This week in the DVD Den, a group of survivors forced underground by the next ice age must fight to preserve humanity against a threat even more savage than nature in the dismal sci-fi film, The Colony.
By 2045, humans have built weather machines to control the warming climate. The machines break down when one day it begins to snow and doesn’t stop. Whatever humans remain live in underground bunkers to escape the extreme cold. Their challenges are controlling disease and producing sufficient food.
Two soldiers, Briggs (Laurence Fishburne) and Mason (Bill Paxton) are the leaders of one such bunker, Colony 7. Briggs, Sam (Kevin Zegers) and Graydon (Atticus Dean Mitchell) travel to nearby Colony 5 after receiving a distress signal, which leads them to a startling discovery.
Directed by Jeff Renfroe, The Colony stars Fishburne, Zegers and Paxton.
