Having racked up a mightily-impressive close-to 1.5 million hits on youtube for its intriguing trailer, British sci-fi shocker Beyond has finally got a release date.

The film will be available via digital download on December 15, before getting a fully-fledged DVD release on January 12.

Starring Richard Danum and Gillian MacGregor as alien invasion survivors attempting to eek out life in a ruined UK, the film’s official synopsis is as follows:

“For a brief moment in history, the world stood still. All eyes and minds focused on the skies and the colossal, unidentified object that was discovered on a collision course with Earth.

Now, shrouded in mystery, the vast alien spacecraft looms ominously in sight above Northern Europe bringing with it an uncertain future. Amidst the chaos of the ensuing global catastrophe one young couple, searching for their infant daughter, their lost relationship and the hope of salvation embark on a perilous journey across a beautiful but treacherous landscape.

They are driven on by hope, confronting their own demons while forced to survive in a world that stands on the brink of collapse.”

Written and directed by Joseph Baker and Tom Large, here’s the trailer:
