    Looks like it owes a lot to Day After Tomorrow, 28 Days Later, and the brilliant novel Earth Abides.

    I do like Charlize Theron, and Viggo Mortenson is a fantastic actor so maybe it's worth checking out.

    You know what this is? It's an old movie called Panic in Year Zero! According to IMDb, here's the premise of that movie:

    While on a fishing trip, Harry Baldwin (Ray Milland) and his family hear an explosion and realize that Los Angeles has been leveled by a nuclear attack. Looters and killers are everywhere. Escaping to the hills with his family, he sets about the business of surviving in a world where, he knows, the old ideals of humanity will be first casualties. Not one to give up, he holds up a store for supplies and hides the family in a cave.
    Of course, in this movie they add in lots of dirt, grime, drama (as in desperation, shouting, running, and panicking), CG flames and explosions, etc. etc., but the premise seems technically the same, right down to the 'family has to survive' idea, which is much different than the 'person has to survive' idea.
