Armageddon - Lev Andropov (Screengrab)

Peter Stormare (above, Armageddon) is no stranger to sci-fi, horror and dark cinema, and seeing his name added to a new sci-fi horror called Rupture is certainly cause for celebration. A few more names have also been added to the cast, as confirmed in the below press release.

Matt WavishA keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
