March 21, 2007 – LOS ANGELESâ€¦ Fox Atomic is set to debut the trailer for 28 WEEKS LATER, the highly anticipated sequel to horror classic 28 DAYS LATER, only in theaters on March 23, 2007. Audiences will finally be able to catch their first glimpse of the film on the front of another chilling Fox Atomic release, THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2.
In 2002, movie-lovers everywhere were enraptured with 28 DAYS LATER, a unique and terrifying film by audience and critical favorite Danny Boyle. With Boyle in the role of producer, he handpicked Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (Intacto) to helm this next chapter, out in theaters on May 11.
28 WEEKS LATER, the follow-up to the terrifically successful 28 Days Later, picks up six months after the rage virus has annihilated the British Isles. The army declares that the war against infection has been won, and that the reconstruction of the country can begin…but they could not be more wrong. As the first wave of refugees return and a family is reunited, a terrible secret is revealed: The virus is not yet dead, and this time, it is more dangerous than ever. Robert Carlyle, Catherine McCormack, Rose Byrne, Jeremy Renner, Idris Elba, and Harold Perrineau lead the talented cast which also includes newcomers Mackintosh Muggleton and Imogen Poots. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo directs, while Danny Boyle, director of the first film, is an executive producer.
Audiences can only see the trailer when they head out to theaters to see another terrifying film, THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2, on March 23. This film, produced by the Master of Horror himself Wes Craven, is yet another bloodcurdling film to add to his amazing catalog.
In THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2, a unit of National Guard soldiers stop at a New Mexico outpost, as a part of a routine mission, only to find the isolated research camp mysteriously deserted. After spotting a distress signal on a distant mountain range, the team decides to commence a search and rescue mission into the hills. Little do they know that these are the very hills that the ill-fated Carter family once visited, and that a tribe of cannibalistic mutants lies in wait. And this time, there is an even larger force of evil at work that is intent on the soldiers’ very destruction. Co-written by horror master Wes Craven and his son Jonathan Craven, Fox Atomic’s THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2 is directed by Martin Weisz. The film features a young and talented cast, including Michael McMillian, Jessica Stroup, Jacob Vargas, Flex Alexander, Lee Thompson Young, Daniella Alonso, Eric Edelstein, Reshad Strik, and Ben Crowley.
