More news out of AF as ScreenDaily writes that Roadshow Films has picked up US and UK rights to apocalyptic thriller These Final Hours from Celluloid Nightmares.

Zak Hilditch’s feature debut explores the question “What would you do on the last day on Earth?” through the eyes of a self-obsessed young man, played by Nathan Phillips, on his way to the party-to-end-all-parties.

Roadshow, which already had Australian rights, will sell the film on to third party distributors in each territory.

Joel Pearlman, managing director of Village Roadshow division Roadshow Films, did the deal with Celluloid’s Hengameh Panahi, who has also inked a separate Swiss deal with Praesens.

The well-received thriller earned Hilditch the Critics’ Award for Best Australian feature at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

    that looks so amazing. I love these kind of movies so much.

    At first glance before watching the trailer I thought this was just a typical APOCALYPSE! movie like all of the others, but holy shit this looks really good! Instead of being about the big explosion they clearly got the concept right: What would you do for those 12 hours before it ends? It looks pretty twisted yet realistic which always makes for a good movie. I’m hoping I’m right about this being really good, because it looks that way.
