On March 6th, Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) launches the intense, post-apocalyptic thrill-ride “Scorched Earth” on Blu-ray™ and DVD, on the heels of its February release in theaters, OnDemand and on digital HD.
Directed by Peter Howitt (“Sliding Doors,” “Laws of Attraction”), the film is set in the future after the planet has suffered an environmental collapse. The air became dangerous to breathe, the water became toxic, and billions of people died. Generations later, mankind has finally re-established a rudimentary society in which bounty hunters roam the wasteland in search of wanted eco-criminals.
Former MMA fighter Gina Carano (“Deadpool,” “Haywire,” “Fast & Furious 6”) stars as bounty hunter Attica Gage, who is faced with the bounty of a lifetime: bringing down the ruthless outlaw, Thomas Jackson (“Arrow”’s Ryan Robbins). Gage infiltrates Jackson’s gang, and everything is going to plan until she meets a slave girl (“Shadowhunters”’ Stephanie Bennett) who reminds her of her dead sister. With her loyalty to only herself now tested, Gage learns that there might be more to life than just survival.
Penned by Kevin Leeson and Bobby Mort (“The Colbert Report”) and produced by Leeson (“1922,” “The Confirmation”), Jamie Goehring (“1922,” “The Confirmation”), and Kevin Leslie (“The Unspoken”), the film also stars John Hannah (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “The Mummy” franchise), Dean S. Jagger (“Game of Thrones”), and Alisha Newton (“Heartland”).
