Laurence Fishburne Leads In First Trailer For Sci-Fi Thriller ‘The Colony’

Laurence Fishburne Leads In First Trailer For Sci-Fi Thriller 'The Colony'

I haven’t noticed much press for this film, other than what we’ve written about it since we started following it, a year or so ago.

It’s scheduled to be released in theaters on April 12 – about 3 weeks from now – but in Canada! No word yet on when (or if) it’ll hit the USA. Although given the talent in front of the camera, I think, at a minimum, a VOD/DVD release in the USA will happen.

Image Entertainment picked up USA release rights to the sci-fi thriller The Colony, which stars Laurence Fishburne.

The $16 million Canadian production is directed by Jeff Renfroe, from a script he co-wrote with Patrick TarrPacal Trottier and Svet Rouskov, and it centers on a group of underground survivors fighting to survive after the next Ice Age, fending off an invasion of feral cannibals.

Bill Paxton co-stars with Fishburne.

Paul Barkin, Matthew Cervi and Pierre Even produced. 

Here’s the first trailer:
