We’ll All Go Together When We Go: The Divide Trailer

In today’s most anticipated and exciting trailer news — I know not what this Avengers is of which you speak — is this howlingly insane-looking apocalyptic one-set horror chamber drama, The Divide. It has everything one could ask for from cinema: Kyle Reese, that one guy from Heroes, and a January release date. Oh, and lots and lots and lots and lots of violence, apparently.

All kidding aside, this sort of does look good. I mean, sure, extremely violent and disturbing and not for the kids or the squeamish. But the premise is the kind of thing that could work as a play and could lead to some meaty, scenery-chewing acting, and it does raise an issue that not a lot of apocalyptic SF movies address: you have to think it’s not all Mel Gibson (or Viggo Mortenson, for you younguns) walking around in need of a shave and either brooding decoratively or eating dog food, there has to be a bit more flipping out, going bestial, and killing everyone than one normally sees.

So… what do you think? Do I need to lay off the coffee or does this look kind of awesome?
