December 16: The Day the Earth Stopped

Thursday, December 11th, 2008 @ 5:21 am | Headline, Releases

Prove the value of human civilization or be destroyed…

C. Thomas Howell directs and stars in The Asylum’s latest mockbuster THE DAY THE EARTH STOPPED, which will premiere on DVD on Decemember 16, 2008.

Unlike a certain major studio release that has a suspiciously similar title (we suspect that the majors have spies digging through our trash), our movie features hundreds of giant robots, that guy from The Breakfast Club, and a hot naked chick.

Rent THE DAY THE EARTH STOPPED at your local video store next Tuesday.

In the meantime, watch the new and improved trailer here.

      Come out to Burbank, California’s DARK DELICACIES bookstore, grab your copy of the film before it’s released, and have the cast sign it for you!

      Cameron Bender, Bug Hall, Sinead McCafferty, Stephanie Greco, Jonathan Sanders, William Morey, and Daniel Inkles are all confirmed to appear.

      “Hot naked chick” sounds interesting (I have pre-ordered the movie anyway). The trailer is your best yet.
      But talking about cuties: When will we see Wittley Jourdan again?

      hey is it possible to sue a production company for making me wanna kill my self?

      i mean for god sakes… where the fuck should i begin?!?
      i only managed to watch the 1st 10min, then i kept skipping scenes in order to see if this is gonna make sense soon.
      unfortunately it didnt and further more i think i got a brain damage.

      i mean like at 1st i was like “uw nice, ships in space” and then this giant robot.. in the middle of the city..
      and its like the only army in the enitre erea are only 4 black vans?.. where’s the fucking army, the freaking jet fighters, the confused president that dosnt know if to shoot or negotiate with them. I MEAN WTF 4 BLACK VANS!!!!!
      oh sure a guy had to piss thats awesome.. god i really hope u can understand sarcasm.

      hey you know that bme pain olympics shit? and the winner in there, the guy that cut off his own balls and dick.
      i thought thats disturbing..
      ide rather see that any day instead of seeing this film again..

      and another thing.. whats up with the 20,000 alien ships coming from the end of the galaxy just to.. see that earth is nice?.. please… befor making any movies.. READ BOOKS!! know some basics physics, aspecialy some space phyisics cause ur just emberessing ur selfs and make the people who watch the movie wanna kill them selfs

      befor publishing such movies please think of the results.. u might hurt incoent people..

      Come on everyone, leave The Asylum alone. They have a fanbase and are popular. If they weren’t, they wouldn’t continue to make films and also no doubt make a profit. Personally I enjoyed the film, it won’t change the world…’s just a movie. It’s escapism pure and simple!!!!

      Oh yes and Sinead McCafferty is very pleasant on the eye!!!!

    13. Jubes Says:

    14. Chrissy Says:

      Watched the film not bad but I need to know the music played at the end of the film with the girl singing it was beautiful.

    15. Ranchero Says:

    16. Matt Says:
