An update on the indie apocalypse movie The Battle for Bunker Hill, whose making was profiled in depth here on the site. A company called New World Distribution just announced they will be releasing the movie:
New World Distribution releases “The Battle for Bunker Hill” worldwide on Google Play, You Tube Movie Rentals, Viaway, Amazon, Sony Playstation and I-tunes with many more platforms to follow. NWD will also be taking the film to the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
“The Battle for Bunker Hill” begins its story when former Wall Street executive Peter Salem is released from prison. Peter heads for the small town of Bunker Hill, Kansas, where his ex-wife and their children have started a new life. Soon after he arrives in town, all power is lost – there is no electricity, and cars and computers suddenly shut down. Community leaders are at a loss to explain. Is it the rapture? A massive terrorist attack? Aliens?
Cut off from the world, the town’s militant past is reawakened and forces coalesce to protect citizens from an unseen enemy, represented to some by Mr. Farook, an elderly Pakistani immigrant who owns the local convenience store. The town’s fear leads to the creation of a posse of gunmen, resulting in torture, illegal searches and eventually murder.
The film includes a stellar cast of Saeed Jaffrey (Gandhi), James McDaniel (NYPD Blue), Laura Kirk (Lisa Picard is Famous) and Blake Robbins (The Office).
