WWE Studio's The Day traps itself a clip

I love professional wrestling and I love movies. So why do I not love any of WWE Studio’s films? Though I kind of dug THE MARINE and 12 ROUNDS for their cheesy action, the studio has yet to really wow me with any of releases.

THE DAY might just turn that around. It’s one of the first WWE Studios releases not to feature any wrestlers currently under their contract. This is probably for the best, even though I enjoy seeing their muscle bound actors struggle to emote while kicking ass. Actually having a stable of legitimate actors-- Dominic Monaghan, Shannyn Sossamon, Ashley Bell-- gives the film a lot more legitimacy.

I’m excited for this mashup of I AM LEGEND and THE ROAD, though the washed out color filters at play bug the shit out of me. That’s okay, I suppose, as THE DAY'S premise, action scenes and dynamite cast are too enticing not to pass up. The film was acquired at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival and is set for theatrical release August 29th. Check out the clip (below), a synopsis (also below), poster (also-also below) and the trailer (you get it).

“A group of five survivors, armed with shotguns, axes and machetes, wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for refuge in The Day, a terrifying look into a post-apocalyptic future. As war ravages humanity, destroying civilization and most of life on earth, the survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. Lost, starving, and exhausted, they seek shelter in a seemingly safe abandoned farmhouse. However, while searching for food and resources, they unwittingly set off a trap signaling to their ruthless predators lying in wait to begin their deadly attack. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must make a desperate final stand—over a 24 hour period—battling for their ultimate survival.”

Extra Tidbit: Shannyn Sossamon (above) should be in more movies.
