French director Xavier Gens is returning to the big screen after his 2007 adaptation of Hitman with Timothy Olyphant – which might not get reviewed that well, but I thought was pretty awesome – with a post-apocalyptic thriller, The Divide, that looks like it should be excellent.

We got the interesting first poster for the film late last year, a few months ahead of its debut at SXSW earlier this year, after which it quickly got picked up by Anchor Bay Films for distribution in the States.

ShockTillYouDrop have now got a great new poster for the film to share with us, that gives us a look at how New York will look at the end of the world portrayed in this film. And it looks pretty damn awesome. The sky is ablaze, and the city looks to be engulfed in flames; and it’s just a matter of time before the buildings still standing are burned to the ground.

“In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers — all tenants of a New York high rise apartment — escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, and they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside.”

The cast includes Lauren German (Hostel: Part II), veteran Michael Biehn (The Terminator), and the awesome Milo Ventimiglia (TV’s Heroes), and if you’ve seen the teaser trailer (which I’ve embedded below for your viewing pleasure), then you’ll know this looks like it has quite a bit of potential. The film will be released in the US on 13th January next year, and though no UK release date has been announced yet, hopefully it will be coming to our screens early next year too. Without further ado, here’s the great new poster to enjoy, with the teaser trailer beneath it. As usual with the poster, click to enlarge.
