film festivals in 2011 have cause to rejoice – the movie is finally getting a proper nationwide theatrical release on Friday, January 13th. To celebrate, after the break, we've got three new clips from The Divide for your viewing pleasure.
What's The Divide about? Here's the official description from Anchor Bay…
"A post-apocalyptic thriller in which nine survivors face the reality that being trapped in an underground bunker together may be just as dangerous as the world outside, The Divide stars Michael Biehn, Rosanna Arquette, and Laura German, and is directed by Xavier Gens.
"In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers—all tenants of a New York high-rise apartment—escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building's bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness. Each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows himself or herself to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape, even with no promise of salvation on the outside."
