Summary
  • A chilling vision of the future, the film takes place in 2013, when Los Angeles has become a ruined landmark
  • From the same team who created Escape from New York: in 2013, Los Angeles is in ruins, cut off from the mainland after a major earthquake, and no longer part of the United States. Into this haven for outlaws and undesirables comes Snake Plissken, who must locate a doomsday device before it is too late
