To save the human race, an underground city was built to last 200 years. Now their time is up and the inhabitants must unlock the secret for their survival. Step into the light when the action-packed family adventure City of Ember shines onto rental DVD, retail and Blu-ray on 23rd February 2009 courtesy of Entertainment In Video.

Fresh from its £1 million UK box office gross, this heart-thumping, edge-of-the seat adventure boasts an impressive cast and crew of acclaimed, award-winning talent. City of Ember was directed by Gil Kenan (Academy Award® nominee for Monster House) from a script written by Caroline Thompson (Edward Scissorhands) based on the best-selling novel by Jeanne Duprau.

The cast includes a host of screen favourites and up-and-coming young talent including Bill Murray (Get Smart, Lost in Translation); Tim Robbins (Zathura: A Space Adventure, War of the Worlds, Mystic River); recent Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement); Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies) and Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean, TV's The Office).

For generations, the people of the City of Ember have thrived in an amazing underground world of flickering lights and quiet contentment. Built as a refuge for humanity and powered by a massive generator, the city's time is almost up and now Ember is falling into darkness as the city's power supply fails.

Now two brave teenagers must embark on a dramatic race against time as they search Ember for clues that will unlock the ancient mystery of the city's existence, and help the citizens escape before the lights go out forever.
