Watch: The Day Trailer Goes Post-Apocalyptic

Aw, the end of the world. The concept rarely conjures up images of floating through the clouds in some stony bliss. And forget about those left behind… Post-apocalyptic thriller The Day doesn't appear to spare calamity at least with this group of unlucky souls who find themselves in some backwater. The trailer has a hefty share of axes, knives, guns, machetes, slashes and grunts to feed your inner-misanthrope.

The Day stars Shawn Ashmore, Ashley Bell, Michael Eklund, Cory Hardrict, Dominic Monaghan and Shannyn Sossamon and opens August 29th via Anchor Bay Films. Check out their official synopsis and the trailer below:

A group of five survivors, armed with shotguns, axes and machetes, wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for refuge in The Day, a terrifying look into a post-apocalyptic future. As war ravages humanity, destroying civilization and most of life on earth, the survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. Lost, starving, and exhausted, they seek shelter in a seemingly safe abandoned farmhouse. However, while searching for food and resources, they unwittingly set off a trap signaling to their ruthless predators lying in wait to begin their deadly attack. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must make a desperate final stand—over a 24 hour period—battling for their ultimate survival.
