'The Colony' (Laurence Fishburne's Cannibal Thriller) Gets Theatrical, VOD Dates + Poster


Earlier this year, Image Entertainment (which is owned by Robert Johnson’s RLJ Entertainment company) picked up USA release rights to the sci-fi thriller The Colony, which stars Laurence Fishburne

Image has now revealed exact dates and release strategy for the film: it’ll first be available on VOD on August 22, which will be followed by a theatrical release on September 20, in a limited release in major markets.

We also have a look at the film’s theatrical release poster, which is embedded at the bottom of this post.

Budget at $16 million, and said to be the first film ever to be shot inside the former NORAD base buried 60 stories below the earth, the Canadian-produced film is directed by Jeff Renfroe, from a script he co-wrote with Patrick TarrPacal Trottier and Svet Rouskov

The story 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.
