Published On July 9, 2018 | By Joe Gordon | Competitions, Film TV & Theatre

Genesis is a pretty interesting looking post-apocalyptic British science fiction film starring John Hannah, Olivia Grant and Chike Okonkwo, and it is coming out on digital download from Lionsgate on July 9th, and on DVD from July 16th. From the description:

“Prepare yourself for stellar British sci-fi adventure Genesis, as Man battles Machine in a desperate future.
The year is 2069. Mankind has been devastated by a chemical Armageddon. Forced to live underground where the air is breathable, the civilians, led by the charismatic Paul Brooks (John Hannah) survive in dire conditions, starving and pushed into slave labour.

As the civilian unrest grows, the politicians and scientists, led by Dr. Eve Gabriel (Olivia Grant) dedicate all resources to the construction of ABEL, a humanoid life-form, and mankind’s last hope. When the powerful A.I. Machine learns it preprogramed fate it is up to Eve and Paul to stop the catastrophic consequences as humanity’s future lies in the balance.

Starring Olivia Grant (Stardust), Chike Okonkwo, (The Birth of a Nation), Ed Stoppard (The Frankenstein Chronicles), Warren Brown (The Hatton Garden Job), John Hannah (The Mummy series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones), Wendy Glenn (You’re Next) and Paul Nicholls (Eastenders, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason).
