The post-apocalyptic thriller The Day follows a group of five survivors, armed with shotguns and machetes, as they wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for shelter and food, in a world devoid of humanity. When they seek refuge in a seemingly abandoned farmhouse, they realize that they’re merely the prey when they set off a trap signaling a group of predators to their existence. The film stars Shawn Ashmore, Ashley Bell, Dominic Monaghan, Shannyn Sossamon, Cory Hardrict and Michael Eklund.
At the film’s press day, co-stars Ashley Bell and Dominic Monaghan talked about what led them to this film, the appeal of all the physical challenges, learning to properly wield the weapons, their personal weapons of choice to survive in a post-apocalyptic environment, and what they would miss most about society if it just all went away. Monaghan also talked about his recent and all-time favorite movies, while Bell gave a little tease about what fans can expect from The Last Exorcism 2. Check out what they had to say after the jump.
