Watch the Opening Scene for the Apocalyptic Disaster Film THE DIVIDE

This new apocalypse senario film, The Divide, was developed by Hitman director Xavier Gens, and the film is set to premier on Sunday, March 13th as part of the Midnighters program at SXSW. The opening sequence of the film has been released online, and it looks pretty intense. 

Here's the synopsis:

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.

With twists and turns throughout, and no way of knowing who will make it out alive, THE DIVIDE is an action packed psychological thriller that combines 'Assault on Precinct 13' with 'Lord of the Flies'. To survive the end of the world, you first must survive each other...
