Opening in theaters on January 13th is the new post-apocalyptic science-fiction thriller from French director Xavier Gens (Hitman) called The Divide.

Vance (Final Destination 5, The Hunt for Red October). 

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with actor Michael Biehn to talk about his work on The Divide. Biehn discussed the new film, working with director Xavier Gens, writing his own dialogue, creating his unique character, the uncomfortable on-set environment, and the actors actual hatred towards each other.

In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers - all tenants of a New York high-rise apartment - escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building's bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness. Each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows himself or herself to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape, even with no promise of salvation on the outside. 

The Divide opens in theaters on January 13th.
