Alien Extinction (aka: Age of Tomorrow) on DVD in January

26 November 2015

Mankind must fight to survive as Earth is invaded by hostile UFOs bent on destroying the planet.
As the epic battle wages on, astronauts sneak aboard the mothership where they discover a portal to the aliens' home world and manage to alert Earth before being brutally murdered. Left with no other choice, Earth sends an elite military team of science and combat specialists through the portal where they attempt to stop the invasion from the inside out.

If the title Alien Extinction is not familiar – you won't find a trace of it on IMDb – then that's because it's undergone one of those title changes for UK DVD release that Metrodome seems to be strangely fond of. Here it's perhaps understandable, given that the original title was Age of Tomorrow. try looking that one up and the current 2.0 user score will expalin everything. A prime example of what B-movie aficionados have taken to labelling 'mockbusters', low-budget cash-ins on the year's big summer blockbusters (Age of Tomorrow was hanging on to the coat tails of the Tom Cruise biggie Edge of Tomorrow), it's only managed an 8% audience approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has attracted some seriously scathing reviews, plus a couple of enthusiastic cheers of support.

If that hasn't put you off then Alien Extinction comes to UK DVD on 4th January 2016 from Metrodome at the RRP of £14.99.
