Bill Paxton Stars in THE COLONY, Coming to Blu-ray/DVD 10/15
Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand, has officially announced the release of THE COLONY on DVD, Blu-rayTM and Digital Download on Oct. 15, 2013 from Director Jeff Renfroe (One Point O). Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix), Bill Paxton (Aliens) and Kevin Zegers (Dawn of the Dead) headline an all-star cast in this savage and unrelenting thriller about mankind's greatest enemy: himself. Written by Patrick Tarr (American Psycho), Pascal Trottier (Blind Fear) and Svet Rouskov (Silent Cargo), THE COLONY will be available on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and Blu-rayTM for $29.97.
THE COLONY opens as an endless winter engulfs Earth. Humans struggle to survive in remote underground outposts. When Colony seven receives a distress call from a nearby settlement, Sam (Zegers) and Briggs (Fishburne) race through the snow on a dangerous rescue mission. What they find at the desolate base could mean mankind's salvation-or its total annihilation. Terrifying discoveries will unfold that will change the rules of survival forever.
THE COLONY was produced by Paul Barkin, Matthew Cervi, Pierre Even and Marie-Claude Poulin and executive produced by Peter Graham, Marc Schaberg, Noah Segal and Mark Slone.
