"It's the big bunny suit."

Hitman director Xavier Gens released an excellent sci-fi thriller this year in The Divide, a film we admired here at CraveOnline. If you missed it in theaters, the film comes to DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, April 17, and we've got your first look at one of the disc's special features, an audio commentary track from Gens and stars Milo Ventimiglia ("Heroes"), Michael Biehn (Aliens), and Michael Eklund ("Alcatraz"). The film depicts in shocking detail the descent into madness following an apocalyptic event, as the inhabitants of a bomb shelter gradually turn away from conventional morality and transform into the kind of psychotic madmen you'd find in a Mad Max movie.

In the above clip, Xavier Gens reveals that a key scene was an homage to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and Milo Ventimiglia talks about getting stuck in what he calls "the giant bunny suit." Enjoy.
