Template:Lead too short Template:Refimprove Template:Infobox Television film 10.5: Apocalypse is a 2006 television miniseries written and directed by John Lafia. A sequel to 2004's 10.5, the film follows a series of catastrophic seismic disasters (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami, and sinkholes).


The plot of the movie centers around the occurrence of a huge 10.5 Earthquake in Los Angeles (which destroys the entire city) triggering a massive tsunami that destroys most of Hawaii, and ancient fault lines throughout the entire continent becoming active once again, eventually resulting in an earthquake which creates a split in the midwest, starting in South Dakota, going through the entire continent of North America, and ending in the Gulf of Mexico, nearly destroying the nuclear plant in Red Plains, Texas; thereby splitting the United States and Canada in half.

Cast Edit


10.5: Apocalypse began filming in Montreal, Canada in June 2005. A sequel to 10.5, the miniseries used much of the same staff, headed by returning executive producers Howard Braunstein, Michael Jaffe, and Gary Pearl. Director John Lafia, who also wrote script, decided to film the sequel using digital media, stating that it would allow the producers "to achieve a whole new level of visual effects and style that have heretofore not been seen on network television."[1]

The Sun Valley scene was filmed at the Mont Tremblant Resort, a popular skiing resort north of the city. All of the news reporters that appeared on TV in the film are all local news reporters for various news stations in Montreal. The visual effects for the movie were created by visual effects company "Hybride", which is based in Piedmont, Quebec.[2]
