This trailer is for the sci-fi thriller The Colony. It’s about a group of people forced underground by the next ice age. This struggling outpost of survivors must fight to preserve humanity against a threat even more savage than nature.

“Set during the next Ice Age, The Colony follows an outpost of colonists who struggle to survive below the world’s frozen surface. Short on supplies and plagued by illness and internal conflict, the colonists suspect the worst when they mysteriously lose contact with their only other known settlement, Colony 5. When Colony 7′s leader Briggs (Laurence Fishburne) decides to lead an expedition to discover what happened, he is challenged by Mason (Bill Paxton), his former comrade-in-arms, who has his own ideas of what is best for the colonists. Briggs takes two volunteers on the mission, the young Graydon and Sam (Kevin Zegers), a strong-willed mechanic who seizes the opportunity to confront the icy wasteland that orphaned him. When they reach their destination, the team discover a threat much worse than nature and must battle to save themselves and protect their fellow colonists in what might be humanity’s last stand.”

The movie was written and directed by Jeff Renfroe. It stars Bill Paxton, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Zegers, Charlotte Sullivan, John tench, Atticus Dean Mitchell, Dru Viergever, Romano Orzari, and Earl Pastko.
