The Apocalypse is back! Wynter Dark

Posted by Bryan White | Monday July 14, 2008 | News

You know? I’m really not sure what Wynter Dark is all about, but I spotted this on io9 and it sent my mind reeling. The above and below are concept art from an upcoming 20th Century Fox apocalypse movie.

Set 800 years in the future, in a world gripped by a devastating ice age, the Kingdom of New York is besieged by the Kindom of London and the Empire of Neo Tokyo in a bitter battle for freedom. Don’t know when they will start filming.

Kingdom of New York? Kingdom of London? Empire of Neo Tokyo? Holy shit! Then again, this could over like Reign of Fire, which I’m still pissed about. The poster had dragons fighting Apache helicopters and I saw no such thing. Click on the images for a better look. Bask in their potential glory. That shot of New York is totally awesome! I’m going to be keeping an eye on this one. Seems like cutural fears about climate change are fueling the latest wave of post-apocalyptic movies. Also coming soon are The Day The Earth Stood Still and 2012.

    Concept art looks stunning. I’m really interested in seeing how this develops.

    My favorite part of all of this is the Kingdon of New York. I’m really hoping that there’s a Duke of New York. A #1!

    Then again, I liked REIGN OF FIRE. Perhaps it’s only because I saw it in tandem with EIGHT-LEGGED FREAKS.

    But this looks like a lot of fun…
