IGN has posted the red-band trailer for the sci-fi action thriller Mutant Chronicles. You can watch it after the jump.

Mutant Chronicles is set in the year 2707 on an unrecognizable Earth where a war is raging among four giant corporations who control the planet and battle over its dwindling resources.

The war is soon rendered irrelevant when an errant bomb shatters an ancient buried seal, releasing a horrific mutant army from its prison deep within the Earth. As the mutant scourge threatens human extinction, a squad of ragged soldiers, led by Mitch Hunter (Thomas Jane), descends into the earth in a last-ditch effort to destroy the mutants and save mankind.

Mutant Chronicles will premiere on video-on-demand services on March 27, followed by a theatrical release in select cities on April 24.
