DOOMSDAY apparently -and unfortunately – evaded my attention for the past few weeks and I really need to have at least two different fingers chopped off for that. Neil Marshall, completely unknown in the cyberpunk/postapoc scene signs this as both director and screenwriter and he’s got the tough-ass chick vs epidemic meme spiced up with Mad Max and a hairless villain with a mohawk – very similar to John B himself. (Really.) IO9 has some extra scenes to soothe the thirst until the official debut on the 14th. Anyways, one of the best-looking fetish horde on the screens in the past years.
and mankind finally has an expiration date
Great Britain, 2007. A deadly plague, known as the “Reaper Virus,” has broken out, killing hundreds of thousands in its wake. In desperation, the British Government evacuates as many survivors as it can out of the infected area, and then builds a wall, preventing the remainder from escaping. Thirty years later, with the wall still up and the victims all but forgotten, the virus breaks out again. The Government decides to send a crack team of operatives, led by Major Eden Sinclair, into the hot zone to investigate the possibility of a cure.
