Director Xavier Gens (Frontier(s), Hitman) starts off his next film with a bang. The Divide will premiere at SXSW festival this weekend and Twitch has provided us with the opening scene. We already showed you the teaser, and now you can check out the first scene below from the film starring Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Gamer, Rocky Balboa), Michael Biehn, and Rosanna Arquette (Crash, Pulp Fiction).
When a cataclysmic explosion devastates New York, eight strangers take refuge in the basement of their apartment building, a converted fallout shelter designed by their paranoid superintendent Mickey.
