Here's a new movie trailer for an apocalyptic environmental thriller called Ice, which stars Stephen Moyer, Sam Neill, Frances O’Connor, Richard Roxburgh, Claire Forlani, Ben Cross, Simon Callow and Patrick Pergin.
I haven't heard of this film until today, but it looks a hell of a lot like The Day After Tomorrow, only much better. At the same time this seems like a very preachy environmental type movie. This is nothing we haven't already seen before.
The film was directed by Nick Copus who recently made the BBC version of The Day of the Triffids.
Here’s an detailed synopsis of the film from The Quiet Earth:
ICE sees the destructive effects of climate change cause unimaginable devastation and panic worldwide as the human race finds itself contemplating the dawn of a new ice age.
It is 2020. Findings by environmental scientist Professor Thom Archer suggest that Halo, the corporate energy company drilling on the Greenland Glacier are causing it to melt. Archer’s warnings are ignored, so he heads to the Arctic to find indisputable evidence. Upon arrival, he realises humankind is under immediate threat, and races home to save hisfamily.
The glacier collapses, with devastating consequences. Astonishing weather patterns emerge and plunge the world’s temperatures into steep decline. ICE confronts a wholly terrifying and plausible natural disaster of epic proportions. This uncompromising production sees a planet on the brink of annihilation, unleashing an apocalypse with an intensity and magnitude audiences will never forget.
