'Doomsday' Opens on March 14th

originally posted January 7, 2008

Universal Pictures announced a March 14th release date for Doomsday, the new sci-fi horror movie from director Neil Marshall (The Descent).

Marshall also wrote the film, about a killer virus that necessitates the quarantining of an entire country.

The story picks up three decades later, when the dreaded Reaper virus escapes the walled-off nation and resurfaces in a major city.

An elite group of specialists, captained by Eden Sinclair (Rhona Mitra), is dispatched into the still-quarantined country to retrieve a cure by any means necessary. Shut off from the rest of the world, the unit must battle through a landscape that has become a waking nightmare. Bob Hoskins, Adrian Lester, Alexander Siddig and Malcolm McDowell co-star in the film.
