The critically praised film will get the New Year off to a horrific start.
Vertical Entertainment and Redbox Entertainment are releasing SHADOW IN THE CLOUD to select theaters, VOD and digital platforms January 1. The film, which won strong reviews and a People’s Choice Midnight Madness Award from this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, was directed by Roseanne Liang from a script she wrote with Max Landis, and stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Nick Robinson, Beulah Koale, Taylor John Smith, Callan Mulvey, Benedict Wall, Joe Witkowski, Byron Coll. The synopsis: “In the throes of World War II, Captain Maude Garrett [Moretz] joins the all-male crew of a B-17 bomber with a top-secret package. Caught off guard by the presence of a woman on a military flight, the crew tests Maude’s every move. Just as her quick wit is winning them over, strange happenings and holes in her backstory incite paranoia surrounding her true mission. But this crew has more to fear…lurking in the shadows, something sinister is tearing at the heart of the plane. Trapped between an oncoming air ambush and an evil lurking within, Maude must push beyond her limits to save the hapless crew and protect her mysterious cargo.”
