After the release of the quite frankly awesome red-band trailer earlier this week for Aftershock, now comes a less imaginative poster for the film. Arriving in limited US cinemas on May 10th, the film is yet to get a release date here in the UK, but my guess it we should hear something soon.
For now though, you can enjoy the new poster which features, naturally, an image of the Richter scale. A fairly obvious choice of artwork, and nowhere near as cool as the previous poster which had all the chaos and carnage on it.
Aftershock is directed by Nicolas Lopez. Roth will be starring alongside singer Selena Gomez and Ariel Levy, Nicolas Martinez, Lorenza Izzo, Natasha Yarovenko, Andrea Osvart and Miguel Asensio will also feature in the film. Roth and director Lopez wrote the script together, with Lopez recounting some of his own experiences from a devastating Earthquake in Chile in 2010.
Chile has it all: gorgeous landscapes, smokin’- hot women, cool dudes, great wine, and the wildest parties. For a hapless American tourist, nicknamed Gringo (Eli Roth) by his two Chilean pals Ariel (Ariel Levy) and Pollo (Nicolás Martínez), the trip has been heaven on earth — except that he just can’t hook up with the ladies. Gringo’s luck seems to change when the group meets a trio of babes — Russian model Irina (Natasha Yarovenko), non-stop party girl Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) and her serious sister Monica (Andrea Osvárt) — who agree to accompany them on a trip to the coastal town of Valparaíso. The new friends are having the best of times whooping it up in a dance club, until a violent earthquake brings the entire city down around them. With this one-time paradise now a landscape of death and destruction that’s seething with terror and panic, our unlucky heroes must run for their lives from looters, escaped convicts, and the inevitable aftershocks.
