London, UK – Content Media is set to release Virus Breakout Thriller “Pandemic” on major VOD platforms in the UK and Ireland on Monday 23rd May 2016. The first-person shooter movie stars Alfie Allen (“Game of Thrones”), Mekhi Phifer (“Insurgent”), Missi Pyle (“Gone Girl”), Rachel Nichols (“Star Trek”), Paul Guilfoyle (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Danielle Rose Russell (“Aloha”) and Pat Healy (Captain America: The Winter Soldier).


Set in the near future, a zombie virus of epic proportions has overtaken the planet. There are more infected than uninfected, and humanity is losing its grip on survival. Its only hope is finding a cure and keeping the infected contained. Lauren (Rachel Nichols) is a doctor, who, after the fall of New York, comes to Los Angeles to lead the charge in the hunt for uninfected civilian survivors. Lauren’s objective is simple – lead her team into the field and rescue survivors.


Lauren and her team: Gunner (Mekhi Phifer), Denise (Missi Pyle) and Wheeler (Alfie Allen) put on their anti-contamination suits, complete with cameras so their experiences can be used for research, and leave the compound. But nothing could have prepared them for the mayhem they are about to walk into…


Pandemic” was directed by John Suits from a script by Dustin T. Benson, and produced by New Artists Alliance founders Gabriel Cowan and John Suits. It was filmed on location In Los Angeles, CA, and was released in the U.S. in theaters and VOD platforms by XLrator Media on 1st April 2016.


John Suits says: “Growing up as a fan of First Person Shooters, I’d always been fascinated by the concept of melding the perspectives into narrative storytelling, When I first came across the script for “Pandemic” I was immediately hooked and desperately wanted to make the film. The actors had to treat the camera like a character. The cast was amazing and completely up to the task.”


Get ready for “Pandemic” when it releases in the UK and Ireland on major VOD platforms courtesy of Content Media, and on DVD through Platform Entertainment, on 23rd May 2016!
