Legendary filmmaker Barry Levinson (The Natural, Rain Man, Toys, Wag the Dog) will participate in a panel during New York Comic-Con for his upcoming ecological disaster thriller The Bay, on Saturday, October 13th at 2:15 PM. This marks Levinson’s first appearance at New York Comic-Con and one of the director’s first appearances at a popular culture convention of this kind ever.
Two million fish washed ashore. One thousand blackbirds dropped from the sky. On July 4, 2009 a deadly menace swept through the quaint seaside town of Claridge, Maryland, but the harrowing story of what happened that Independence Day has never been told – until now.
From Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson and the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes this nerve-shredding tale of a small town plunged into absolute terror. The authorities believed they had buried the truth about the tragedy that claimed over 700 human lives. Now, three years later, a reporter has emerged with footage revealing the cover-up and an unimaginable killer: a mysterious parasitic outbreak.
Told from the perspective of those who were there and saw what happened, The Bay unfolds over 24 hours though people’s iPhones, Androids, 911 calls, web cams, and whatever else could be used to document the nightmare in Claridge.
The Bay stars Kristen Connolly, Jane McNeill, Christopher Denham, Michael Beasley, Kether Donohue, Anthony Reynolds, James Patrick Freetly, Andy Stahl, John Harrington Bland, Stacy Rabon, Lauren Cohn, Andrew R. Kaplan, Jody Thompson, Stephen Kunken, and Frank Deal. The movie hits theaters and On Demand November 2nd, 2012 from Roadside Attractions.
