I’m always up for a big SFX-laden apocalyptic disaster movie — and The Asylum’s current in-production effort along those lines involves the imminent ripping apart of the Earth by a massive seismic disturbance. The film’s called Megafault (US-[in production]; dir. David Michael Latt) — and though it will feature limited SFX compared to, say, Emmerich’s upcoming mega-spectacular disaster blockbuster, 2012, it still interests me, even if for no other reason than to find out what kind of pseudo-scientific goobledegook the main characters (played by Brittany Murphy, Eriq La Salle, Bruce Davison and Justin Hartley) must resort to in order to deal with a natural disaster of that magnitude. And, of course, to see some city destruction…
A seismologist and a miner must stop a massive earthquake that threatens to tear the world in half.
In the meantime, producer and writer Paul Bales has supplied us with three brief SFX clips in order to introduce this lastest End-of-the-World epic.
