Tremendous production with 2.45 billion yen investment and Antarctic location. Digitally restored after 36 years to mark Kadokawa Pictures' 40th anniversary, under the supervision of cinematographer Daisaku Kimura.

Based on Sakyo Komatsu's SF novel. In 1982, a deadly virus MM-88 is stolen from an East German lab, and the airplane carrying the virus crashes in the Alps, almost wiping out the mankind except for some survivors in Antarctica. One of them, seismologist Yoshizumi, realizes an even bigger danger is imminent - Eastern United States may be hit by a mega quake, and a nuclear missile may be triggered.
Director Kinji Fukasaku

Fukasaku was born in Japan in 1930. Upon graduating from Nihon University College of Art in 1953, he joined Toei. Since his debut in 1961, he was a pillar of the Japanese film industry, creating many blockbuster films, such as Wolves, Pigs and People (1964), Outlaw Killers: Three Mad Dog Killers (1972) and Battles Without Honor and Humanity (1973). He collapsed while filming and died in 2003 at the age of 72.
