Happy weekend, everyone! Let’s close out this week with a contest exclusively for those in our hometown city of Toronto. Dork Shelf and eOne Films want to send ten lucky winners and a guest to a special advance screening of the Canadian made sci-fi thriller THE COLONY on Wednesday, April 3rd at 7:00pm with actors Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Zegers, and director Jeff Renfroe in attendance!
Award-winning director Jeff Renfroe (One Point Zero, 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. A riveting, intense story of survival, humanity, and desperation, THE COLONY is a rich addition to the post-apocalyptic action genre.
