Earth has been decimated by climate change, pandemics, and war. Years after the ruling elite escaped to another planet, a mission was launched to find out if a return to an uninhabited Earth were possible. That mission was lost. Now, a lone astronaut (NORA ARNEZEDER) in search of answers struggles to survive the hostile planet, and she must ultimately make a choice that will seal the fate of the wasteland’s remaining populace.



This release comes with a very glossy slip cover and inside a redemption code for the Digital HD copy. Features only include an Audio Commentary with Co-Writer/Director Tim Fehibaum and Visions of the Future: Making The Colony (19:26) featurette.


VIDEO – 4¼/5, AUDIO – 4/5

Lionsgate enters The Colony onto Blu-ray and is presented with a 2.39 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. For the most part the picture does look quite good even though this is fairly low budget sci-fi drama, detail is pretty fine throughout and colors are on the muted side with the barren landscape the movie mostly takes place on.

The disc includes a basic but still effective enough DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track providing for clear dialogue levels and some modest depth for the front and rear speakers, reserved for the score and any ambient and nature sounds.
