Anchor Bay Entertainment has officially announced the Blu-ray release of apocalyptic thriller Earth's Final Hours, starring Hamza Adam (Sanctuary), Julia Benson (SGU Stargate Universe), Cameron Bright (Twilight Saga: New Moon, Eclipse), Sage Brocklebank (Psych) and Bruce Davison (X-Men). The world edges toward destruction on April 2, 2013.
When bizarre radiation storms suddenly erupt, defense systems are wiped out, polar outposts are incinerated and space debris blasts holes through the planet. Amidst the chaos, a tough federal, a cool government scientist and his rebel genius son uncover a magnetospheric nightmare that could stop the Earth's rotation. Do a disgraced inventor and an archaic satellite hold the sole keys to our survival, or is the clock ticking towards the annihilation of mankind?
The Blu-ray edition of Earth's Final Hours features a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track. Special features have yet to be detailed.
Apocalyptic films are great ... of course, that doesn't include SeeFee (SyFy) flicks. This one, however, looks tolerable, and, at the very least, worth a bag of popcorn. I'm just wondering why there are only six or seven people in the movie who have any concerns about the end of the world.
You'd think that everyone else on the planet would have a clue, as well. When the earth stopped spinning, I'm pretty sure that every living being that has some fraction of mental capacity would be aware of that.
I may have to watch it to see if there is any real reason why the movie is in the middle of the woods with just a few people instead of in a big city like New York or L.A. It may be nothing more than the fact that their budget didn't allow them to hire anymore actors.
