Doomsday Photos

July 12, 2007

Lesbo-erotic swordplay is pretty much my favorite thing

With a headline like that, normally you'd get photos like this. But since I'm feeling extra literal today, they're actually photos from Neil Marshall's upcoming movie, Doomsday. Here's the rundown:

"In the action-packed new thriller from writer/director Neil Marshall ("The Descent"), authorities brutally quarantine a country as it succumbs to fear and chaos when a virus strikes. The literal walling-off works for three decades – until the dreaded Reaper virus violently resurfaces in a major city. An elite group of specialists, captained by Eden Sinclair (Rhona Mitra), is urgently 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."

Now, normally I'd say, "How clever, you've recycled the plot of 28 Days Later and District B13." But what made The Descent a pretty good watch was the fact that it was really schlocky and sort of tongue in cheek. If he can bring the same sensibility to this, who knows. Plus, you know, tits.
