High Octane Pictures is debuting their new action thriller Inferno: Skyscraper Escape on VOD platforms early next month. It’s about a family that finds themselves trapped in the top floors of an exploding, fireball-filled skyscraper. And we’re sure a certain big-budget big-screen movie coming out around the same time has NOTHING TO DO with its existence. They’re clearly different: in this one, the husband doesn’t have a prosthetic leg.
In Inferno: Skyscraper Escape, disaster strikes a downtown skyscraper when a gas leak causes a ferocious explosion setting ablaze the towering mass of metal and glass. On the 20th floor Brianna and Tom, a couple in the middle of a divorce settlement, are forced to work together to help save their two children, Anne and Ben, who are both trapped in the building’s elevator hovering 20 stories above ground. Together Brianna and Tom must fight to stay alive while teaming up to save their children and escape the towering inferno.
Brinna and Tom are played by Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black, “Hawaii Five-O”) and Jamie Bamber (“Battlestar Galactica”, “Law & Order UK”) respectively. The movie also stars Riley Jackson (“Grace & Frankie”), Isaac Rouse (Monster Family), and Nigel Barber (Mission : Impossible – Rogue Nation).
Inferno: Skyscraper Escape was directed by Eric Summer (Leap!), and will be released on VOD July 3. Here’s a taste….
