The Day Trailer Instagrams The Apocalypse

By Josh Tyler | Published

Remember that scene in The Road where Viggo Mortensen and his son get trapped in a house owned by cannibals, and they have to get out before they’re discovered and eaten by wandering sub-humans? Well the first trailer for The Day is kind of like that, but with a hot girl shower scene and a lot of guns. Just because it’s the end of the world doesn’t mean there’s not time to play creepy music and photograph babes naked.

Here’s the first trailer for The Day

The above teaser isn’t exactly clear on the film’s nature so here’s a quick rundown on what it’s about: The movie takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where things have gone horribly wrong, there is no law, and people are pretty much left to fend for themselves. But it’s not really about any of that. That’s really just backstory. The Day actually takes place over a single, 24-hour period in which a small group of survivors are under siege from a bunch of guys who most identified with Lord Humungus when they used to watch The Road Warrior.

It stars former teen Iceman Shawn Ashmore and former Hobbit Dominic Monaghan, which if you know what those guys look like, means this is the shortest cast you’ll find any non-yellow-brick-roaded movie being released in the next few years.

Here’s a few new photos from the film…

Expect The Day in theaters this August in the United States. Expect it in theaters last year if hang out in the Great White North.
