SXSW ’11: Internal Conflict Realized in Opening Scene From ‘The Divide’

To survive the end of the world…you must first survive each other…

Frontier(s) director Xavier Gens’ end of the world thriller The Divide is set to have its world premiere this coming weekend as the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. While a trailer was released late last year, this morning our friends at Twitch scored the opening scene from the post-apocalyptic thriller starring Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia, Rosanna Arquette, Courtney B. Vance, and LaurenGerman.

When a cataclysmic explosion devastates New York, eight strangers take refuge in the basement of their apartment building, a converted fallout shelter designed by their paranoid superintendent Mickey. With just three connecting rooms it’s barely big enough, but with stockpiles of food and water, the group are at least safe from the horrors outside, and they settle in and attempt to fathom the catastrophe that has ended the lives of so many of their loved ones.
