Army of the Dead gave us a pretty big breakout star in Nora Arnezeder. She stars in The Colony, a new sci-fi drama about humans returning to Earth after an ecological disaster. Here’s the synopsis for the upcoming film:
Cataclysmic conditions on Earth forced a mass exodus to a distant planet. Generations later, a manned mission hurtles back to assess living conditions on the desolate, mostly submerged world. The sole survivor of the expedition is attacked by a violent band of scavengers, themselves locked in battle with a far more sinister foe. Now, mankind’s very survival depends on the bravery and ingenuity of the lone astronaut.
The Colony also stars Sarah-Sofie Boussnina, Iain Glen, Sebastian Roché, and Joel Basman. It’s written and directed by Tim Fehlbaum and Mariko Minoguchi. It releases in theaters, VOD, and digital on August 27th, 2021.
This one is giving off some Alien and Oblivion vibes to it. The people of Earth might not be exactly what the colonists are describing. We’ll have to see if there’s more than meets the eye with this one.
So, what do you think of The Colony? Are you excited to see this one? It seems like a decent sci-fi flick.
